Thus, any disease process undermining the integrity of the elastic and muscular components of the media may trigger aortic dissection, such as cystic media necrosis. Focal cystic media necrosis is found in long-standing hypertension, with advanced age, and in several hereditary connective tissue disorders, most frequently in Marfan and Ehlers–Danlos syndromes, predisposing to acute aortic syndrome at young age. The peak incidence of acute aortic syndrome, however, is between ages 55 and 75, with a clear male preponderance.
