Osteogenesis imperfecta

Common Name(s)

Osteogenesis imperfecta

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a group of genetic disorders that mainly affect the bones. People with this condition have bones that break easily, often from mild trauma or with no apparent cause. Multiple fractures are common, and in severe cases, can occur even before birth. Milder cases may involve only a few fractures over a person's lifetime. There are at least eight recognized forms of osteogenesis imperfecta, designated type I through type VIII. The types can be distinguished by their signs and symptoms, as well as by genetic factors. Depending on the genetic cause, OI may be inherited in an autosomal dominant (more commonly) or autosomal recessive pattern.

Corrective osteotomy with retrograde Fassier-Duval nail in an osteogenesis imperfecta patient with bilateral genu valgum: A case report.
 

Author(s): Tsung-Yu Lin, Chen-Yu Yang, Shih-Chia Liu

Journal: Medicine (Baltimore). 2017 Nov;96(47):e8459.

 

The treatment of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) requires a multidisciplinary approach to maximize function and reduce fracture incidence. The aim of this case report was to discuss an alternative surgical approach to stabilize a corrective osteotomy using the Fassier Duval (FD) system ...

Muscle abnormalities in osteogenesis imperfecta.
 

Author(s): L N Veilleux, P Trejo, F Rauch

Journal: J Musculoskelet Neuronal Interact. 2017 Jun;17(2):1-7.

 

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is mainly characterized by bone fragility but muscle abnormalities have been reported both in OI mouse models and in children with OI. Muscle mass is decreased in OI, even when short stature is taken into account. Dynamic muscle tests aiming at maximal ...
