Anterior cerebral artery (ACA) territory, a crucial area of intellectual development in children, is frequently involved in the progress of moyamoya disease (MMD). However, revascularization surgeries for this area are not as established as surgeries for middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory. This study aimed to describe our experience and study the effect of revascularizing ACA territory with periocranium and dural leaflets, which is referred to as 'encephalo-duro-periosteal-synangiosis (EDPS)'.
