Pregnancy Finally, pregnancy related aortic dissection is extremely rare, as long as the patient is not affected by connective tissue disease. The putative association of pregnancy and acute dissection may largely be an artifact of selective reporting. Pregnancy is a common condition, and aortic dissection may occur coincidentally only with the concomitant existence of other risk factors such as hypertension and MFS. Preliminary data from the International Registry of Acute Aortic Dissection (IRAD) show that even in female MFS, dissection also occurs outside the setting of pregnancy, further supporting a coincidental association with pregnancy.
