marfan syndrome
year old cousin of mine is diagnosed of marfan syndrome. She has effects on cvs, eyes and skeltal system.

her echocardiography shows the  following

grossly enlarged aortic  root 38mm
mild aortic regurgitation
mild tricuspid regurgitation
mild pulmonary hypertension
right ventricle and right atria enlarged

leftventricular ejection fraction 60%

kindly clarify my doubts.
1) does she have any indications for surgery?
2)is there any role for medications?
3) What is the reason for tricuspid regurgitation and pulmonary hypertension? does it occur in marfans syndrome
