Abstract

Four inherited disorders known to effect major arteries will be discussed, including Marfan syndrome (MS), Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) and nonsyndromic familial aortic dissection. Recent advances in understanding their pathophysiology are presented, and how this knowledge impacts on diagnosis, prevention and treatment is discussed.
