Summary:  In this paper the well-known result that a definitizable operator in a Krein space remains definitizable after a finite dimensional perturbation is generalized to a class of self-adjoint operators in Krein spaces which locally have the same spectral properties as definitizable operators. As an application the spectral properties of direct sums of indefinite Sturm-Liouville operators are studied.
