Seven patients with symptomatic fibromuscular dysplasia have had eight internal carotid arteries treated by operative balloon dilatation. This technique is described in detail and provides three distinct advantages over conventional graduated intraluminal dilatation--atraumatic passage of the catheter through the affected vessel with fluoroscopic guidance; precise dilatation of the involved segment of the internal carotid artery; and the application of a radial force against the arterial wall rather than a longitudinal shear force, thereby making intimal damage less likely. There were no treatment complications in this group of patients. This technique of balloon angioplasty is compared with the results of treatment in eight patients with fibromuscular dysplasia of the internal carotid artery, who had percutaneous transfemoral angioplasty. Long-term follow-up revealed the resolution of symptoms in all patients.
