Abstract

COMMENTARY 44.7%. Funaki et al investigated 75 hemorrhagic hemispheres n this issue, Liu et al found that choroidal collateral anastomo- of 75 patients and found that choroidal anastomosis and poste- Isis was a predictor of the recurrent hemorrhage of Moyamoya rior cerebral artery involvement were factors associated with disease (MMD), especially lateral posterior choroidal artery anas- posterior hemorrhage. They concluded that choroidal anasto- tomosis. This study will further deepen our understanding of the mosis might be considered a potential source of posterior risk factors of MMD rebleeding. hemorrhage at high risk of rebleeding.
