Fibromuscular Dysplasia: Patient Volume

2016 – 2020

Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a vascular condition in which there is abnormal cell growth in the walls of medium and large arteries. This can cause the arteries to become narrowed (stenosis) and can also lead to aneurysm and dissection. Cleveland Clinic’s FMD program is a high volume multidisciplinary clinic dedicated to caring for and educating patients with FMD. The team conducts research to better understand the condition and treatment options.

The volume of the visits, for patients being treated for FMD, remained overall stable despite of the negative effects of COVID pandemic . A total of 965 patients were seen for FMD in 2020.
