Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD)

In fibromuscular dysplasia, the muscle and fibrous tissues in your arteries thicken, causing the arteries to narrow. This reduces blood flow to your organs, leading displasai organ damage. Fibromuscular dysplasia of the artery to the kidney renal artery is shown here, with a “string of pearls” appearance.

Fibromuscular dysplasia is a condition that causes narrowing stenosis and enlargement aneurysm of the medium-sized arteries in your body.

Reduced blood flow from narrowed arteries to the organs can affect the function of the organs. Fibromuscular dysplasia appears most commonly in the arteries leading to the kidneys. Fibromuscular dysplasia can also affect the arteries leading to your brain, heart, abdomen, arms and legs. Fibromuscular dysplasia can cause a number of complications, such as high blood pressure or fibromusculae of the artery arterial dissectionif left untreated.

Arterial dissection, or spontaneous coronary artery dissection SCADcan limit blood flow to the organ supplied by the injured artery. Some people who have fibromuscular dysplasia don’t have any symptoms.

You could have some signs or symptoms of the disease, depending on what artery is affected by fibromuscular dysplasia. Fibromuscular dysplasia can cause tears in the walls of your coronary arteries, also called arterial dissection or spontaneous coronary artery dissection SCAD.


Signs and symptoms of SCAD may include:. If you have fibromuscular dysplasia and have any sudden changes in your vision, ability to speak, or new weakness in your fibrojuscular or legs, seek medical attention immediately. If you have any of the other signs or symptoms listed and are concerned about your risk of fibromuscular dysplasia, see your doctor.

Genetics may play a role in the development of fibromuscular dysplasia. But, if another family member has fibromuscular dysplasia, you or a relative may never get fibromuscular dysplasia, or you might get the condition in a different artery or have a milder case displasix a more severe case than your family member’s fibromuscular dysplasia.

In addition, not everyone who has fibromuscular dysplasia has a relative with the disease. Fibromuscular dysplasia could be caused by inadequate oxygen to the arteries that supply your blood vessel walls with blood, which causes the vessels to form abnormally. It could also be caused if the position of your arteries in your body is abnormal, or if a medication or tobacco causes your arteries to develop abnormally.


Once fibrouscular artery develops abnormally, a cluster of cells builds in the artery wall, narrowing it and reducing blood flow.

Although the cause of fibromuscular dysplasia is unknown, there are several factors that appear to increase the risk of developing the disorder, including:. Generally, fibromuscular dysplasia isn’t preventable.

However, if you smoke, quitting smoking may reduce your likelihood of developing fibromuscular dysplasia. Fibromuscular dysplasia care at Mayo Clinic.
