Review:

"Shapiro., Byers, Glorieux, and Sponseller compile 58 chapters by an international group of orthopedists, geneticists, bone specialists, and other physicians and researchers, who describe osteogenesis imperfecta. They address the basic science and clinical practice, as well as future research and its relevance to treatment and care, for basic scientists and clinicians."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013 "A monumental nearly 600 page textbook about OI has recently been published. This comprehensive reference is a collection of chapters by an international group of physicians and researchers.Their goal was to bring together in one volume the latest information about the biochemistry, genetics, research questions and treatments available to manage OI in children and adults. A special feature is an advanced discussion of surgical techniques applicable to OI."--OI Foundation E-News, September 2013
