Marfan Syndrome is a hereditary disorder of connective tissue which primarily affects the eyes, skeleton, blood vessels, and various structures of the heart. Since 1943, when the cardiovascular manifestations of Marfan Syndrome were first described, understanding of its nature, diagnostic tools, and surgical treatment have been remarkably improved. Although the specific surgical procedures have reached an advanced standard and general acceptance, many questions remain unanswered and have given rise to ongoing controversy. Cardiovascular Aspects of Marfan Syndrome presents the advances in understanding the cause and pathogenesis of Marfan Syndrome and its current specific surgical therapy.
