BACKGROUND Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is the second most common cause of renovascular hypertension. Nonetheless, knowledge on the renal microvasculature and renin-angiotensin system (RAS) activity in kidneys with FMD is scarce. Given the fairly good results of revascularization, we hypothesized that the renal microvasculature and RAS are relatively spared in kidneys with FMD. METHOD In 58 hypertensive patients with multifocal renal artery FMD (off medication) and 116 matched controls with… CONTINUE READING
