Li W, Cohen W, Combs P, et al. Aortic root aneurysm repair in a neonate with Loeys-Dietz syndrome. Cardiol Young. 2021;31(5):848-850. doi:10.1017/S1047951120004886
Loeys-Dietz syndrome is a connective tissue disorder known to cause aggressive aortopathy in paediatric patients, but it is extremely rare for cardiovascular events to present during infancy. We report the first successful aortic repair in a neonate with LDS presenting in extremis with an early onset, massive aortic aneurysm.
