Abstract

Aortic interventions in patients with underlying connective tissues disorders present a unique challenge. The inevitable degeneration of the native aorta can lead to the need for multiple staged interventions with significant risk of complications associated with reoperative aortic procedures. We present a challenging case of progressive aortic degeneration in a patient with Marfan syndrome treated with multi-staged open surgical and endovascular procedures.
