EC-IC bypass improves chronic ischemia in a patient with moyamoya disease secondary to sickle cell disease: an in vivo microdialysis study.

Patients with sickle cell disease may develop intracranial vascular disease, with the occlusion or obstruction of the large or small arteries, which may lead to the secondary development of moyamoya disease. In this report, we describe the neurochemical changes in the brain before, during, and after an extracranial-intracranial bypass procedure on a patient… CONTINUE READING
