Is aortic dissection always a result of this syndrome, or are there other causes?

Vascular EDS is a very rare cause of aortic dissection and many other conditions, including Marfan syndrome and familial aortic aneurysm are more common. The most common predisposing factors for aneurysm and dissection are hypertension and atherosclerosis. Answered by Peter Byers, MD and Melanie Pepin, MS, CGC
