First Posted : October 3, 2014
Last Update Posted : November 20, 2017
The primary objectives of the study are
- to assess the contribution of alteration of each known gene on non-syndromic TAA.
- to map and identify unknown gene involved in the non-syndromic TAA.
|Condition or disease|
|Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm|
The secondary objectives of the study are
- to study the correlation of phenotype-genotype, in particular, to compare the aortic phenotype of non-syndromic TAA patients and TAA syndromic patients.
- to develop national standardized strategies of genetic diagnosis and of clinical management using genetic data.

- Impact of known mutations and research of new genes involved in non syndromic TAA [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
Research for mutations in known genes such as FBN1, TGFBR1, TGFBR2, ACTA2, or MYH11.
Research for new genes in families and in individuals TAA patients without known mutation.
