Surgery for moyamoya disease is offered to prevent neurologic deterioration from strokes. Two types of surgical approaches are offered for patients with moyamoya: direct and indirect revascularization.
Moyamoya surgical procedures requires approximately three days of hospitalization. Post-operatively, patients experience some minor scalp pain from the incision, and some patients may get headaches. Patients with moyamoya have minimal restrictions after surgery.
Moyamoya, a rare cerebrovascular disease, threatened Tara MacInnes' future. Neurosurgery expertise meant no more strokes and a return to the activities she loves.
