BACKGROUND Ectatic aortopathy and arterial abnormalities cause excess morbidity and mortality in Turner syndrome, where a state of vasculopathy seemingly extends into the major head and neck branch arteries. OBJECTIVE We investigated the prevalence of abnormalities of the major intrathoracic arteries, their interaction with arterial dimensions, and their association with karyotype. DESIGN Magnetic resonance imaging scans determined the arterial abnormalities as well as head and neck branch… CONTINUE READING
