BACKGROUND The best revascularization strategy for moyamoya disease (MMD) remains unknown. Our aim was to characterize angiographic revascularization effects of a bilateral standardized revascularization approach, consisting of superficial temporal artery (STA)-middle cerebral artery (MCA) bypass and encephalomyosynangiosis (EMS) on one hemisphere and single EMS on the contralateral hemisphere of each patient, and to compare the effects of both revascularization strategies on cerebral… CONTINUE READING
