Murine models used in the study of OI include the oim mouse, which carries a naturally occurring recessive COL1A2 frameshift mutation, and the Mov13 mouse, in which a viral insertion prevents transcription of COL1A1. However, neither of these mice simulate the naturally occurring, usually dominant, COL1 point mutations that predominate in human OI.

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a disease encompassing a group of disorders mainly characterized by bone fragility and is the commonest form of heritable bone fragility. In this book, the clinical presentations with particular emphasis on rare phenotypes associated with OI are discussed together with molecular advances in diagnosis and treatment of OI. There is a broad spectrum of clinical severity in OI, ranging from multiple fractures in utero and perinatal death, to near-normal adult stature and low fracture incidence. Facial

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), also known as brittle bone disease, is a genetic disease involving primarily the skeleton but affecting all organ systems. It is an extremely multifarious condition causing frequent fractures and limb and spinal deformity, which can often be severe. While there are described surgical procedures to treat these patients, due to the variety of the deformities and the fragility of the bone, the orthopaedic surgeon is often forced to adapt or modify a plan during an operation to

I was born in 1956 in Kansas City, Kansas, at KU Medical Center. I have had around 100 broken bones and most of them were from just turning or moving the wrong way. You see, with OI (osteogenesis imperfecta, brittle bones), it does not take much at all to break a bone. I was raised in the greater Kansas City area and eventually ended up just southeast of Harrisonville, Missouri, in a small town called Gunn City, where I reside at my
