Fibromuscular dysplasia is a blood vessel disease that has been reported in almost every part of the body. It primarily affects women 15-50 years old and can cause high blood pressure, kidney disease and other blood vessel problems. The purpose of this study is to evaluate blood vessel function in patients with fibromuscular dysplasia and to determine whether there are any changes in vascular function as compared to healthy age, gender and ethnic origin matched controls.
