OBJECTIVE Cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome (HPS) is a potential complication of extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass for moyamoya disease; however, the pathological threshold of the early cerebral blood flow (CBF) increases after EC-IC bypass has yet to be determined. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the predictive and diagnostic values of early quantitative CBF analysis for the detection of HPS after EC-IC bypass for moyamoya disease. METHODS We quantitatively evaluated regional… CONTINUE READING
