Abstract

Sixty-two cases of pathologic fractures occurring in 53 patients treated at Scott and White Memorial Hospital from 1966 to 1976 are reviewed and analyzed with regard to type of neoplastic lesion, location, mode of therapy initiated, functional stability of therapy selected, and average length of survival after orthopedic procedure. Pertinent literature is reviewed, and our results are compared with those of other series.
