Study title:

Fibromuscular Dysplasia and Arterial Abnormalities in Adults Presenting with Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

Description of study: The question this study hopes to answer is: Among adults who have had spontaneous coronary dissection, what is the relationship to other kinds of vascular diseases? We want to find out if patients who have had a spontaneous coronary artery dissection also have any other vascular diseases as well because if they do, this may have contributed to their coronary artery dissection.

Study title:

Fibromuscular Dysplasia International Registry

Description of study:

This study is being done to try to understand more about Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD).  FMD is a condition in which at least one of the arteries has an abnormal cluster of cells growing in the artery wall.  This cluster causes the artery to narrow, which can cause damage to the organs that receive blood through the narrowed artery.  FMD can cause a number of complications such as high blood pressure and aneurysms if left untreated.
