Cardiac Abnormalities in the Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

key information

source: British Heart Journal

year: 1969

authors: Beighton P


There have been several reports of cardiac abnormalities in patients with the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, but it is not certain whether these anomalies are part of the syndrome or whether they represent chance concomitants (McKusick, 1966).

In an investigation in Southern England, 100 patients with this syndrome have been examined. The results of this survey, from the cardiac point of view, are presented in this paper, and the features that were encountered are discussed with reference to previous reports.
