Timing of revascularization in ischemic Moyamoya disease: association of early versus d...
World Neurosurgery; Xu R, Xie ME et. al.

Aug 6th, 2022 - Moyamoya disease (MMD) patients who present primarily with ischemic stroke are known to have higher rates of perioperative strokes as compared with those who present with non-stroke symptoms. The optimal timing for revascularization for these pati...

Long noncoding RNA profile of the intracranial artery in patients with moyamoya disease.
Journal of Neurosurgery; Mamiya T, Kanamori F et. al.

Jul 31st, 2022 - Moyamoya disease (MMD) is a rare cerebrovascular disease characterized by progressive stenosis of the internal carotid artery (ICA) and secondary formation of collateral vessels. Revascularization surgery is performed in patients with MMD to preve...

The usefulness and safety of dexmedetomidine for postoperative sedation in pediatric pa...
Journal of Neurosurgery. Pediatrics; Kanamori F, Araki Y et. al.

Jul 29th, 2022 - After revascularization surgery in pediatric patients with moyamoya disease (MMD), resting and avoiding crying is important. However, this inaction is often difficult because of pain or anxiety. Dexmedetomidine (DEX), which has sedative and analge...

Prediction of hemorrhagic cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome after direct bypass surgery ...
Journal of Neurosurgery; Pang CH, Lee SU et. al.

Jul 29th, 2022 - The aim of this study was to identify predictive factors for hemorrhagic cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome (hCHS) after direct bypass surgery in adult nonhemorrhagic moyamoya disease (non-hMMD) using quantitative parameters on rapid processing of p...

RNF213 R4810K Variant in Suspected Unilateral Moyamoya Disease Predicts Contralateral P...
Journal of the American Heart Association; Ok T, Jung YH et. al.

Jul 26th, 2022 - Background Early-stage unilateral moyamoya disease (MMD) is difficult to discriminate from isolated intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis, and identification of contralateral progression may aid in the diagnosis of MMD. The RNF213 (ring finger pro...

Effect of Recombinant Human EPO on the Postoperative Neurologic Outcome in Pediatric Moyamoya Patients

Jun 3rd, 2022 - This study evaluates the effect of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) on the neovascularization of pediatric moyamoya disease patients. rHuEPO will be administrated during perioperative period of the first revascularization surgery. Primary...

Long-term Outcomes of Conservative Management in Patients With Moyamoya Disease and Their First-degree Relatives (LAMORA)

Jun 2nd, 2022 - Moyamoya disease (MMD) is a chronic occlusive-stenosis cerebrovascular disease that characterized by the stenosis of internal carotid artery termination and the formation of net-like vessel. It is a multifactorial disease caused by genetic, inflam...

The Role of m6A RNA Modification in Moyamoya Disease

Feb 17th, 2022 - Moyamoya disease (MMD) is a rare cerebrovascular disorder characterized by occlusion of bilateral internal carotid and intracerebral arteries with the compensatory growth of fragile small vessels. The etiology of disease is still unclear. The path...

RNF213 Variants and Collateral Vessels in Moyamoya Disease

Feb 17th, 2022 - Moyamoya disease (MMD) is a chronic cerebrovascular disorder characterized by the presence of occlusion which occurs at the internal carotid arteries and their main branches during the development of a basal collateral network. The ring finger 213...

NIRS to Evaluate Haemodynamic Reserve in Paediatric Moyamoya

Dec 16th, 2021 - Moyamoya disease is a cerebrovascular condition in which there is chronic brain hypoperfusion. As surgery can possibly augment brain blood flow, a method for evalutaing cerebrovascualr reserve would be helpful in selecting patients for interventio...
