Some of the features of Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (VEDS) are common in the general population; however, treatment is sometimes more complex because of the underlying connective tissue disorder. In addition, there are important considerations because the condition affects multiple body systems.
These research papers and publications may help guide VEDS management. Have a specific question about caring for someone with VEDS? Get connected with an expert.
