Atherosclerosis is the MOST common cause of renal artery stenosis...with fibromuscular dysplasia being the SECOND most common cause (even though it is tempting to choose this option considering the patient's demographic).

xxabi  Is there a situation where you would pick fibromuscular dysplasia over atherosclerosis if given both options? Thanks for your help!
baconpies  Atherosclerosis affects PROXIMAL 1/3 of renal artery Fibromuscular dysplasia affects DISTAL 2/3 of renal artery
