Cerebral revascularization is used to augment or replace cerebral blood flow in patients at risk of developing cerebral ischemia. These include patients with moyamoya disease, occlusive cerebrovascular disease, skull base tumors, and complex aneurysms. Our aim in this review is to provide a comprehensive update of both surgical and anesthetic aspects of cerebral revascularization procedures. The anesthetic concerns for most patients presenting for different types of bypass procedures are similar and include the maintenance of adequate cerebral perfusion to prevent cerebral ischemia. Patients with complex aneurysms and tumors have additional considerations related to the surgical treatment of the underlying pathology.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Computed tomographic angiography in evaluation of superficial temporal to middle cerebral artery bypass. AU - Besachio, David A.. AU - Ziegler, Jordan. AU - Duncan, Timothy D.. AU - Wanebo, John S.. PY - 2010/5/1. Y1 - 2010/5/1. N2 - Catheter-directed digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is considered the standard for evaluation of superficial temporal to middle cerebral artery (STA-MCA) bypass patency. Few clinical investigations have been performed that evaluate the efficacy of computed tomographic angiography (CTA) in the assessment of extracranial-intracranial bypass. Using multi-detector row CTA, STA-MCA bypass patency was assessed in the initial postoperative period and several months afterward and compared with DSA. No significant difference was identified in the evaluation of graft patency between DSA and CTA. Although multiple modalities exist to evaluate STA-MCA bypass graft patency, the multidetector CTA is widely available and allows for rapid, accurate patency ...

While the use of CTA to assess EC-IC bypass postoperatively has been described [3], we demonstrate how CTA may be used for the preoperative assessment of the STA for potential use in EC-IC bypass. Although use of preoperative CTA for anatomic evaluation of the external carotid anatomy has been described for head and neck surgery [4, 5], to our knowledge, no report has yet been made demonstrating the utility of CTA for preoperative planning for EC-IC bypass. EC-IC bypass has remained one area where invasive catheter angiography has been thought necessary, specifically for evaluation of the STA vessel caliber as a bypass conduit. The patient described in this case illustration did not go on to surgery, therefore, no direct intraoperative comparison could be made between the findings at CTA and at DSA. To prove the utility of CTA for preoperative evaluation of the STA, intraoperative comparison of vessel caliber with DSA findings would be needed. If findings of vessel caliber at operation reliably ...

Intracranial Arterial Reconstruction. Microvascular techniques are utilized in order to prevent Strokes from occurring in patients with certain types of Obstructive Cerebrovascular conditions that do not respond to other therapies. Examples of this include extensive multivessel atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) that results in decreased blood supply to the Brain. An example of this is Extracranial to Intracranial Arterial Bypass Grafting as illustrated in Figures 5 through 8.. These operations are referred to as Cerebral Revascularization (or Extracranial-Intracranial [EC-IC] Bypass Graft). Patients requiring the reconstruction of the arterial blood supply to their Brain (either to deal with an obstructive blood vessel problem that would lead to Stroke, or where tumor removal requires the sacrifice of a major cerebral artery) will understand the requirement to have a Neurosurgeon with special skills, knowledge and expertise to undertake this extremely delicate task.. Several techniques ...

