Collapse Box


The main objectives of this expert consensus are to raise awareness about fibromuscular dysplasia, which is more frequent and more often systemic than previously thought and can sometimes have devastating consequences; to provide up-to-date recommendations for the diagnosis, evaluation, and management of the disease; and to identify research priorities. The emphasis has been put on recommendations for daily practice. The main topics covered include definition, classification, diagnosis, and management of fibromuscular dysplasia in adult patients with symptomatic involvement of the renal arteries, supra-aortic trunks, and digestive and peripheral arteries.
