Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) was first observed in by Leadbetter and Burkland Intimal fibroplasia (renal FMD). Figure 1: Fibromuscular dysplasia of the right renal artery.

Fibromuscular dysplasia In fibromuscular dysplasia, the muscle and fibrous tissues in your arteries thicken, causing the arteries to narrow. When a diagnosis of FMD is considered for a patient thorough medical history, family history as well as vascular examination should be completed.

Ann Vasc Surg ;24 2: Nephrol Dial Transplant ;11 7: FMD may be complicated by renal artery dissection and kidney infarction with abrupt flank pain, hematuria and rapidly progressive hypertension [ 18 ].

A pathologic-arteriographic correlation of renal arterial disease. Tweet MS, et al. What is it used for? We report the case of a year-old female, without harmful habits, a history of dyslipidaemia, obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome and chronic iron deficiency anaemia, followed up in the Nephrology outpatient service for about 20 years due to AHT unresponsive to treatment 5 drugs.

Mean systolic blood pressure SBP: Restenosis after a first percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty.


Less typical presentations Fig. It is worth noting that FMD was first described in pairs of cousins and monozygous twins. Fibromuscular dysplasia FMD is a rare medical condition. High spatial resolution and short acquisition time are the major advantages of the current CTA studies.

It could also be caused if the position of your arteries in your body is abnormal, or if a medication or displasua causes your arteries to develop abnormally. Children with FMD often report various non-specific symptoms or present with hypertension during routine physical examinations.

High-resolution echo-tracking methods are promising alternatives to angiography for screening asymptomatic relatives because subclinical alterations of the common carotid artery wall seem common in patients with renal artery, medial FMD [ 33 ].

Cervical artery FMD, mainly affecting the internal carotid artery, is seldom symptomatic. Symptoms of dissection include headache, sudden neck pain, drooping of one of the eyes or unequal pupils, and, in severe cases, symptoms of stroke or TIA.

Stenosis often appears tubular Fig. Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine. There is no published comparative study of non-invasive tests for detecting carotid artery FMD, although Doppler ultrasound may disclose irregular patterns of stenosis that are suggestive. Cigarette smoking and renovascular hypertension. The CTA shows no particular signs. The prevalence of asymptomatic renal artery FMD is, however, one order of magnitude higher: FMD-related aneurysms and dissection Macroaneurysms affecting the renal or carotid arteries are more frequent in FMD than in the general population see Epidemiology section below.

Arterial dissection According to Olin et al. In consecutive angiograms from patients with FMD or atherosclerotic renal artery stenoses, readers blinded for age, sex, and clinical context generally agreed on the etiology kappa coefficient 0.


FMD is currently defined as an idiopathic, segmental, non-inflammatory and non-atherosclerotic disease of the musculature of arterial walls, leading to stenosis of small and medium-sized arteries.

We are not aware of any follow-up fibgomuscular in patients with untreated cervicocranial FMD.

Therefore, having a more difficult and complex prognostic course. One characteristic histological image can confirm a diagnosis of vasculitis and exclude other diseases, such as neoplasia and infection. If claudication or limb ischemia is consequent to FMD in the extremities, angioplasty may be implemented. Incidental fibromuscular dysplasia in potential renal donors: However, the fibrmuscular signs of inflammation are absent in about onethird of cases of vasculitis.

Advertising revenue diplasia our not-for-profit mission. The differentiating presentations are suggestive of FMD being a unique syndrome dosplasia respect to the pediatric population.

Current concept of the disease. Noninvasive diagnostic tests include, in increasing order of accuracy, ultrasonography, magnetic resonance angiography and computed tomography angiography.

The standard revascularization procedure is balloon angioplasty with bailout stent placement if necessary.
