BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We have previously reported that cerebral blood flow decreased and oxygen extraction fraction and cerebral blood volume increased in pediatric patients with moyamoya disease, whereas these values did not change significantly in adult patients. In this study, we measured the cerebrovascular response to hypercapnia using 15O H2O positron emission tomography (PET) in each group of patients. These data were also compared with the oxygen extraction fraction and transit time… CONTINUE READING
