Ocular characteristics and complications in patients with osteogenesis imperfecta: a systematic review.

Acta Ophthalmol 2021 May 19. Epub 2021 May 19.

Department of Internal Medicine, Section Endocrinology, Amsterdam Bone Center, Amsterdam University Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Purpose: Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a rare inherited heterogeneous connective tissue disorder characterized by bone fragility, low bone mineral density, skeletal deformity and blue sclera. The dominantly inherited forms of OI are predominantly caused by mutations in either the COL1A1 or COL1A2 gene. Collagen type I is one of the major structural proteins of the eyes and therefore is the eye theoretically prone to alterations in OI. Read More

Finite Element Analysis of Air Gun Impact on Post-Keratoplasty Eye.

Clin Ophthalmol 2020 21;14:179-186. Epub 2020 Jan 21.

Department of Ophthalmology, Fukuoka University School of Medicine, Fukuoka, Japan.
