UK and Ireland First Patient Information Day on Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD)
Fibromuscular Dysplasia- UK and Ireland 1st Patient information day
19.01.2019, Salford Royal Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD) is evolving from a rare disease of renal arteries accounting for a minority of cases of secondary hypertension in young women, to a ‘systemic’ vascular disease which can also affect cervico-cephalic, coronary, and iliac arteries. This patient information day will aim to explain what FMD is, challenge previous misconceptions about FMD and highlight the latest work being undertaken by registries and research.
Come and hear from expert international guest speakers such as Prof Alexandre Persu (lead for European FMD registry) and Prof David Adlam (UK expert in spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD)), as well as celebrity chef and FMD/ SCAD sufferer, Sally Bee. This day will be of interest to clinicians, patients and carers alike. Any further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or @FmdsUk
Patients with FMD in any arterial bed can be uploaded to FMD RADAR.
