Patient 1 remained genetically undiagnosed despite multiple structural, biochemical and genetic investigations. He made a good recovery following surgery for popliteal and left axillary artery aneurysms. Patient 2 was diagnosed with vascular type Ehlers–Danlos syndrome, associated with a high degree of tissue and blood vessel fragility, and is being managed conservatively....

The graft used in this patient was from a ne...
