Visceroptosis of the bowel in the hypermobility type of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome: presentation of a rare manifestation and review of the literature. Reinstein E, Pimentel M, Pariani M, Nemec S, Sokol T, Rimoin DL Eur J Med Genet 2012 Oct;55(10):548-51 Visceroptosis is described in several heritable connective tissue disorders, including the hypermobility type of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (hEDS), a.k.a. joint hypermobility syndrome (JHS). Clinical features of hEDS comprise joint hypermobility, mild skin hyperextensibility, joint instability complications, chronic joint/limb pain, and positive family history Visceroptosis of the bowel has been described in two patients with hEDS [Reinstein et al., 2012 ]. This refers to the downward displacement of abdominal organs below their natural position. It is rare and its aetiology is unknown 6 Symptoms of Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes. Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes are complex and multisystem diseases with clinical symptoms that vary depending on the type of collagen altered. And although Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes mostly affect the joints and skin, the severity of the defects in the connective tissues range from mild discomfort to life-threatening Dordoni C, Ritelli M, Venturini M, Chiarelli N, Pezzani L, Vascellaro A, et al.

Until recently, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) was a name that elicited little relevance or urgency in the pain world. Little did I realize that I had been treating more cases of EDS in patients who had been referred to my practice initially for more commonly recognized diagnoses such as fibromyalgia, spine degeneration, and resistant migraine Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is the name given to a group of more than 10 different inherited disorders; all involve a genetic defect in collagen and connective-tissue synthesis and structure. Ehlers-Danlos syndrome can affect the skin, joints, and blood vessels .k.a. joint hypermobility syndrome (JHS). Clinical features of hEDS comprise joint hypermobility, mild skin hyperextensibility, joint instability complications, chronic joint/limb pain, and positive. Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) are a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of hereditary disorders characterized by varying degrees of soft connective tissue fragility, affecting mainly the skin, ligaments, blood vessels, and internal organs. This group consists of gastric, duodenal, and colonic diverticula, visceroptosis, gastric.
Ehlers Danlos Syndromes are not rare: I estimate there are at least 20,000 people with these conditions in North Carolina.3 So there is a quite reprehensible lack of interest this could produce visceroptosis, which is a displacement of a whole organ (or more than one). So for instance, if the connective tissues supporting the stomach. Did Elvis have EDS? - Practical Pain Management - Forest Tennant, MD, DrPH - April 2017 From Letters to the Editor: After I finished reading the article about Elvis Presley's medical history by Forest Tennant, MD, DrPH,1 I wondered if he might have had Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS)?.

The Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) is the name given to a group of non-inflammatory hereditary conditions, which are all disorders of the connective tissue. Connective tissue is a supporting structure in our body and is made up of a number of proteins including collagen, which is the protein most often thought to be involved in EDS Current evidence suggests that an association exists between non-inflammatory hereditary disorders of connective tissue such as the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) and gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. Patients with EDS can present with both structural problems such as hiatus hernias, visceroptosis, rectoceles, and rectal prolapse as well as.

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is an inherited connective tissue disorder with a huge variety of signs and symptoms. Gastrointestinal manifestations may be present in up to 50% of patients. We here report bariatric surgery in a patient with EDS, focusing on management challenges, preoperative assessment and one-year outcome Background: There is an increasing recognition of patients with Ehlers Danlos Syndromes. The laxity of the ligaments and the weakness of the connective tissue has resulted in increasing number of patients requiring surgical intervention. Ehlers Danlos Syndromes are not about hypermobile joints only, they are associated with multiple co-existing conditions such as Chiari malformation, Tethered. Extreme flexibility and hyper-mobile joints. Thin fragile skin that bruises easily. Digestive problems like constipation and heartburn. While these unpleasant symptoms might seem unrelated, they all have something in common - they can all be caused by a disorder known as Ehler's-Danlos Syndrome. And recent research is uncovering just how this perplexing disorder can cause another.

