Abstract

Radiation therapy and chemotherapy, while they remain an essential part of the multidisciplinary treatment of cancers, they have led to unwanted complications. Radiation-induced complications include wound and bone, growth, nervous system, tumorigenic, lung, gastrointestinal, hepatic and other complications. In this article we review the side effects of radiation therapy in musculoskeletal oncology emphasizing on bone, present our long experience, and discuss the current literature regarding radiation-induced bone complications and their management and outcome.
