Although catastrophic vascular complications in vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) are well recognized, other complications such as flexion contractures and tendon nodules are rarely reported and poorly characterized.

Limited management strategies are available for these complications, which have continued to prove a challenge to management.
