About Marfan Syndrome

Marfan syndrome is a condition that affects the body’s connective tissue. It is an inherited condition which can affect all sections of the population.

Because there is connective tissue throughout the body, Marfan syndrome can affect many of the body’s systems, including:

  • the skeleton
  • the eyes
  • the nervous system
  • the skin and lungs.

It can also affect the heart and blood vessels. It can therefore have potentially life-threatening consequences, notably aortic aneurysms and dissections. It is these conditions that the ExoVasc® aims to address.
