The prevalence of metastatic bone disease (MBD) grows each year as treatments improve. Little has been published about functional and pain outcomes in this group after surgery. Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS ) can collect information, in just minutes, about patient's physical, mental, and social health. This study evaluated PROMIS pain and functional scores in surgically treated patients with MBD.
This article was published in the following journal.

Ewing family of tumors (EFT) represents the second-most common primary bone malignancy in children and adolescents. Approximately 25% of patients have radiographically detectable metastatic disease at...
To study the evolution and optimal management of metastatic bone disease (mBD) in patients with neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs).
OBJECTIVEIn this paper, the authors demonstrate to spine surgeons the prevalence and severity of anxiety and depression among patients presenting for surgery and explore the relationships between diff...
This observational, multicenter survey is designed to assess the efficacy of oral ibandronate in adults with breast cancer and metastatic bone disease. Data on the use of ibandronate in cl...
The overall goal of the project is to reduce pain-related, 30-day readmission rates for sickle cell disease (SCD) patients. The investigators want to see if a mobile phone application (app...

The objective of this trial is to collect and compare safety and effectiveness data of Magnetic Resonance guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) using the ExAblate 2100 device and radiotherapy...
This project focuses on whether nonspecific factors as well as patient characteristics contribute to treatment outcome differences. The project uses assessment instruments, computerized ad...
Mucocellular carcinoma of the ovary, usually metastatic from the gastrointestinal tract, characterized by areas of mucoid degeneration and the presence of signet-ring-like cells. It accounts for 30%-40% of metastatic cancers to the ovaries and possibly 1%-2% of all malignant ovarian tumors. The lesions may not be discovered until the primary disease is advanced, and most patients die of their disease within a year. In some cases, a primary tumor is not found.

Controlled studies which are planned and carried out by several cooperating institutions to assess certain variables and outcomes in specific patient populations, for example, a multicenter study of congenital anomalies in children.
Subnormal intellectual functioning which originates during the developmental period. This has multiple potential etiologies, including genetic defects and perinatal insults. Intelligence quotient (IQ) scores are commonly used to determine whether an individual has an intellectual disability. IQ scores between 70 and 79 are in the borderline range. Scores below 67 are in the disabled range. (from Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p28)
Subnormal intellectual functioning which originates during the developmental period. This has multiple potential etiologies, including genetic defects and perinatal insults. Intelligence quotient (IQ) scores are commonly used to determine whether an individual is mentally retarded. IQ scores between 70 and 79 are in the borderline mentally retarded range. Scores below 67 are in the retarded range. (Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p28)
Neoplasms located in the bone marrow. They are differentiated from neoplasms composed of bone marrow cells, such as MULTIPLE MYELOMA. Most bone marrow neoplasms are metastatic.
