My husband was diagnosed with Moyamoya a few days ago. Is it a hereditary disease? We have a child together. Also is the recovery from the surgery fairly easy? What should we expect after surgery?

REPLY

Are there studies to backup that Graves Disease (when active) or Hyperthyroidism (when in a hyper state) can cause Moyamoya progression?

My son is 2 years old, he had a stroke a month ago.We found out he has Moyamoya Syndrome.He has had surgery on one side of his brain so far.He has tested positive for Lupus anticoagulant- and had to be retested to rule out a false positive.Would having lupus anticoagulant affect his next surgery?

REPLY

Is there any definitive evidence that long-term outcomes of direct is better than indirect? It makes sense that a direct graft gets blood flow going faster, but are the post-op risks worth it?

REPLY

In your experience how fast is the progression rate of Moyamoya? Is annual imaging suffice to follow the progression?
