BACKGROUND: Acute mesenteric ischaemia is a condition with a grim prognosis on conservative treatment. Endovascular revascularisation is a promising approach for some of these patients. CASE REPORT: We present the case of a 44-year-old woman with a history of severe arterial hypertension, left leg claudication, and overlooked symptoms of chronic mesenteric ischaemia for one year, who was admitted for severe abdominal pain for one week. Computed tomographic angiography (CTA) showed acute mesenteric ischaemia by occlusion of the coeliac trunk and the superior mesenteric artery (SMA), without bowel perforation...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare entity. It has been described in various settings like pregnancy, collagen vascular diseases, cocaine abuse, heavy exercise, variant angina, eosinophilic arteritis, or fibro muscular dysplasia. It is also easy to miss a dissection during angiography, as the typical radiolucent lumen seen in coronary angiography may be absent in many cases. In this report, we describe the case of a 35-year-old female who presented with acute ST elevation myocardial infarction due to spontaneous coronary dissection...

BACKGROUND: Renovascular hypertension accounts for 51-52% of all cases of hypertension in the general population, but plays a major role in treatable causes for hypertension in the young. This entity consists of renal vascular atherosclerosis (90%), commonly seen among the elderly population, and renal fibro muscular dysplasia (FMD) (10%), predominantly seen in the young. The prevalence of clinically significant renal artery fibromuscular dysplasia is 0.4%. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case of treatable young hypertension in a 29 year old female, who was diagnosed with renovascular hypertension due to fibromuscular dysplasia of the left renal artery...

Kidney donation from hypertensive donors is now an accepted norm in live related kidney transplantation. The use of hypertensive donors with renal artery stenosis due to atherosclerosis and fibromuscular dysplasia is still debated. The prime concern is about the deleterious effect of hypertension on the donor and the risk of recurrence of such lesions in the solitary kidney. Even as the response of atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis to revascularisation is unpredictable, there is an improvement in blood pressure following revascularisation of kidneys with fibro-muscular dysplasia...

INTRODUCTION: We describe a rare case of small bowel infarction due to fibro muscular dysplasia in superior mesenteric artery in a young patient. CASE PRESENTATION: A 28 year old Asian female presented with acute onset left sided abdominal pain and watery diarrhea. She had a laparotomy due to further deterioration. It showed infracted small intestine, gall bladder and parts of liver. Abdomen had to be closed without any therapeutic procedure. She died in early post operative period...

Reno-vascular disease, along with diabetes mellitus, is the leading cause of dialysis in the elderly population, accounting for 50-66% of cases in patients above 65 years of age. Reno-vascular disease is a broad term, which includes renal artery stenosis, ischemic nephropathy, such as atherosclerotic obstruction, thrombo-embolic phenomenon, nephrosclerosis secondary to hypertension and acute occlusion of renal arteries (either bilateral or unilateral in singlekidney patients). Renal artery stenosis, defined as a 50% or greater occlusion of a renal artery (unilateral or bilateral), is an important cause of secondary hypertension...

Fibro-muscular dysplasia (FMD) is a rare but well documented disease with multiple arterial aneurysms. The patients, usually women, present with various clinical manifestations according to the specific arteries that are affected. Typical findings are aneurysmatic dilatations of medium-sized arteries. The renal and the internal carotid arteries are most frequently affected, but other anatomical sites might be affected too. The typical angiographic picture is that of a "string of beads". Common histological features are additionally described...

The vertebral artery (VA), whose embryogenesis is unique, different from that of any other vessel, is characterised by a great variety of malformations and anomalies. Some of the formers are truly pathological (that is symptomatic); the latter are just either anatomic or angiographic by chance findings. All of them should be kept in mind by the surgeon approaching the deep cervical and cranio-spinal regions, as well as by the interventional radiologist. Width and length anomalies of the VA, tortuosity and kinking, course anomalies, duplication and fenestration, persistence of primitive arteries, anomalies of collateral branches are discussed in the light of a literature review...

79 cases of reno-vascular hypertension were treated with percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTRA) during 1981-1994. Athrosclerosis as the etiology of renal artery lesions was noted in 14 cases (17.7%), arteritis in 57 (72.2%), and fibro-muscular dysplasia in 8 (10.1%). The success rate of PTRA was 94.8%. The morbidity rate was 3.8%. There was no mortality in this series. The cure-improvement rate after average follow-up of 44.8 months was 73.4%. It was 75.4% in the group of arteritis. We conclude that PTRA should be considered as the first choice for the treatment of renovascular hypertension, especially to the arteritis patients...

Extracranial vertebral arteriovenous fistulae of non traumatic origin are extremely rare. The authors report two cases of spontaneous vertebro-vertebral arteriovenous fistulae associated with fibromuscular dysplasia. They discuss the relation-ship between arteriovenous fistulae and fibro-muscular dysplasia, and the specific problems of treatment in these two cases.

The clinical angiographic and prognostic features of 13 patients with symptomatic stenosis of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) admitted between 1970 and 1981 have been reviewed. The etiology of the stenosis was probably atherosclerosis, except in 1 case due to fibro-muscular dysplasia, 1 with post-radiation angiopathy and 2 related to oral contraceptives. Two main clinical groups were delineated: 1) transitory and minor ischemic accidents always arising in the same arterial area; these occurred in older patients with multiples atheromatous lesions along the carotid artery...

Fibro-muscular dysplasia is the principal dysplasia of the internal carotid artery (ICA). It mainly affects women and is usually diagnosed at about the age of 50. The best known lesions are segmental medial defects. They are often associated with other local (aneurysm) or general (mainly renal) malformations. Congenital factors probably play a very important part in its genesis. Ischemic cerebrovascular accidents (transient or permanent), or cerebral haemorrhage are the usual modes of presentation. The diagnosis may be suspected on ultrasonic examination but can only be confirmed by arteriography...

Two patients had acute spontaneous dissection of both internal carotid arteries and of one or both vertebral arteries. One had angiographic signs suggestive of fibro-muscular dysplasia and both were on oral contraceptives. They were treated with high dose heparin and made a good clinical recovery. A digital intravenous angiography performed two to three months later showed a complete recanalization of arteries involved. These patients are similar to those reported as "idiopathic regressing arteriopathy" and "reversible angiopathy" which probably correspond to the same entity...

Concerning 100 intravenous digital subtraction angiographies (IV DSA) performed for the study of arterial hypertension, the results are discussed according to two different achievements: diagnostic and economic. One hundred patients have been examined after the intravenous (IV) injection of contrast material, seventy times in peripheral and thirty times in central venous system. Out of 94 examinations that could be interpreted, 10 revealed stenosis of renal arteries higher than 50 per cent, one revealed fibromuscular dysplasia...
