Julie Fernandez[edit]

Is Julie Fernandez paraplegic as well?(OI itself does not cause paraplegia)--T. Anthony 17:04, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

I decided to take her off. Yes she's in a wheelchair, but I don't find much indicating she's paraplegic as well as OI. If anyone does feel free to put her back. However there is a fairly significant difference between OI and paraplegia which I'll admit I have maybe an interest in maintaining. OIs who use wheelchairs, like myself, are not normally paralyzed in any part of our bodies. We can become paralyzed, maybe easier then others due to being more vulnerable to accidents, but in itself it's a congenital non-neurologically involved condition.--T.

Quadriplegia[edit]

Quadriplegics should not be discluded from this list. The definition of paraplegia is "a condition in which the lower part of a person's body is paralyzed and cannot willfully function." Quadriplegia, which involves paralysis of all four limbs, does involve paraplegia, as well as paralysis of the arms. Quadriplegia is simply paraplegia of all four limbs. tgok 18:32, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

COI concerns[edit]

I've removed an insertion by what appears to be a COI account primarily devoted to including references to research by a doctor of the same name. If uninvolved editors find this information to be a useful addition to the article, however, please feel free to restore. -- Khazar2 (talk) 16:48, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
