Consultation and assessment

Unfortunately, ehlers-danlos syndrome has no cure. A multidimensional approach may be required to manage various problems of this complex syndrome. The aim of the treatment is to prevent physical injuries, protect joints and provide supportive care. Orthotic treatment, as well as wheel chairs or braces may be needed in some sufferers. The supportive management includes both physical therapy along with preventive care. The individual may be prescribed vitamin C supplements which have shown to reduce the chances of bruising in some individuals. The heart defects need to be evaluated and surgical management considered, if needed. Individuals afflicted with ehlers-danlos syndrome require special care during any surgical procedure, to prevent further injury to fragile tissues and excessive blood loss.

The prognosis of this genetic disorder is quite poor and patients may require lifelong supportive care.
