Marfan syndrome and other connective tissue disorders encompass a group of genetic conditions that affect the body's connective tissues, including the heart's major blood vessel, the aorta. Individuals with Marfan syndrome or related disorders often face an increased risk of aortic complications, such as aortic aneurysms or dissections, due to the weakness in the structural integrity of the aortic wall.
The New Brunswick Aorta Centre, specializes in the comprehensive management and treatment of individuals with Marfan syndrome and related connective tissue disorders. Our clinic boasts a team of experienced specialists well-versed in the nuances of these conditions, offering tailored care to address the unique needs of each patient.
Diagnosing and managing Marfan syndrome and similar disorders requires a multidisciplinary approach. Our clinic emphasizes thorough evaluations, including genetic testing, imaging studies, and comprehensive assessments, to accurately diagnose and assess the extent of aortic involvement in these conditions.
Treatment strategies are designed to mitigate the risks associated with aortic complications in individuals with Marfan syndrome and related disorders. This often involves close monitoring, lifestyle modifications, and sometimes surgical interventions or medications aimed at controlling blood pressure and reducing stress on the aorta.
At the New Brunswick Aorta Clinic, we recognize the importance of ongoing support and education for individuals and families affected by Marfan syndrome and related connective tissue disorders. We provide comprehensive information, guidance on self-care, and support networks to empower patients in managing their condition and making informed decisions about their health.
