Five total hip and three total knee arthroplasties were performed, from 1969 to 1990, in six patients who had osteogenesis imperfecta. The patients who had a hip arthroplasty were followed for a mean of seven years, and those who had a knee arthroplasty, for a mean of ten years. Postoperatively, all had relief of pain and were able to walk; one patient used a walker and two used a cane. The only postoperative complication was an intrapelvic protrusion of the acetabular component six years after a bipolar hip replacement.
