Abstract

Hepatocarcinoma occurs frequently throughout the world. Bone metastases are rare although incidence has increased because of progress in diagnosis and treatment. The authors report 5 cases of bone metastases and review the literature. The spine is the most frequent localization of bone metastases. Radiotherapy is the treatment of choice for this lesion. Surgery should be used to prevent and treat complications such as nerve compression and pathologic fracture, only if the coagulative pattern and the conditions of the patient allow it. The authors recommend the use of long intramedullary nailing when localization of the disease is in the femur, with prophylactic stabilization of the neck in diaphyseal metastasis.
