  • Marfan Syndrome Type 2

    ectasia Additionally, genetic testing for Marfan syndrome can be carried out, although it is difficult because the identified gene can mutate in many different ways.[news-medical.net] ectasia Respiratory: Sleep apnea Dural ectasia is a widening or ballooning of the dural sac surrounding the spinal cord usually at the lumbosacral level.[slideplayer.com] Dural ectasia, or enlargement of the dural sac, usually in the lumbar region, may lead to bone erosion and nerve entrapment, both of which can cause significant pain.[clinicaladvisor.com]
