Local Bisphosphonate Effect on Recurrence Rate in Extremity Giant Cell Tumor of Bone: A Prospective Randomized Controlled Tria
PI: David Greenberg
This study is a prospective, randomized, controlled multicenter trial to investigate whether the local delivery of BP as a surgical adjuvant can decrease the local recurrence rate of GCT of bone. The specific aims are to determine if BP-loaded bone cement decreases LR and provides superior results in secondary outcomes in comparison to conventional methods.
