Cerebral blood flow findings in moyamoya disease in adults

Acta Neurologica Scandinavica
E DietrichsT Veger

Abstract

Three adult patients with moyamoya disease are described. They presented with intracerebral hematoma, cerebral infarction and subarachnoid hemorrhage, respectively. Subarachnoid hemorrhage is rare in moyamoya and is usually the result of aneurysm rupture. No aneurysm was found in our patient. Regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and the cerebral perfusion reserve assessed by the acetazolamide test, were significantly reduced in all three patients. The areas with most reduced baseline rCBF and most impaired vasoreactivity did not always correspond to the site of the vascular accident, indicating that these CBF changes were at least in part due to the moyamoya disease and/or its underlying causes, and not solely to the vascular accidents.

Aneurysm

Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.

Blood Brain Barrier

The blood brain barrier is a border that separates blood from cerebrospinal fluid. Discover the latest search on this highly selective semipermeable membrane here.

Blood Brain Barrier Chips

The blood brain barrier (BBB) is comprised of endothelial cells that regulate the influx and outflux of plasma concentrations. Lab-on-a-chip devices allow scientists to model diseases and mechanisms such as the passage of therapeutic antibodies across the BBB. Discover the latest research on BBB chips here.
