Patients with a solitary bone metastasis have a different prognosis according to primary tumor histotype. Surgeon has to consider this parameter when performing operations. A good prognosis means a long survivorship, high functional demands, long lasting treatment and, overall, a quick rehabilitation program. The study is on 36 patients with solitary bone metastasis from different Histotypes (Breast cancer, Kidney Cancer and Thyroid Cancer) which have been treated by resection and prostheses. Clinical findings demonstrated that resections and prosthetic reconstructions are the gold standard to help surgeon to obtain the best results. Adjuvant systemic or local therapy may help when feasible.
