P rimary aldosteronism (PA) is the most frequent endocrine cause of secondary hypertension, affecting ≈10% of patients referred to specialized clinics. 1 It is characterized by autonomous aldosterone secretion, resulting in hypokalemia, sodium reabsorption, and fluid retention. In addition to these well-known effects, there is compelling evidence to suggest(More)
BACKGROUND Initially based on histology, the diagnosis of renal artery fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is now based mostly on angiographic appearance because arterial tissue samples are rarely available. This retrospective cross-sectional study aimed to assess the clinical relevance of a binary angiographic classification of FMD lesions (unifocal or(More)

UNLABELLED Identifying patients with Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD) at the international level will have considerable value for understanding the epidemiology, clinical manifestations and susceptible genes in this arterial disease, but also for identifying eligible patients in clinical trials or cohorts. We present a two-step methodology to create a general(More)
