Ehlers-Danlos syndrome

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a group of heritable disorders associated with a defect in collagen formation leading to skin fragility and hyperelasticity of skin, hypermobility of joints and poor wound healing with scarring. Surgical patients with EDS have suboptimal wound healing and multiple complications following surgery secondary to defects in collagen metabolism.
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) has an incidence of approximately 1 in 5000 births.
