Question:

Which of these is not a cause of isolated SMA dissection?
1. Atherosclerosis
2. Fibromuscular dysplasia
3. Connective tissue disorders
4. Endovascular interventions
5. All of the above are causes





Answer:

The correct answer for the question "Which of these is not a cause of isolated SMA dissection?" is:

5. All of the above are causes



Explanation

All of the above are causes

(Causes of isolated SMA dissections include atherosclerosis, fibromuscular dysplasia, mycotic infection, trauma, connective tissue disorders, vasculitidis like Giant cell arteritis, Takayasu arteritis, Polyarterteritis nodosa and iatrogenic induced dissections due to endovascular interventions)

Abstract
Two cases of isolated superior mesenteric artery dissection diagnosed by contrast enhanced 64 slice CT are reported. In both, the dissection was seen extending along the entire length of the artery with one of them showing partially thrombosed false lumen. One case was associated with dissection of left renal artery with consequent renal infarcts. Although superior mesenteric artery dissection is a rare phenomenon, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of abdominal angina.