Moyamoya syndrome is a rare condition in which blood vessels at the base of the skull progressively narrow, limiting the flow of oxygenated blood to the brain. Surgical treatment options for Moyamoya syndrome include direct revascularization procedures such as an EC-IC bypass as well as indirect revascularization procedures like encephaloduroarteriosynangiosis (EDAS) and pial synangiosis. Here at Columbia University Medical Center/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, our neurosurgeons have particular expertise using these and other surgeries to treat patients with Moyamoya syndrome.. "Moyamoya" means "puff of smoke" in Japanese, and the condition is so named because the body grows a secondary network of small vessels in an effort to compensate for the restricted blood flow. On an arteriogram, the network of new vessels resembles a cloud-or puff of smoke. Moyamoya is more common in Japan than in the U.S., but it is unusual everywhere.. The blood vessel network that gives Moyamoya its name may lead to ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Targeted extracranial-intracranial bypass with intra-aneurysmal administration of indocyanine green. T2 - Case report. AU - Bain, Mark D.. AU - Moskowitz, Shaye I.. AU - Rasmussen, Peter A.. AU - Hui, Ferdinand. PY - 2010/12. Y1 - 2010/12. N2 - BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: Early origin of the middle cerebral artery M2 segment is a normal variant. When such a vessel is occluded proximally, the parenchyma distal to the vessel may become ischemic. Targeted extracranial to intracranial bypass to such a specific branch may preserve perfusion to the end organ. We describe the use of intra-aneurysmal injection of indocyanine green to identify a target middle cerebral artery branch (MCA) for bypass, immediately followed by proximal parent vessel sacrifice via endovascular embolization. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 45-year-old woman presented to an outside hospital with headaches. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a giant aneurysm of the right MCA. The aneurysm gave rise to an M2 branch that ...
Introduction: Silent cerebral microbleeds (CMB) are common in Moyamoya Disease (MMD) and Moyamoya syndrome (MMS) in Asia. The incidence was reported to be 30-40%. The presence of CMB was found to be a predictor for subsequent cerebral hemorrhage in MMD. The significance of CMB in MMD/MMS in non-Asian population has not been reported. We try to investigate the prevalence of CMB in MMD/MMS in United States and its predictive value for subsequent cerebral hemorrhage.. Methods: Moyamoya Database was established in our institution after reviewing patients with ICD9 code of Moyamoya Disease or Moyamoya Syndrome or cerebrovascular occlusive disease from 2007 to 2015. Patients in the database were reviewed retrospectively and included in the study if there were MR images (including GRE, SWI or T2* sequences) at diagnosis or during follow up and available for review. Patients with poor image quality were excluded. Patients were noted to have microbleeds if it was found on initial or follow up MRI. ...
A complete occlusion of the internal carotid artery (ICA) is an important cause of cerebrovascular disease. A never-symptomatic ICA occlusion has a relatively benign course, whereas symptomatic occlusion increases future risk of strokes. Ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging and contrast angiography are useful diagnostic tests, and functional imaging of the brain (eg, with positron emission tomography) helps to understand haemodynamic factors involved in the pathophysiology of brain ischaemia. Recently, there has been a resurgence of interest in the role of extracranial-intracranial bypass surgery for the treatment of completely occluded ICA. With advances in the measurement of cerebral haemodynamics, it may be possible to identify high-risk patients who could benefit from the bypass surgery ...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: It is unclear whether very old patients benefit from organized inpatient (stroke unit) care. The aim of this work was to compare the clinical outcome of patients with first-ever ischemic stroke aged either ,/=80 or ,80 years who were treated conservatively (without cerebral revascularization) in a university-based stroke unit. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We included 147 (11%) patients ,/=80 years and 1241 (89%) patients, ,80 years. All patients underwent clinical examination, blood tests, electrocardiography (ECG), brain imaging and cerebrovascular ultrasound. Additional investigations were done at the discretion of the treating physician. The modified Rankin scale (mRS) score was used to assess the 3-month outcome (favorable: mRS, 0-1; poor: mRS, 2-6; death of any cause). RESULTS: Stroke severity did not differ between both groups [median National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score, 4]. Younger patients underwent magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the brain, MR ...

A total of 1,377 patients with symptomatic obstructive cerebrovascular disease (most commonly, internal carotid artery occlusion) entered a trial in which they were randomized to either medical or surgical (extracranial-intracranial bypass) therapy. All but 8 had hemoglobin estimations performed at entry. The patients were followed for an average of 55.8 months. In the medical group, the 325 patients with high normal hemoglobin concentration (15 g/l or more) suffered no more ischemic strokes than the 382 patients with lower values (less than 15 g/l). Those strokes that did occur were no more severe in the high than the low hemoglobin group. Hemoglobin concentration did not emerge as a prognostic factor in those patients treated surgically (n = 662). This prospective study counters the hypothesis that high normal hemoglobin concentration is associated with poor outcome in patients with symptomatic obstructive disease of the carotid and cerebral arteries. ...
With only few reports of large artery occlusion due to a fat embolus, the diagnosis can be a challenge, delaying correct diagnosis and management.1 Knowledge of the hallmark hypodense artery sign and the differentiation with an air embolus, which typically has a density less than −1000 HU (vs −30 to −70 HU for fat) is mandatory.. In patients with acute or evolving stroke, outcome is related to timing of reperfusion.7 Unlike thromboembolic arterial occlusion, no guidelines exist for the management of ischaemic stroke secondary to fat emboli. Endovascular thrombectomy is now the standard of care for patients with acute ischaemic stroke secondary to acute large vessel occlusion, and seems the most appropriate first-line treatment for large fat emboli.4 Multiple successful fat emboli retrievals have been reported.4 In our case, endovascular retrieval was unsuccessful, possibly due to the time elapsed between initial onset and the endovascular attempt (24 hours).. As the patient was further ...

SUMMARY: Giant intracranial aneurysms are rare vascular pathologies associated with high morbidity and mortality. The purpose of this in vivo study was to assess giant intracranial aneurysms and their wall microstructure by 7T MR imaging, previously only visualized in histopathologic examinations. Seven giant intracranial aneurysms were evaluated, and 2 aneurysms were available for histopathologic examination. Six of 7 (85.7%) showed intraluminal thrombus of various sizes. Aneurysm walls were depicted as hypointense in TOF-MRA and SWI sequences with excellent contrast ratios to adjacent brain parenchyma (range, 0.01-0.60 and 0.58-0.96, respectively). The triple-layered microstructure of the aneurysm walls was visualized in all aneurysms in TOF-MRA and SWI. This could be related to iron deposition in the wall, similar to the findings in 2 available histopathologic specimens. In vivo 7T TOF-MRA and SWI can delineate the aneurysm wall and the triple-layered wall microstructure in giant intracranial ...

