Abstract

We present a 47-year-old with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) type IV (vascular subtype) referred with recurrent episodes of severe biliary colic requiring elective cholecystectomy. Successful surgical management required extensive planning and multidisciplinary teamwork. This report is intended as a guide for clinicians in the perioperative planning of elective EDS typeIV patients.
