Abstract

Scoliosis, kyphosis, and other spinal pathologies are often seen in patients with osteogenesis imperfecta. Scoliosis and kyphosis can lead to respiratory compromise, which can result in decreased health-related quality of life. Both surgical and non-surgical management are used to treat scoliosis and kyphosis. Concerning surgical management, it must be noted that osteogenesis imperfecta patients have altered anatomy that often necessitates significant pre-operative planning and deviation from surgical techniques used in idiopathic scoliosis cases. Management focused on prevention is recommended.
