Orthopaedic management of the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes.

Abstract

The role of orthopedic surgery in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is inherently controversial, opaque to most patients and many medical providers, and difficult to discern from available medical literature. Non-operative treatment is preferable, but for carefully selected patients, specific joint stabilization and nerve decompression procedures can provide symptomatic relief when conservative measures fail.
