Risk factors for progression of adult moyamoya angiopathy

Takeaway

  • Risk factors for progression of moyamoya angiopathy (MMA) in adults were identified in a large number of patients with this rare condition.

Why this matters

  • Revascularization is recommended for moyamoya angiopathy (MMA) in children, but the disease course in adults may warrant different intervention.

  • Additional evidence is needed to guide risk assessment, treatment decisions, and design of clinical trials for adults with MMA.
