Development of an osteogenesis imperfecta specific quality of life measure

Hill Claire , Baird Wendy , Walters Stephen

Objectives: Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is a hereditary disorder effecting approximately 1 in 20 000 births. Symptoms include; low bone mass, recurrent fractures, varying degrees of short stature and deformity. There is currently no disease specific quality of life (QoL) measure for children with OI. This study used a mixed methods approach to develop a QoL measure for the paediatric OI population. Patient reported outcome measure development is an iterative process, moving b...

The elbow in type V osteogenesis imperfecta: is early functional loss related to radiographic findings?

Hill Claire , Offiah Amaka , Bishop Nick , Arundel Paul

Objectives: Type V osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) results in abnormal modelling of the ulna, dislocation of the radial head and interosseous membrane calcification (IOM). Individuals develop reduced functional ability as a consequence of reduced range of movement (ROM) including elbow flexion and/or supination, which may be intrinsic or secondary to the radiographic findings. We describe the evolution of radiographic and functional parameters in a cohort seen in our centre.<...

Sleep related problems in children with osteogenesis imperfecta

Murphy Kieran , Hill Claire , Barker Nicki , Kingshott Ruth

Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is a genetic disorder affecting 1 in 10,000 births with a wide variability in phenotypes. Clinical Manifestations include; recurrent fractures, bone pain, varying degrees of short stature and deformity, scoliosis, kyphosis, and respiratory failure in the severest types. Sleep disorders are under-acknowledged and are often more problematic in children with chronic illnesses. Moldosky1 identified the link between pain affecting quality of ...
