Conditions and Factors Associated With Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (from a National Population-Based Cohort Study).

Am J Cardiol 2018 Oct 30. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

Brigham and Women's Hospital Heart & Vascular Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts. Electronic address:

The pathophysiology of spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is heterogeneous, associated with systemic arteriopathies and inflammatory diseases, and often compounded by environmental precipitants, genetics, or stressors. However, the frequency of these associated conditions with SCAD on a population level remains unknown. Therefore, the objective of this analysis was to evaluate heterogeneous phenotypes of SCAD in the United States using data from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample collected from January 1, 2004, to September 31, 2015.

Case reports of coronary fibromuscular dysplasia and spontaneous coronary artery dissections.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2018 Nov 23. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Division of Cardiology, Vancouver General Hospital, University of British Columbia, Canada.

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an important cause of acute coronary syndrome especially in women. The most common underlying predisposing cause of SCAD is fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD), a non-inflammatory arteriopathy that results in weakening of the affected arteries, and can cause dissection or aneurysm. Coronary FMD (CFMD) was described as rare, and was shown to cause SCAD in histopathological case reports. Read More

Spontaneous coronary artery dissections and fibromuscular dysplasia: Current insights on pathophysiology, sex and gender.

Int J Cardiol 2018 Nov 9. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Department of Cardiovascular Sciences, University of Leicester and NIHR Leicester Biomedical Research Centre, Glenfield Hospital, Leicester, UK.

Spontaneous coronary artery dissections (SCADs) are increasingly recognized as an important cause of acute coronary syndromes in predominantly women below 60 years of age. SCAD patients comprise a heterogeneous group, in which it is estimated that a quarter to one third have underlying fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD). Although the mutual relationship of SCAD and FMD is complex and only partly understood, there seems to be some overlap in genetic background and interaction with endogenous sex-steroids. Read More

Unique imaging findings in fibromuscular dysplasia of renal arteries: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Nov;97(46):e12815

Department of Nephrology, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, Sichuan, China.

Rationale: Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a rare vascular disorder that causes abnormal cell growth in arterial walls. The classic "string of beads" sign has been reported in many cases, whereas the appearance of tubular stenosis and distal tapering of renal arteries with multiple renal infarctions, as well as left kidney atrophy occurring in one patient, has not been precisely described.

Patient Concerns: A 19-year-old woman presented to us with a history of elevated blood pressure without any symptoms for the past 1 month. Read More

Vascular Genetics: Presentations, Testing, and Prognostics.

Curr Treat Options Cardiovasc Med 2018 Nov 13;20(12):103. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Adult Congenital and Cardiovascular Genetics Center, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, University of Minnesota Medical Center, Minneapolis, MN, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Numerous studies have begun to unravel the genetic basis of not only aortic disease but also other forms of commonly encountered vascular diseases. The goal of this review is to provide clinicians a reference to help identify and diagnose different types of vascular disease with a genetic underpinning.

Recent Findings: Ongoing studies have identified numerous genes involved in the TGF-β signaling pathway that are also associated with thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection, and it is possible to test for pathogenic variants in these genes in the clinical setting using commercially available genetic testing panels.

Current Understanding and Gaps in Research of Carotid Webs in Ischemic Strokes: A Review.

JAMA Neurol 2018 Nov 5. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

Department of Neurology, Emory University Hospital and Marcus Stroke and Neuroscience Center, Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta, Georgia.

Importance: A succession of research has explored the linkage between carotid webs (CaWs) and ischemic strokes. Imaging and pathologic analysis have defined CaW as an intimal variant of fibromuscular dysplasia, which appears as a shelflike lesion on the posterior aspect of the carotid bulb, more specifically at the origin of internal carotid artery. Reported findings of carotid webs in young patients with recurrent ischemic strokes without an otherwise determined cause have raised questions about the mechanism, natural history, and need for intervention.

Diagnosis and management of fibromuscular dysplasia and segmental arterial mediolysis in gastroenterology field: A mini-review.

World J Gastroenterol 2018 Aug;24(32):3637-3649

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Niigata University, Niigata 9518510, Japan.

