Metastatic bone disease is becoming increasingly prevalent and more cases are presenting to orthopaedic surgeons. These patients may be referred by GPs or from emergency departments or oncologists with skeletal related events, such as severe pain, impending fracture or pathological fracture, metastatic spinal cord compression or hypercalcaemia.
Metastatic prostate cancer is the second most common presentation of metastatic bone disease to orthopaedic oncologists, after breast cancer. Prostate cancer frequently metastasises to bone and surgical options may include stabilisation of pathological fractures, arthroplasty, spinal decompression, resection and endoprosthetic reconstruction. Almost half the patients with prostate cancer who develop bone metastases develop skeletal related events within nine months of the development of skeletal disease.
In this case, a patient with carcinoma of the prostate was referred by their oncologist, having undergone whole-body staging for an increasing PSA using a Choline PET-CT, which identified an asymptomatic proximal femoral metastasis. After discussions between the patient, oncologist and surgeon, it was decided that there was an advantage to the patient of excision of this solitary prostate bone metastasis (oligometastasis = <3 metastatic lesions) for local control and improved oncological outcomes. The underlying principle regarding the term ‘oligometastatic’, coined in the 1990s, is that treatment still has curative intent, which sadly is rarely the case in patients with multiple metastases.
The patient underwent excision and reconstruction with a modular Adler Pantheon proximal femoral endoprosthesis with reattachment of the greater trochanter, to permit early weight-bearing and rapid return to function. The Adler Pantheon system was selected for this case because of the 3D printed bridging collar designed to achieve bone in- and on-growth to minimise the risk of aseptic loosening and trochanteric reattachment failure, the Agluna silver coating to minimise the risk of early prosthetic joint infection, and modularity to permit any possible segmental reconstruction of the proximal femur.

- Each operation and the questions associated become a named course in the CPD section
- The operative technique itself is read as a lesson as is any company implant information if this is being assessed.
- You’ll need to tick the box to confirm this has been done and can do this immediately if you have already read the op tech.
- The vast majority of operations have a 10-15 MCQ quiz covering all aspects of the decision making and the technique
- There are four possible answers of which one is correct (or on occasion more correct) than the others.
- There are additional quiz modules on the surgical steps, the implants and problem cases being added continually
- The course is completed once all the lessons are read and quizzes submitted and passed.
- On successful completion of each quiz you will receive validated CPD points that add to the certificate in your CPD folder.
- Your dashboard also will contain a record of the time you have spent logged onto and using the site.
- The timer suspends after 5 minutes though if there is no activity.
- When you restart you will resume at the same point in the module.
- Once you have completed each quiz you will need to feedback on the module first then click “submit” and your paper will be marked.
The pass mark is 75%.
- If you fall below this level you will be directed back to re-read the slides where you’ve tripped up.
- Once these have been read you can re-do just the questions you failed on.
- Once you have passed the quiz you can return at a future stage & resit .
- Operation Quiz – 1 CPD point
- Surgical steps Quiz – 1/4 CPD point
- Implants Quiz – 1/4 CPD point
- Problem case Quiz – 1/2 CPD point
One CPD point equates to one hour of academic activity
Welcome to the Professional Development question section. The objective of taking these tests is to demonstrate that you have understood all aspects of the assessment and management of patients requiring surgical intevention. On successful completion you will receive a certificate accredited by both the Royal College of Surgeons of both England and Edinburgh as well as the British Orthopaedic Association.