Background The Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) are rare connective tissue disorders consisting of 13 subtypes with overlapping features including joint hypermobility, skin and generalized connective tissue fragility. Classical EDS (cEDS) is principally caused by heterozygous COL5A1 or COL5A2 variants and rarely by the COL1A1 p.(Arg312Cys) substitution. Current major criteria are (1) skin. Purpose of Review To summarize current evidence on the links between joint hypermobility (JH) and Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS), with pain and reduced bone mass; to illustrate an updated approach to JH and EDS. Recent Findings In 2017, a novel classification for EDS and JH has been published. Increasing data demonstrate that pain is a major disability determinator in JH and EDS. Recent. There have been 300 reported cases of the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome all over the world (Beighton, 1970). The rarity of this condition is reflected in the small number of 5 cases in the paediatric age-group seen in South Australia in the last decade, equivalent to 1:40,000 live births. In reviewing the gastrointestinal complications, Beighton et al. ( 1969) describe 4 children with rectal prolapse Hypermotility type Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (hEDS): Cerebroptosis-Chiari, tethered cord, chronic cervical instability (CCI), cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak, visceroptosis, median arcuate ligament syndrome (MALS The periodontitis type of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS type VIII) is distinguished from other subtypes of EDS by severe periodontitis leading to premature loss of permanent teeth. A limited number of patients and pedigrees with this condition have been described. We report a four‐generation EDS VIII kindred with a phenotype of joint hypermobility, normal scar formation but eventual scar.
Visceroptosis. The displacement of many internal organs is called Visceroptosis, whereas the displacement of the stomach only is called gastroptosis, and the movability of the kidneys is called mobile kidneys or nephroptosis. Poor posture and tight corsets are not generally recognised nowadays as a cause, but Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is. Sara Grace is the epitome of OTT. She calls herself a professional patient along with the often used OTT-labels of rare, vulnerable, young, sick, and invisible (among others). She seems to have started out claiming Lyme disease, EDS, and POTS, and eventually made her way to the Mayo Clinic (the same one Aubrey went to.
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, hypermobility type, constituting a phenotypic continuum with or, perhaps, corresponding to the joint hypermobility syndrome (JHS/EDS-HT), is likely the most common, though the least recognized, heritable connective tissue disorder. Known for decades as a hereditary condition with predominant rheumatologic manifestations, it is now emerging as a multisystemic disorder. Dr. Clair Francomano led a main session entitled What is new in EDS 2013. She reviewed the recent publications, which I will list here (a better list will be in her PowerPoint presentation--I was only able to write the gist of the titles before the slide was changed.
The second component of the core is the Joint Hyperlaxity (hypermobility) Syndrome, which could also be classified as Ehlers-Danlos type III among the hereditary disorders of the connective tissue. esophageal dyskinesia, sprains and dislocations, visceroptosis, prolapses, allergies, dyspareunia, and hypertrophic scars or keloids Joint hypermobility syndrome (JHS)--also known as Ehlers-Danlos type 3-hypermobile type (hEDS) (1)--is a poorly recognized connective tissue disorder characterized by increased joint laxity that may affect 10% to 25% of the general population. Visceroptosis, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux, hiatus hernia, chronic. Ehlers Danlos Syndrome is a generalized disorder of one element of connective tissue manifesting clinically by fragility and hyperelasticity of the skin and loose jointedness. It is a heritable disorder, the inheritance being usually autosomal dominant with low penetrance Ehlers-Danlos syndromes are a group of disorders which share common features including easy bruising, joint hypermobility (loose joints), skin that stretches easily (skin hyperelasticity or laxity), and weakness of tissues.; Ehlers-Danlos syndromes are inherited in the genes that are passed from parents to offspring.; Ehlers-Danlos syndromes symptoms and signs are joints that are more flexible.

Hyperkyphosis and Ptosis, Oh My! Kyphosis is the natural curve of the thoracic spine. The abnormal excessive anterior curvature of the thoracic spine (think rounded upper back) is referred to hyperkyphosis, acquired or excessive kyphosis. Excessive kyphosis can lead to osteoporosis, headaches, shoulder impingement, neck pain, impaired breathing. The name, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, was coined in 1936.
