Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Fibromuscular Dysplasia

  • Angiographic changes of fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD), however, are found in 10% to 20% of patients with carotid dissections [22].
  • Advances in percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) have renewed interest in developing better noninvasive screening tests for identifying patients with potentially correctable hypertension or renal impairment due to renovascular disease caused by either fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) or arteriosclerosis [23].
