Individuals with fibrous dysplasia, particularly of the proximal femur, present significant challenges to the orthopaedic care team. Higher risks for fracturing and bone resorption make joint replacement a tenuous solution. Underlying associated conditions such as increased vascularity, bone deformity, and neurological and endocrine abnormalities complicate treatment further. Because of the low prevalence, there has not been much written in the literature on joint replacement in the setting of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia. Yet, understanding the physiology of the condition and subsequent care for this population remains important for the orthopaedic nurse caring for these patients.
