A 51-year-old male with known osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) (type 1) presented with symptoms and signs of infective endocarditis. Transthoracic echocardiography showed chordal rupture and free mitral regurgitation, resulting in an emergency mitral valve repair. The surgical procedure was largely uneventful but subsequent clinical course on the intensive care unit was complicated by bowel perforation requiring two laparatomies for a colonic resection and loop ileostomy formation. Histology of the… Expand
Segmental muscular defects of the intestine: a possible cause of spontaneous perforation of the bowel in adults.
A histologic analysis of 7 adult cases of spontaneous intestinal perforation revealed segmental muscularis propria defects around the perforations, which can explain bowel wall weakening, and it can be a major cause of spontaneousPerforation of the adult bowel. Expand
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)-related esophageal perforation in osteogenesis imperfecta.
This is the first reported case of esophageal perforation in osteogenesis imperfecta, and caution is recommended and low threshold to suspect perforations during gastrointestinal endoscopy in osteogenic imperfecta is recommended. Expand
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)-related esophageal perforation in osteo- genesis imperfecta
A 77-year-old woman with osteogenesis imperfecta was admitted with symptomatic choledocholithiasis. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) was carried out and mild resistance wasExpand
Four patients with Sillence type I osteogenesis imperfecta and mild bone fragility, complicated by left ventricular cardiac valvular disease and cardiac tissue fragility caused by type I collagen mutations
The combined clinical, surgical, histological, ultra‐structural, and molecular genetic data suggest the type I collagen defect as contributory to cardiac valvular disease. Expand
[Characteristics of anesthesia in patients with osteogenesis imperfecta undergoing orthopedic surgical procedures].
A retrospective analysis of OI patients treated at the Department of Anesthesiologist from 1980 to 2012 analyzed demographics, comorbidities, preoperative characteristics, anesthesia types, anesthetics and intraoperative and postoperative complications. Expand
Osteogénesis imperfecta tipo II: Reporte de un caso con una supervivencia mayor a cuatro meses
La supervivencia of los pacientes con osteogénesis imperfecta en pocas ocasiones supera el primer mes of vida, y el manejo y cuidados otorgados a estos pacients incrementan the esperanza de vida y the calidad de la misma. Expand


Perforation of the colon in a 15-year-old girl with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type IV.
The clinical diagnosis of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type IV was made, and confirmed by demonstrating that the patient's cultured fibroblasts are not producing or secreting type III collagen. Expand
Gastrointestinal problems in patients who have type-III osteogenesis imperfecta.
Chronic constipation and recurrent abdominal pain are more frequent in patients who have osteogenesis imperfecta and acetabular protrusion than in those who do not have protrusion and may benefit from early attention to a bowel program and referral to a gastrointestinal specialist. Expand
Osteogenesis imperfecta and cardiovascular diseases.
Aortic regurgitation secondary to osteogenesis imperfecta treated with homograft replacement is described and the available therapeutic options are discussed in light of the literature review. Expand
Cardiovascular involvement in osteogenesis imperfecta.
Aortic root dilatation appears to represent a distinct phenotypic trait in patients with OI that is nonprogressive and occurs in about 12% of affected individuals, which is different from that seen in a normal adult population. Expand
Obstruction of the colon due to protrusio acetabuli in osteogenesis imperfecta: treatment by pelvic osteotomy. Report of a case.
To correct deformities in both femora and both humeri, genita had corrective osteotomies, stabilized with extensible intramedullary rods, and was hospitalized for fecal impaction when he was four years old. Expand
Ischemic bowel disease.
It is suggested that ischemic bowel disease should be considered while deal with cases presenting as acute abdomen or with chronic abdominal pain, while dealing with cases presented with acute symptoms and five with chronic symptoms. Expand
Is prompt exploratory laparotomy the best attitude for mesenteric ischemia after cardiac surgery?
Diagnostic tools and timely laparotomy still need to be optimized for both diagnosis and treatment of mesenteric ischemia following CABG, which is a fatal complication in almost half the cases. Expand
Genetic heterogeneity in osteogenesis imperfecta.
An epidemiological and genetical study of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) in Victoria, Australia confirmed that there are at least four distinct syndromes at present called OI. The largest group ofExpand
Acute Mesenteric Ischemia After Open Heart Surgery
Mesenteric ischemia is a fatal complication with high mortality rates after open heart surgery, especially in older, dehydrated patients with generalized atherosclerotic vessel disease. Expand
Mortality in various types of osteogenesis imperfecta.
A registry created in association with the Brittle Bone Society, 743 patients with OI in England and Wales were observed in the period 1980-1993 and mortality rates were determined in each group by sex and attained age. Expand
