How should we define appropriate patients for percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty treatment?

Hypertens Res 2020 Jun 22. Epub 2020 Jun 22.

Department of Nephrology and Hypertension, Dokkyo Medical University, Mibu, Tochigi, Japan.

Renovascular hypertension (RVH) is one of the most common causes of secondary hypertension and can result in resistant hypertension. RVH is associated with an increased risk for progressive decline in renal function, cardiac destabilization syndromes including "flash" pulmonary edema, recurrent congestive heart failure, and cerebrocardiovascular disease. The most common cause of renal artery stenosis (RAS) is atherosclerotic lesions, followed by fibromuscular dysplasia. Read More

Kidney enlargement effect of angioplasty for nonatherosclerotic renovascular disease: reversibility of ischemic kidney.

Hypertens Res 2020 May 22. Epub 2020 May 22.

Division of Nephrology, Endocrinology, and Vascular Medicine, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai, Japan.

Renal artery stenosis causes kidney ischemia, reducing the size of the affected kidney, which eventually results in atrophy. Although renal atrophy is considered irreversible, resolution of the ischemia occasionally restores kidney size when the cause is renal artery stenosis. Angioplasty is effective in patients with nonatherosclerotic renovascular diseases (non-ARVDs). Read More

Screening CT angiography in patients with suspected fibromuscular dysplasia: improved patient care with single-session skull vertex to pelvis coverage.

Cardiovasc Diagn Ther 2020 Apr;10(2):201-207

Imaging Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Background: Imaging plays a key role in the workup of patients with clinically suspected fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD), and research has highlighted the potential of computed tomography angiography (CTA) in screening for thoracic, abdominal, and pelvic arterial abnormalities in these patients. We sought to evaluate imaging findings from patients with suspected or diagnosed FMD who underwent screening CTA at our institution with a novel single-acquisition protocol that offers increased anatomic coverage, with images obtained from the skull vertex to the pelvis.

Methods: Images from 80 consecutive patients scanned with the novel single-session CTA protocol covering the skull vertex to the pelvis were compared with images from 20 additional consecutive patients who underwent CTA for the head and neck separate from CTA of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis.

Am J Surg Pathol 2020 Apr;44(4):509-515

Departments of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine.

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is usually seen in premature infants who require mechanical ventilation and oxygen therapy for acute respiratory distress. Although most patients wean from oxygen therapy by the ages of 2 to 3, rehospitalization for respiratory problems is common in these patients in adulthood. There have been few studies that document the long-term outcomes of BPD survivors and information about the pulmonary function and radiographic findings of adult BPD are limited. Read More

Coronary artery disease and acute coronary syndrome in women.

Heart 2020 Apr 13;106(7):487-492. Epub 2020 Jan 13.

U.O. Emodinamica e Cardiologia Invasiva, Istituto Clinico Humanitas, Milano, Italy.

There are important dissimilarities in clinical presentation, aggregation of comorbidities, cardiovascular risk factors and the quality of delivery of medical care among men and women with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Compared with men, despite the well-known older age and more pronounced frailty, women with ACS present later from symptom onset and are at high bleeding risk after invasive procedures. In addition, autoimmune/inflammatory disease, fibromuscular dysplasia, polycystic ovary, early menopause and history of pre-eclampsia are risk factors preceding ACS among younger women. Read More

Clinical Characteristics and Long-Term Outcomes of Midaortic Syndrome.

Ann Vasc Surg 2020 Jul 7;66:318-325. Epub 2020 Jan 7.

Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, University of Texas Health Science Center Houston, McGovern Medical School, Memorial Hermann Hospital - Heart and Vascular Institute, Houston, TX. Electronic address:

Background: Midaortic syndrome (MAS) is a rare congenital or acquired condition marked by segmental or diffuse stenosis of the distal thoracic and/or abdominal aorta and its branches. The optimal approach to medical or interventional management of MAS and long-term outcomes in adults are not well defined. We reviewed MAS cases to characterize the natural history of aortic disease, identify prognostic factors, and evaluate the durability of invasive interventions. Read More

Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection in a Patient with a Family History of Fatal Ascending Aortic Dissection: Case Report and Discussion of Diseases Causing Both Presentations.

Case Rep Cardiol 2019 25;2019:7218480. Epub 2019 Nov 25.

Cardiology Department, Queen Elizabeth Queen Mother Hospital, St Peter's Rd, Margate CT9 4AN, UK.

Background: Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare cause of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Aortic dissection and SCAD share common aetiologies such as a fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD), Marfan, Ehlers Danlos, and more rarely systemic lupus erythematosus and Loeys-Dietz; however, SCAD has never been known to have a familial association with aortic dissection.

Case Summary: This case report describes a 48-year-old woman suffering from SCAD who had a mother who died from ascending aortic dissection in her 50s. Read More

Moyamoya disease associated with fibromuscular dysplasia of intrapulmonary bronchial arteries-a case report.

Cardiovasc Pathol 2020 Mar - Apr;45:107182. Epub 2019 Nov 23.

Department of Neurosurgery, Charles University Faculty of Medicine and Faculty Hospital, Hradec Králové, Czech Republic.

A case is reported of a 40-year-old woman clinically diagnosed as moyamoya disease with associated fibromuscular dysplasia of intrapulmonary bronchial arteries incidentally revealed during autoptic examination. Moyamoya disease represents an idiopathic noninflammatory and nonatherosclerotic arterio-occlusive process of intracranial arteries. Prolonged brain ischemia leads to formation of tiny and fragile collaterals. Read More

Intravascular Ultrasound in Carotid Web.

J Neurointerv Surg 2020 May 4;12(5):531-534. Epub 2019 Dec 4.

Neurology, Neurosurgery and Radiology, Emory University School of Medicine/Marcus Stroke and Neuroscience Center - Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Background: Carotid web (CaW) is a shelf-like linear filling defect in the posterior aspect of the internal carotid bulb, representing an intimal variant of fibromuscular dysplasia. The diagnosis of CaW is traditionally restricted to digital subtraction angiography (DSA), CT/MR angiography (CTA/MRA), and Duplex ultrasonography. In this series of patients with acute ischemic stroke, we evaluated the potential utility of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in further characterizing suspected CaWs. Read More

Cryptogenic Stroke: Diagnostic Workup and Management.

Curr Treat Options Cardiovasc Med 2019 Dec 3;21(11):77. Epub 2019 Dec 3.

Department of Neurology, New York University School of Medicine, New York City, NY, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Cryptogenic stroke describes a subset of ischemic stroke for which no cause can be found despite a structured investigation. There are a number of putative mechanisms of cryptogenic ischemic stroke including a covert structural cardiac lesion, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, hypercoagulable state or undiagnosed malignancy. Because many of these proposed mechanisms are embolic - and based on studies of thrombus history showing commonalities between thrombus composition between cardioembolic and cryptogenic strokes - the concept of embolic stroke of undetermined source (ESUS) (Hart et al.
