Wierzba et al., "A new sporadic case of early-onset Loeys-Dietz syndrome due to the recurrent mutation p.R528C in the TGFBR2 gene substantiates interindividual clinical variability," Journal of Applied Genetics, vol.
Excess TGF-[beta] signalling has also been shown to play a role in other aortic aneurysm syndromes, including Loeys-Dietz syndrome [13,17].
The importance of TGF-[beta] signaling in maintaining vascular integrity was confirmed by the identification of mutations in the TGF-[beta] receptor genes 1 and 2 (TGFBR1 and TGFBR2), which cause Loeys-Dietz syndrome [53].
In patients with Marfan syndrome, surgery is usually performed when the ascending aorta exceeds 5 cm, and repair is undertaken in patients with Loeys-Dietz syndrome when the ascending aorta exceeds 4.5 cm.
Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) is an autosomal dominant inherited disorder of connective tissue that has been recently introduced as an important cause of familial aortic aneurysm.
Because Loeys-Dietz syndrome affects the heart, patients need a large number of prescriptions.
These syndromes are the connective tissue disorders vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) and Loeys-Dietz Syndrome (LDS), which are named after Harry Dietz, M.D.
INTRODUCTION: Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) is an autosomally inherited genetic disorder that affects the connective tissues of the body.
(3) Many systemic connective tissue disorders (Marfan's syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos, Loeys-Dietz syndromes, and systemic lupus erythematosus), autoimmune disease (rheumatoid arthritis, polyarteritis nodosa, Crohn's disease) have all been associated with SCAD.
It has been associated with multiple connective tissue disorders including Marfan syndrome, Ehler-Danlos syndrome, fibromuscular dysplasia, Loeys-Dietz syndromes, and systemic lupus erythematosus.
It was found that mutations in the genes that lead to abnormal TGF-beta signaling are also keys to Marfan and Loeys-Dietz syndromes, genetic conditions marked by blood vessel laxity and dangerous stretching of the aorta, the body's largest blood vessel.
