Abstract

In recent years attempts have been made to identify the clinical and radiographic parameters which would enable metastatic lesion involving the risk of fracture to be highlighted. A total of 258 cases of pathological fracture of the femur and humerus referred to the Tumour Centre of the Rizzoli Orthopedic Institute from 1950 to 1991 were examined in order to evaluate the efficacy of radiographic parameters which identify osteolysis with the risk of pathological fracture.
