Encephaloduroarteriosynangiosis Surgery For Sickle Persons

 Encephaloduroarteriosynangiosis surgery (EDAS surgery) is a surgical procedure used in the treatment of artery complications in sickle cell disease patients. EDAS surgery requires the section of an artery that is normally connected to the scalp onto the surface of the brain.

New blood vessels grow from this artery into the brain itself. EDAS surgery is a surgical treatment that improves blood flow in the brain especially. It involves applying superficial temporal artery branches, or sometimes middle cerebral artery branches, after careful dissection, directly onto the pial surface of the brain.

The goal of performing an EDAS surgery is to provide a new source of blood for an ischemic area of the brain. EDAS surgery treats the developed condition of progress restricted blood flow to the brain in sickle cell disease patients. When there is a restriction of blood flow, certain areas of the brain are deprived of the oxygen and glucose they need to function well.

The body’s attempt to compensate causes the body to grow a network of thin, fragile blood vessels. EDAS surgery helps to revascularize the brain by providing access to a healthy artery with a fat blood supply. Vessels grow like roots from this artery into the brain.

EDAS surgery is a group of surgical procedures in which the brain grows vessels from a new blood supply. The conditions developed in sickle cell disease patients that require EDAS surgery is cerebral ischemia, cerebrovascular disease, moyamoya syndrome, pediatric vascular conditions, atherosclerosis, intracranial stenosis, and transient ischemic attack TIA.

Pial synangiosis is a procedure that is closely related to EDAS surgery; it is another example of indirect vascularization.  EDAS surgery is a neurosurgical revascularization procedure for sickle cell disease patients who have developed cerebrovascular complications. The artery that is the main target of this procedure is the superior temporal artery STA, which is along with the temple of the scalp.
