Abstract

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) refers to a group of genetic disorders involving the connective tissues. Type IV EDS impairs type III collagen that is responsible for vessel integrity. Patients with type IV EDS are susceptible to vascular and visceral complications, including aortic aneurysms, pseudoaneurysms, dissections, and spontaneous rupture of internal organs. Treating aneurysms with open surgery versus endovascular techniques each carry a unique risk-to-benefit ratio that must be applied to each individual carefully. We present a patient with type IV EDS who presented with a rapidly growing inferior mesenteric artery aneurysm. The patient was treated with a percutaneous endovascular technique using coils and n-butyl-cyanoacrylate glue.
