Meta-analysis of the prognosis after surgical treatment of osteosarcoma complicated by pathologic fracture

CONCLUSION: Complicated with pathologic fracture is a negative prognostic indicator of osteosarcoma, and its poor survival rates (both OS and DFS) may be associated with a higher DMR. For osteosarcoma patients with pathologic fractures treated with standard treatment, LRR and DMR exhibit no significant difference between amputation and limb-salvage surgery.PMID:35559384 | PMC:PMC9091088
