Wanebo, Dr. Nadia Khan, Dr. Joseph Zabramski, and Dr. Robert Spetzler, recently published by Thieme, is a key clinical reference that covers the disciplines involved in managing patients with moyamoya disease, including diagnostic work up, imaging, neurocognitive evaluation, and surgical options for pediatric and adult patients. The text and accompanying videos, available on Thieme’s MediaCenter, provide neurosurgeons and other health professionals treating Moyamoya patients with all the information they need to make the right diagnostic and surgical decisions.

“This multi-authored, well-organized monograph is a must read for any physician involved in the care of patients with moyamoya disease. It is moderately short and very easy to read but still provides a state-of-the-art review of the disease with updated aspects, especially in its etiology and pathogenesis, epidemiology, and long-term results.” – from the Foreword by Kiyonobu Ikezaki, MD, PhD

All neurosurgeons and neurologists caring for Moyamoya patients will find this book to be an important reference that they will consult often in their daily practice.
