Hi all,

I am doing MCAo via the original Koizumi method using the CCA as the insertion site of the occluding filament and was wondering if anyone knew the reason that so many protocols cauterize or ligate the external carotid when it appears not to be necessary to successfully insert a filament through the common carotid, into the internal carotid to occlude the MCA? Any insight on this would be very helpful! Thanks!
