Marfan Syndrome Clinic

Drs. Richard Devereux and Mary Roman

Marfan Syndrome and Aortopathy

The Division of Cardiology is a major referral center for patients and families with Marfan syndrome and related disorders. Our faculty includes internationally recognized experts in the field, including Drs. Richard B. Devereux and Mary J. Roman, who have evaluated and treated hundreds of patients with Marfan syndrome, familial aortic aneurysm, mitral valve prolapse, and related conditions. Our clinical research has provided phenotypic and echocardiographic characterization of these disorders. Our population of Marfan patients has allowed an update of the natural history of the condition in the era of improved diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment.

The Division offers expertise in the clinical diagnosis and medical management of patients with aortic aneurysms. Appropriate families, especially those with non-Marfan familial aortic aneurysm, may undergo additional testing to characterize underlying genetic abnormalities.

Our cardiologists collaborate with highly skilled cardiothoracic surgeons, allowing complete and expert cardiovascular care to be provided at a single institution.