Dr. Peter Nakaji in Phoenix, AZ, treats Moyamoya Disease, a rare cerebrovascular disease caused by blocked arteries at the base of the brain.
The course of MMD spans from clinical silence for several years to rapid progression.5,7 Its severity can be classified into six stages based on Suzukis classification, which highlights the angiographic evolution of the disease (Table 1).8,9 A management plan is decided accordingly.. There is no curative treatment for arterial occlusion regression or Moyamoya vessel prevention. Due to the more progressive nature of the disease in the pediatric population, treatment is geared toward preventing irreversible brain damage.8,12 Treatment is strongly recommended for symptomatic adults since the stroke rate is estimated at 10% to 15% per year compared with 3% in asymptomatic patients.7,9,11,12. The mainstay of treatment in symptomatic patients with ischemic MMD is surgical revascularization.9,12 The goal is to improve cerebral blood flow and prevent infarction. Direct or indirect bypass has been shown to improve blood flow and decrease ischemic events postoperatively.12 Post-op complications may ...
Moyamoya is a disease in which certain arteries in the brain are constricted and blood flow in the brain is blocked by the constriction.
Moyamoya Disease is a progressive disease that affects the blood vessels in the brain (cerebrovascular). It is characterized by narrowing and/or closing of the main artery to the brain (carotid).
A 67-year-old man, who had suffered from right cerebral infarction that resulted in left hemiparesis, underwent right superficial temporal artery-middle cerebral artery anastomosis in 1991. From March 2000, dizziness occurred during use of his right hand. His arteriogram revealed late filling of the occluded right subclavian artery by reversed flow from the right vertebral artery and 50% stenosis of the left internal carotid artery. We performed subcutaneous axillo-axillary bypass grafting with mild hypothermia on June 1st, 2000. An 8mm ePTFE tube with a ring was anastomosed to both axillary arteries in end-to-side fashion with continuous sutures. Thereafter, symptoms disappeared. One month after the procedure, his arteriogram showed that the bypass filled the right vertebral artery in an antegrade fashion as well as the right axillary artery. Axillo-axillary bypass grafting with mild hypothermia seemed to be safe and effective for high-risk subclavian steal syndrome ...

Preoperative symptoms included headache in 3 patients, transient ischemic attack in 10, cerebral infarction in 3, and intracranial hemorrhage in 4 patients. Intervals between the initial bypass surgery and repeat bypass surgery were 0.3-30 years (median 3 years). In group A, superficial temporal artery to middle cerebral artery (MCA) anastomosis and indirect bypass were performed on 7 hemispheres. Only indirect bypass was performed on 3 hemispheres because of the lack of suitable donor or recipient arteries. In group B, occipital artery (OA) to PCA anastomosis and indirect bypass were conducted on 4 hemispheres, and OA-MCA anastomosis and indirect bypass on 1 hemisphere. Only indirect bypass was conducted on 7 hemispheres because of the lack of suitable recipient arteries. All 22 repeat bypass surgeries were successfully conducted. During follow-up periods (median 4 years), none of the patients suffered repeat stroke except 1 patient who died of recurrent intracerebral hemorrhage 3 years after ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Understanding and treating moyamoya disease in children. AU - Jodi, L. Smith. PY - 2009/10/13. Y1 - 2009/10/13. N2 - Moyamoya disease, a known cause of pediatric stroke, is an unremitting cerebrovascular occlusive disorder of unknown etiology that can lead to devastating, permanent neurological disability if left untreated. It is characterized by progressive stenosis of the intracranial internal carotid arteries and their distal branches and the nearly simultaneous appearance of basal arterial collateral vessels that vascularize hypoperfused brain distal to the occluded vessels. Moyamoya disease may be idiopathic or may occur in association with other syndromes. Most children with moyamoya disease present with recurrent transient ischemic attacks or strokes. Although there is no definitive medical treatment, numerous direct and indirect revascularization procedures have been used to improve the compromised cerebral circulation, with outcomes varying according to procedure type. ...

This is the first case report of a CADASIL patient with MCA stenosis who underwent STA-MCA bypass to increase cerebral perfusion in the localized ischemic area. In CADASIL, reductions in both CBF and CVR occur in white matter showing T2-hyperintensity. It has been suggested that the degeneration of vascular smooth muscle cells causes arteriopathy, which leads to cerebral hypoperfusion and impaired autoregulation (Chabriat et al. 2000; Huang et al. 2010; Singhal and Markus 2005; van den Boom et al. 2003). Interestingly, the white-matter hyperintensity in the temporal lobe was found predominant in the left side in this case. This asymmetry of white-matter hyperintensity is very unusual rare in CADASIL, since it would suggest that these lesions do not originate from ischemia, but edema instead. The lower extent observed in the most hypoperfused temporal lobe further support that these lesions are not related to ischemia but mat actually result from edema with blood brain barrier dysfunction. ...
