Moyamoya disease, a rare chronic cerebrovascular disease with a fragile vascular network at the base of the brain, can cause ischemic or hemorrhagic strokes or seizures. Precise blood pressure control and adequate analgesia are important for patients with moyamoya disease to prevent neurological events such as ischemia and hemorrhage. This study aimed to compare the intraoperative mean arterial pressure of pregnant women with moyamoya disease according to the mode of anesthesia (general anesthesia versus spinal anesthesia) used during cesarean delivery.
