Joint Replacement in Patients with Osteogenesis Imperfecta

Pierre H.M. Pechon, Simon C. Mears

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Hip and knee replacements are challenging in patients with OI. Brittle bone leads to higher rates of intraoperative fractures. Bone deformity and hardware lead to difficulty in placement of the implant. Osteotomy may be required for deformity correction and implant placement. Such procedures should be performed by a surgeon with extensive experience in revision techniques and fracture repair.
