Abstract

Risk factors for cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) in moyamoya disease (MMD) remain unknown, and whether the presence or distribution of CMBs is related to the subsequent hemorrhagic events needs to be confirmed. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between intracranial vascular morphology and the incidence/distribution patterns of CMBs as well as to determine the outcome in adult patients with MMD.
