Abstract

The management of patients with metastatic disease in the humerus requires consideration of many factors. A careful evaluation of the patient's general condition, an understanding of the disease process, an appreciation of the degree of bone destruction, and a working knowledge of available treatment options are required. A multidisplinary approach is essential to determine the course of treatment that best alleviates pain, preserves function, and optimizes the quality of life remaining in the patient with metastatic disease.
