What should you do if FOP is suspected and/or confirmed?

In this video module, Geneviève Baujat and Christiaan Scott provide practical advice on when to suspect and how to diagnose FOP. They discuss the most appropriate investigations to confirm a case and also those to avoid if FOP is suspected to prevent exacerbation of symptoms.

In this video module, Carmen de Cunto and Richard Keen explain the current best practices for managing patients with FOP. They discuss available treatment options, and highlight some emerging agents that are currently going through trials and have the potential to improve patients’ quality of life.
