An obstruction, constriction or malformation on your arteries can be a serious and frightening issue. The dangers of cerebrovascular conditions such as Moyamoya disease and cavernous malformations can give you or your loved ones painful and stressful symptoms that can only be fixed through neurosurgical treatment. If you have been diagnosed with a cerebral disease and are in need of treatment options, a revascularization procedure could make a great impact in your life and return you to the health you need.
This rare condition causes a constriction in the arteries at the base of the brain. The brain will create a cluster of small, cloud-like arteries to compensate for the loss of blood flow to certain parts of the brain. If left untreated, Moyamoya disease could potentially lead to serious problems such as functional loss, mental decay and even death. It’s important to identify the symptoms of the condition for proper medical action to be taken. The symptoms include:
- Trouble speaking
- Mini strokes
- Involuntary movement
Clusters of small or large abnormal blood vessels are known as cavernous malformations. While many people may experience no symptoms, others will face the disease’s full effects. You may be suffering from cavernous malformations if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Weakness in the limbs
- Vision difficulties
- Issues with attention or memory
- Issues with balance
Our neurosurgeons can offer you the most innovative revascularization procedures to treat your condition. A revascularization treatment can consist of either a bypass surgical procedure or a percutaneous coronary intervention. The main goal of these procedures is to restore or assist the blood flow into the affected part of the body (usually the brain) and lessen the dangers of the condition’s symptoms. The procedure’s minimally-invasive nature will give you a shorter recovery time and hospital stay.
When undergoing neurosurgery, it is important to understand the risks and outcomes that it may come with. Prior to surgery, our neurosurgeons will provide you with all the information you need about your procedure. This includes risks, possible outcomes and recovery time.
