Abstract

Pregnancy in women with the Marfan syndrome (MFS) is associated with the potential for a catastrophic and even fatal acute aortic dissection and the risk of having a child who will inherit the syndrome. The approach to pregnancy in patients with MFS is therefore challenging and deserves special considerations. This article presents an extensive review of available clinical information and provides recommendations for the management of patients with MFS during pregnancy.
