Abstract

Marfan's syndrome is an inherited disorder of connective tissue, in which the most pronounced abnormalities occur in the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and ocular systems. Aortic dilatation and dissection are the major causes of morbidity and mortality. Recent advances in surgical techniques and earlier intervention have reduced postoperative mortality and morbidity.
