Outcome following renal autotransplantation in renal artery stenosis.

Urol Ann 2019 Jan-Mar;11(1):46-52

Department of Urology, Seth GS Medical College and KEM Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Introduction: With significant advances in the area of interventional radiology, angioplasty and stenting have become preferred first-line treatment in patients with significant renal artery stenosis. However, not all patients have favorable anatomy to undergo minimally invasive treatments, and reconstruction of the renal artery is an option. In select cases, either improved renal function or maintenance of existing function and sometimes resolution of hypertension can follow surgical treatment. Read More

Spontaneous coronary artery dissections and associated predisposing factors: a narrative review.

Neth Heart J 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Cardiology, Radboud University Medical Centre, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) represents around 25% of cases of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) in women aged 40-65 years who have few or no traditional cardiovascular risk factors. It is assumed that the incidence is underestimated, as the angiographic appearance of SCAD may often mimic atherosclerosis. This review aims to examine SCAD by focusing on the associated predisposing factors and precipitating stressors in this heterogeneous patient population, as well as the best treatment approach and the prognosis.

Bilateral renal artery stenosis as a cause of refractory intradialytic hypertension in a patient with end stage renal disease.

BMC Nephrol 2019 Jan 14;20(1):19. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Section of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, Regina General Hospital, 1440, 14th Avenue, Regina, S4P 0W5, Canada.

Background: We report a 61-year-old female with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) secondary to polycystic kidney disease (PKD) complicated by intradialytic hypertension (IDH). Increased sympathetic drive leading to increased stroke volume and/or vasoconstriction with an inappropriate increase in peripheral vascular resistance (PVR) has been postulated to be the cause of IDH.

Case Presentation: Attempts to control her blood pressure by reducing her goal weight; increasing dialysis times/ frequency and decreasing her sodium concentrate in the dialysis fluid were unsuccessful. Read More

Association of the PHACTR1/EDN1 Genetic Locus With Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection.

J Am Coll Cardiol 2019 Jan;73(1):58-66

INSERM, Paris Cardiovascular Research Center, Paris, France; Faculty of Medicine, Paris-Descartes University, Sorbonne Paris Cité, Paris, France. Electronic address:

Background: Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an increasingly recognized cause of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) afflicting predominantly younger to middle-aged women. Observational studies have reported a high prevalence of extracoronary vascular anomalies, especially fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) and a low prevalence of coincidental cases of atherosclerosis. PHACTR1/EDN1 is a genetic risk locus for several vascular diseases, including FMD and coronary artery disease, with the putative causal noncoding variant at the rs9349379 locus acting as a potential enhancer for the endothelin-1 (EDN1) gene.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2019 Mar 23;93(4):631-634. 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

Multicenter Experience with Stenting for Symptomatic Carotid Web.

Interv Neurol 2018 Oct 11;7(6):413-418. Epub 2018 Jul 11.

Emory University/Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Background: A carotid web (CaW) is a shelf-like lesion in the posterior aspect of the internal carotid bulb and represents an intimal variant of fibromuscular dysplasia. CaW has been associated with recurrent strokes and conventionally treated with surgical excision. We report a multicenter experience of stenting in patients with symptomatic CaWs. Read More

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Caused by Aortic Fibromuscular Dysplasia: A Case Report.

Ann Vasc Dis 2018 Sep;11(3):365-368

Department of Surgery, Kurume University School of Medicine, Kurume, Fukuoka, Japan.

Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) mainly develops in medium-sized arteries, including renal, extracranial, and extremity arteries, but it rarely causes abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). A 69-year-old woman with AAA diagnosed on ultrasonography by a home doctor visited our hospital. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography revealed a saccular aneurysm of terminal abdominal aorta.

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.

A cause of recurrent strokes: carotid webs detected by CT angiogram.

BJR Case Rep 2018 9;4(1):20170066. Epub 2017 Nov 9.

Department of Stroke Medicine, Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.

Carotid webs are an uncommon cause of recurrent ischaemic strokes. They are considered a form of fibromuscular dysplasia, possibly developmental in origin, with non-inflammatory and non-atherosclerotic features and a characteristic appearance on CT angiography. They have been described as a thin intraluminal filling defect along the posterior wall of the carotid bulb in oblique sagittal reformats and a septum on axial CT angiography. Read More

A Morphometric Analysis for the Feasibility of Percutaneous Translacerum Access of the Internal Carotid Artery Based on Computed Tomography Angiography.

World Neurosurg 2019 Jan 12;121:e925-e930. Epub 2018 Oct 12.

Department of Neurosurgery, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center Shreveport, Shreveport, Louisiana, USA.

Background: The increasing frequency of elderly patients with severe tortuous anatomy, especially when combined with fibromuscular dysplasia, can make intracranial canalization severely difficult or impossible. Computed tomography angiography was used to determine the feasibility of accessing the internal carotid artery (ICA) via a percutaneous translacerum approach.

Methods: Twenty consecutive stroke activations with CT angiography were reconstructed in three-dimensional models to take measurements to assess if currently available technologies could safely provide access. Read More
