Prevalence and Clinicoepidemiological Features of Moyamoya Disease in Japan: Findings From a Nationwide Epidemiological Survey
The estimated prevalence of moyamoya disease in Japan has almost doubled during the recent decade and the clinicoepidemiological features of the patients in the present study were almost similar to those obtained in previous ones.
Epidemiological and Clinical Features of Moyamoya Disease in the USA
The number of patients identified and admitted with Moyamoya disease has risen dramatically in the last decade and this study can lead to a better understanding of the disease pattern and healthcare consequences in the USA and suggests that pathophysiologic differences in Moyamoy disease may exist.
Epidemiology of Moyamoya Disease in Taiwan: A Nationwide Population-Based Study
The incidence of moyamoya disease has increased in adults but not in children from 2000 to 2011 in Taiwan, and sex ratio and comorbid conditions differed by age and study period.
Novel epidemiological features of moyamoya disease
The epidemiological features of moyamoya disease determined by this survey varied considerably from previous data: the detection rate and prevalence of the disease were higher than those reported previously, and the highest peak of onset age was older than those report previously.
Incidence, Prevalence, and Survival of Moyamoya Disease in Korea: A Nationwide, Population-Based Study
The prevalence and incidence presented in this study are higher than those in previous studies, and this study demonstrates that the burden of moyamoya disease in Korea is substantial.
Prevalence and Epidemiological Features of Moyamoya Disease in Korea
The number of Moyamoya patients in Korea is increasing, which could partly be explained by a recent increase in newly diagnosed cases, suggesting that a more careful consideration of the disease and better diagnostic techniques should be promoted among clinicians.
Regional differences in incidence and patient characteristics of moyamoya disease: a systematic review
MMD incidence was higher in Japan and China than in Taiwan and North America and presenting symptoms showed regional differences, which are thus far unexplained.


Estimated Prevalence of Sjogren's Syndrome in Japan : Findings from a Nationwide Epidemiological Survey
The peak of age distribution of SS patients reported was in their fifties, and the highest prevalence rate was observed among females with their sixth decade ; being 62.2 per 100, 000 population.
A Nationwide Survey of Congenital Hydrocephalus in Japan — Estimated Prevalence and Incidence
A nationwide survey of congenital Hydrocephalus, including secondary hydrocephalus occurring within one year after birth, was carried out in 1988 using two questionnaires and was concerned with the clinico-epidemiological features of the disease in those patients.
Response Bias in the Nationwide Epidemiological Survey of an Intractable Disease in Japan
The ratio of the mean number of patients among “responded” hospitals to that among all hospitals was found to be between 1.0 and 1.1 ; suggesting that this assumption was sufficiently valid.
Epidemiology of diseases of unknown etiology, specified as "intractable diseases".
The chronological history of development of the Research Committee and some scientific accomplishments by the recent Research Committee (1993-1995) were summarized, mainly focusing on descriptive, analytical and other epidemiological studies.
[A method of interval estimation for number of patients in the nationwide epidemiological survey on intractable diseases].
A method for estimating the intervals for the number of patients with intractable diseases from nationwide epidemiological surveys was developed under the assumption that response is independent of
