Prognosis for Marfan syndrome:
While Marfan syndrome is a lifelong disorder, the outlook
has improved in recent years. Early diagnosis and advances in medical
technology have improved the quality of life for people with Marfan
syndrome and lengthened their lifespan. In addition, early
identification of risk factors (such as aortic dilation) allows doctors
to intervene and prevent or delay complications. Advances being made by
researchers provide hope for the future. With early diagnosis and
appropriate management, the life expectancy for someone with Marfan
syndrome is similar to that of the average person.
