Combined direct and indirect reconstructive vascular surgery on the fronto-parieto-occipital region in moyamoya disease

Clinical Neurology and Neurosurgery
D S KimJ K Kang


Between January 1992 and December 1995, eight patients with Moyamoya disease, aged from 2 to 39 years, underwent encephalo-duro-arterio-myo-synangiosis (EDAMS) on the frontal region, superficial temporal artery to middle cerebral artery (STA-MCA) anastomosis combined with encephalo-myo-synangiosis (EMS) on the parietal region and encephaloduro-arterio-synangiosis (EDAS) on the occipital region using the frontal and parietal branch of the STA and the occipital artery, respectively. The development of postoperative collateral formation was assessed by carotid angiography and the improvement of clinical symptoms was evaluated for over 1 year after the bypass surgery. Of the 13 sides which underwent EDAMS and STA-MCA anastomosis with EMS, 11 sides resulted in extensive revascularization on the frontoparietal region and two sides showed localized collaterals, whereas EDAS on the occipital region demonstrated extensive and localized revascularization in each four sides and no evidence of revascularization in two sides among ten sides which underwent the EDAS. The clinical improvement due to the combined reconstructive surgery was very excellent in the reduction of the incidence of transient ischemic attacks (TIA) and reversible ische...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
