A predisposing weakness of the vessel wall has been assumed in patients with spontaneous cervical artery dissections (sCAD). Skin biopsies from many patients with sCAD show mild connective tissue alterations. However, their assessment depends on an invasive and highly specialized technique. Clinical signs of connective tissue disease are absent in the majority of CAD patients. In this review we document that only very few CAD patients are affected by known inherited connective tissue disorders… Expand
Markers of Connective Tissue Dysplasia in Cervical Artery Dissection and Its Predisposing Factors
TLDR
The presence of the 4 main and 2 additional diagnostic criteria of CTD has a high predictive value of CeAD and can be used as its diagnostic and prognostic criterion. Expand
NOTCH 1 Mutation in a Patient with Spontaneous and Recurrent Dissections of Extracranial Arteries
TLDR
The case of a 44-year-old female with recurrent dissections of the vertebral and carotid arteries associated with a heterozygous mutation p.Pro2122Leu in the NOTCH 1 gene is reported. Expand
Genetics of Cervical Artery Dissection
TLDR
Genetic association studies have been limited by small sample size, due to the low incidence of the disease, and by the use of a candidate gene approach, with limited exploration of genetic variation in a small number of genes that were chosen based on a priori hypotheses. Expand
Spontaneous Cervical Artery Dissection in Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
TLDR
Cervical artery lesions are frequent and mostly asymptomatic in patients with vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, but transient ischemic attack or stroke seem rare. Expand
Familial occurrence and heritable connective tissue disorders in cervical artery dissection
TLDR
In this largest series of patients with CeAD to date, family history of symptomatic CeAD was rare and inherited connective tissue disorders seemed exceptional, supporting the notion that CeAD is a multifactorial disease in the vast majority of cases. Expand
[Factors predisposing to cervical artery dissection].
TLDR
Better understanding of the underlying pathophysiology and the natural history of the disease through large prospective multicentre cohorts could also be helpful to improve therapeutic and preventive strategies. Expand
Cervical artery dissection expands the cardiovascular phenotype in FBN1‐related Weill–Marchesani syndrome
TLDR
A three generation family with FBN1‐related WMS whose cardiovascular manifestations include TAA and cervical artery dissection is described, thus expanding the cardiovascular phenotype of WMS. Expand
Cervical-artery dissections: predisposing factors, diagnosis, and outcome
TLDR
Although the functional outcome of CAD is good in most patients, socioprofessional effects can be important, and incidence of the disorder in the general population is underestimated, further research is warranted to improve the understanding of the underlying pathophysiology. Expand
Cervical Carotid Artery Dissection: Current Review of Diagnosis and Treatment
TLDR
With the use of noninvasive imaging, including magnetic resonance and computed tomography angiography, the diagnosis of carotid dissection has increased in frequency and treatment options include thrombolysis, antiplatelet or anticoagulation therapy, endovascular or surgical interventions. Expand
Arteriopathy of Unknown Etiology: Pathologic, Radiologic, and Cytogenetic Investigations
TLDR
This is the first report of this unusual pattern of presentation for idiopathic vasculopathy causing multiple dissections and aneurysms in a young patient and the literature was reviewed for a better understanding of pathologic, radiologic, and cytogenetic investigations of arteriopathy of unknown cause.

TLDR
The genetic association studies tested the association between sCAD and candidate genes that were selected a priori on pathophysiological arguments, in particular genes playing a role in the extracellular matrix, endothelial function, or inflammatory processes were negative. Expand
