Resumo: The technique described by Jannetta uses Teflon “turfs” (polytetrafluoroethylene). With the technological advancement of materials it is increasingly harder to !nd Te"on in the market. The author describes a technique which uses a portion of a vascular prosthesis made of polyester (FlowNit Bioseal®) manufactured by JOTEC® Gmbh reference 35BI1206. The use of this vascular prosthesis seems to be an effective alternative for intracranial neurovascular decompression. One of its advantages is having a circumferential format, which provides greater stability and safety to possible displacement.