The vascular diseases including aneurysm, occlusion, and thromboses in the mesenteric lesions could cause severe symptoms and appropriate diagnosis and treatment are essential for managing patients. With the development and improvement of imaging modalities, diagnostic frequency of these vascular diseases in abdominal lesions is increasing even with the small changes in the vasculatures. Among various vascular diseases, fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) and segmental arterial mediolysis (SAM) are noninflammatory, nonatherosclerotic arterial diseases which need to be diagnosed urgently because these diseases could affect various organs and be lethal if the appropriate management is not provided.

Visceral Fibromuscular Dysplasia: From asymptomatic disorder to emergency.

Eur J Clin Invest 2018 Nov 17;48(11):e13023. Epub 2018 Sep 17.

Division of Cardiology, Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc, Université Catholique de Louvain, Brussels, Belgium.

Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is an idiopathic, segmental, non-atherosclerotic and non-inflammatory disease of the musculature of arterial walls, leading to stenosis of small and medium-sized arteries, mostly involving renal and cervical arteries. As a result of better and more systematic screening, it appears that involvement of the splanchnic vascular bed is more frequent than originally assumed. We review epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical picture as well as diagnosis and treatment of visceral artery (VA) FMD. Read More

Renal artery fibromuscular dysplasia and its effect on the kidney.

Hypertens Res 2018 Sep 3;41(9):639-648. Epub 2018 Jul 3.

Department of Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Research Institute Maastricht (CARIM), Maastricht University Medical Centre (MUMC+), Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Fibromuscular dysplasia is a heterogeneous group of systemic, noninflammatory, and nonatherosclerotic diseases of the vascular wall. It is the second-most common abnormality of the renal artery. Although hypertension is the most common presenting symptom, other symptoms, such as pulsatile tinnitus, stroke, chest pain, or abdominal discomfort, may result from other affected vascular beds.

J Vasc Surg Cases Innov Tech 2018 Jun 12;4(2):76-79. Epub 2018 Apr 12.

Department of Vascular Surgery, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisc.

We report the case of a 44-year-old woman who developed an acute type B aortic dissection caused by an entry tear from an aneurysmal left common iliac artery that extended retrograde to the proximal descending thoracic aorta. She experienced refractory chest pain despite optimal medical management, thereby indicating repair. Endovascular aortic repair was subsequently performed. Read More

Association of Multifocal Fibromuscular Dysplasia in Elderly Patients With a More Benign Clinical Phenotype: Data From the US Registry for Fibromuscular Dysplasia.

JAMA Cardiol 2018 Aug;3(8):756-760

Vascular Medicine Section, Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio.

Importance: Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a nonatherosclerotic arterial disease that predominately affects women and is most commonly diagnosed in middle age. The natural history of FMD among patients diagnosed at an older age is not well understood.

Objective: To examine the differences in clinical presentation, arterial bed involvement, vascular events, and need for vascular procedures between younger and older patients with FMD. Read More

Differences in renal hemodynamics and renin secretion between patients with unifocal and multifocal fibromuscular dysplasia.

J Hypertens 2018 Aug;36(8):1729-1735

Department of Internal Medicine.

Objective: Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) can be classified in a multifocal and a unifocal subtype. As unifocal FMD generally leads to more severe hypertension at younger age, we hypothesized that renal hemodynamics are more disturbed in unifocal renal artery FMD as compared with multifocal FMD, leading to increased renin secretion.

Methods: We measured renal blood flow (Xenon washout method), renin secretion, and glomerular filtration rate per kidney in 101 patients with FMD (26 unifocal and 75 multifocal), all off medication and prior to balloon angioplasty. Read More

Genomics of Fibromuscular Dysplasia.

Int J Mol Sci 2018 May 21;19(5). Epub 2018 May 21.

Division of Cardiology, Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc, Université Catholique de Louvain, 1200 Brussels, Belgium.

Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD) is “an idiopathic, segmental, non-atherosclerotic and non-inflammatory disease of the musculature of arterial walls, leading to stenosis of small and medium-sized arteries” (Persu, et al; 2014). FMD can lead to hypertension, arterial dissections, subarachnoid haemorrhage, stroke or mesenteric ischemia. The pathophysiology of the disease remains elusive. Read More

Division of Nephrology, Department of Pediatrics, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Background: Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a non-inflammatory vascular disease that in children unlike in adults shows no sex predilection. FMD is often underdiagnosed, and its pathophysiology is unclear. Delayed diagnosis may lead to refractory hypertension and decreases the chance of successful treatment. Read More
