Managing VEDS requires a multifaceted approach, involving various treatment strategies and lifestyle modifications. This comprehensive guide on how to effectively manage Type 4 VEDS will explore all management approaches for those who need […]
Vascular EDS (VEDS) is one, if not the most challenging type of EDS. It is caused by mutations in the COL3A1 gene. (1) Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that affects the body’s connective tissues, primarily impacting blood vessels and internal organs. People with VEDS face unique challenges due to the fragility of […]
Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (VEDS) is a group of rare genetic disorders that affect the connective tissue in the body. The connective tissue is responsible for supporting and strengthening the body’s bones, organs, and other tissues.

Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (VEDS) is a rare genetic connective tissue disorder that affects the body’s blood vessels and organs, leading to a high risk of life-threatening complications. It is caused by mutations in the COL3A1 gene and is transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait (1). COL3A1 provides instructions for making type III collagen, a protein that gives structure and strength to blood vessels, skin, and other tissues.
