Abstract

Little has been written about the specific timing and elements involved in the follow-up of orthopedic oncology patients1,2,7. The experience with bone tumor treatment at the First Clinic of the Istituto Rizzoli started 30 years ago and more than 15,000 patients have been treated to data. The increment of limb salvage surgery is linked with the improvements in imaging and surgical skills and with the availability of new reconstructive techniques. For this purpose it is mandatory to carry out meticulous monitoring of the patients. A large number of patients are still followed up to evaluate the results in terms of oncological and functional status. Based on this experience we developed a time schedule to better respond to the need for adequate patient evaluation.
