BACKGROUND The best strategy to assess the changes in brain hemodynamics following superficial temporal artery (STA)-middle cerebral artery (MCA) bypass in patients with Moyamoya disease remains unknown. The purpose of the present study was to assess cerebral hemodynamics using perfusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (PWI) before and after STA-MCA bypass surgery in patients with Moyamoya disease. METHODS STA-MCA bypass surgeries were performed on 23 symptomatic cerebral hemispheres in… CONTINUE READING
