Abstract:

The prevalence of hip fractures in patients with a history of can- CER is expected to rise, regardless of whether the fracture is pathologic or not. The purpose of this research was to find answers to two questions: (1) What is the appropriate imaging modality to determine if the fracture is pathologic? (2) Is osteosynthesis (OS) an appropriate technique for the treatment of leg bone neck fractures in cancer patients? We performed a retrospective review of patients with leg bone neck fractures who underwent OS or Hemiarthroplasty (HA) at a single oncological referral centre. There were 127 patients known, 109 of whom underwent angular distance and eighteen of whom underwent OS. It was decided to compare the imaging to the histological analysis.
