Renal fibromuskulær dysplasi og hypertensjon.

[Article in Norwegian]

Abstract

Fibromuscular dysplasia affects the muscles of small and medium-sized arteries. The aetiology of the condition is unknown; it is most frequently seen in middle-aged women, but can affect both sexes at any age. Hypertension is the most common clinical manifestation when the renal arteries are affected. The diagnosis is made based on clinical suspicion and specific angiographic findings. The treatment is aimed at normalisation of blood pressure with the aid of drugs or through revacularisation.
