For surgical treatment of patients with FMD (fibromuscular dysplasia) of the renal arteries, an optimal angiographic study is necessary. Preferably, aortography as well as selective magnification renal angiography should be carried out. Oblique views may be necessary to demonstrate the peripheral extension into segmental branches, collateral circulation, the presence of aneurysms, and/or associated complications as AV fistulas, infarctions, intramural hematomas and pseudoaneurysms.
