Sorry to hear that. I was diagnosed October 2011. I suffered a small stroke and was hospitalized for a week. I was also told I had experienced TIA's in the past.

That's a really good question. Does anyone know the answer?

Hello MoyaMom:

I wanted to say that I dealt with neuro;s in bham at UAB and they were good but am now seeing neuros at Mayo clinic in jaksonille, fl.... in 07 i was seen by a neuro in bha who said i had neurovasculitis and gave me lots of meds... they helped but only for a bit. last year everything came back with a vengance and my neuro here in dothan suspected moyamoya and sent me to Mayo.... that goodness he did b/c now i am being seen by a group there who sepcialize in MMD and are hopefully going to get this taken care of as best as they can.. i would suggest a 2nd and 3rd opinion for your son dear......

Jill, Michelle and Kevin,
My son is 28 and had a stroke on July 23rd of this year. He did not have any lasting symptoms. That started a barrage of tests which led to a neuro in Ft. Walton, FL. The surgeon, suspected MM, because he was stationed in Japan and saw it alot, but is not qualified, by his own admittance, to treat it. He sent us to UA Birmingham Medical Center where he saw a Neurosurgeon who did an angiogram and diagnosed MM. My son just went back this week for a special MRI that measures blood flow. His bloodflow is normal, and the veins his body has made to make up for the 100% blocked ones are very strong in the NS's opinion. So he is saying wait until symptoms get worse, even though he has never done an MM surgery. Needless to say we are seeking 2nd and 3rd opinions and fast!! We have DVD's of angiogram, CTA, and recent MRI. I read that Dr. Steinberg in LA will look at them at no charge and give a determination. Dr. Lewis at UFL Gainesville, FL will look at written reports of the tests at no charge. That is where we are at this point. Any tips, info or suggestions are greatly appreciated!! Sorry, Jill for the repeat, I sent this to you privately.
Marguerite

I am 59 yrs old and have just been diagnosed.  There are so many questions, and I do not have any answers.  But, if I were you I would research more doctors that are familiar with MoyaMoya.  This website is great for that.  I found one and will be seeing him later this month.  I just cannot accept the wait and see attitude.  I had a TIA and don't want to have more...or worse.  Hope this helps.

I asked my husband's neurosurgeon about this since I'd heard that the STA-MCA was the "better" procedure and he was doing EDAS.  (My husband is 58 and recently diagnosed and has had surgery on one side with the other side to come).  What he said is that for adults he does the EDAS procedure unless he is dealing with an aneurysm or AVF, in which case he does STA-MCA.  He feels the slower development of blood vessels works better for adults, particularly for someone like my husband who was relatively asymptomatic.
