A 49-year-old woman with probable moyamoya disease was surgically treated by combined direct and indirect methods, superficial temporal to middle cerebral artery anastomosis and galeoduroencephalosynangiosis by a burr-hole method developed by Kawamoto et al. Transient ischemic attacks and motor weakness of bilateral lower extremities disappeared completely within 1 month and never recurred during 1-year follow-up. Galeoduroencephalosynangiosis by a burr-hole method appears useful for preventing ischemic damage of the territory of the anterior cerebral artery in adult patients with probable moyamoya disease.
