Background: Bone metastases are responsible for high morbidity in patients (pts) with a strong clinical impact. Recently, a new multidisciplinary approach called osteoncology has benn develped. No data on multidisciplinary management of large series of patients (pts) with bone cancer disease are available. Methods: We reviewed clinical data of all the consecutive pts evaluated from Apr 2013 to Dec 2016 in the multidisciplinary Osteoncology clinic of Istituto Oncologico Veneto. We collected clinical data on primary diasease, sites of disease, pain, bone clinical and radiological situation, assesment and medical decision taken in a multidisciplinary team. Results: 481 pts (303 F, 63%) have been evaluated by a multidisciplinary team composed by medical and clinical oncologist, pain specialist, endocrinologist, radiologist and ortopedic surgeon. Totally, 444 visits and 340 discussione have been performed. 422 pts (88%) had bone metastases, median age 65 years (range 34-89). 388 pts (92%) had vertebral metastases, 167 (39%) had pelvic bone disease, 201 (47%) had other site of bone disease including extremities. 186 (39%) pts had pain. We have prescribed a corset for 151 (31%) pts, radiation therapy for 202 (42%) pts with a median time from prescription to delivery of 15 days. Vertebroplastic has been prescribed in 66 (14%) pts with a median time for delivery of 7.5 days. 33 (7%) pts received indication to orthopedic surgery with a median waiting time of 15 days. For 115 pts data on pain at visit and 30 days later were available: 41 pts had no change in NRS, 11 pts had a worst paint (median NRS Δ = +2), 63 pts had a pain reduction (median NRS Δ = -3). 301 pts received a diagnosis of SRE. Median OS (mOS) was 80.9 months; at 2 yrs 91% of M0 pts vs 75.8% of M1 pts was alive (p = 0.0018); mOS for pts with a SRE was 70 vs 89.5 mos in pts without SRE (p = 0.033); among M1 pts, there was no significant difference from having or not a SRE. Conclusions: To our knowledge this is the first reported series of pts evalutated by an osteoncologic team. OS confirms that pts with SRE had a poorer outcome. Median time from prescrition to care delivery is shorter from data available in literature, conferming the positive impact for pts from multidisciplinary approach.

Abstract

Background: Bone metastases are responsible for high morbidity in patients (pts) with a strong clinical impact. Recently, a new multidisciplinary approach called osteoncology has benn develped. No data on multidisciplinary management of large series of patients (pts) with bone cancer disease are available. Methods: We reviewed clinical data of all the consecutive pts evaluated from Apr 2013 to Dec 2016 in the multidisciplinary Osteoncology clinic of Istituto Oncologico Veneto. We collected clinical data on primary diasease, sites of disease, pain, bone clinical and radiological situation, assesment and medical decision taken in a multidisciplinary team. Results: 481 pts (303 F, 63%) have been evaluated by a multidisciplinary team composed by medical and clinical oncologist, pain specialist, endocrinologist, radiologist and ortopedic surgeon. Totally, 444 visits and 340 discussione have been performed. 422 pts (88%) had bone metastases, median age 65 years (range 34-89). 388 pts (92%) had vertebral metastases, 167 (39%) had pelvic bone disease, 201 (47%) had other site of bone disease including extremities. 186 (39%) pts had pain. We have prescribed a corset for 151 (31%) pts, radiation therapy for 202 (42%) pts with a median time from prescription to delivery of 15 days. Vertebroplastic has been prescribed in 66 (14%) pts with a median time for delivery of 7.5 days. 33 (7%) pts received indication to orthopedic surgery with a median waiting time of 15 days. For 115 pts data on pain at visit and 30 days later were available: 41 pts had no change in NRS, 11 pts had a worst paint (median NRS Δ = +2), 63 pts had a pain reduction (median NRS Δ = -3). 301 pts received a diagnosis of SRE. Median OS (mOS) was 80.9 months; at 2 yrs 91% of M0 pts vs 75.8% of M1 pts was alive (p = 0.0018); mOS for pts with a SRE was 70 vs 89.5 mos in pts without SRE (p = 0.033); among M1 pts, there was no significant difference from having or not a SRE. Conclusions: To our knowledge this is the first reported series of pts evalutated by an osteoncologic team. OS confirms that pts with SRE had a poorer outcome. Median time from prescrition to care delivery is shorter from data available in literature, conferming the positive impact for pts from multidisciplinary approach.
