Operative Behandlungsoptionen von Knochenmetastasen



Bei Patienten mit Knochenmetastasen ist in den meisten Fällen ein kurativer Therapieansatz nicht zielführend. Falls eine palliative, operative Intervention nötig ist, sollte ein risikoarmer, technisch einfacher und kurzer Eingriff gewählt werden. Von diesem Grundsatz ausgenommen sind solitäre Metastasen von primären Tumoren mit guter Prognose. Hier sollte eine R0-Resektion angestrebt werden. Dies trifft insbesondere für Spätmetastasen zu. In diesem Kapitel werden die Indikationen zur operativen Therapie bei Skelettmetastasen dargestellt. Außerdem werden Vor- und Nachteile der einzelnen operativen Techniken erörtert.
