A Mount Sinai team has gained valuable insights into fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD), a disorder of the arteries that is typically diagnosed in otherwise healthy women at midlife and sometimes causes aneurysms or serious heart disease. The findings could open the door to new strategies for the diagnosis, treatment, and management of FMD, including a blood test that could lead to earlier diagnosis.
