Abstract
Aging of the population results in an increase of the incidence of cancer and bone metastases. The proximal femur is one of the most frequent locations of bone metastases. A pathological fracture has a major impact on the quality of life and potentially on survival. In case of impending fracture, prophylactic fixation is therefore strongly recommended. The management of metastases of the proximal femur depends on multiple parameters, life expectancy and fracture risk being the most important ones. If survival is estimated to be less than 6 weeks, surgery is generally not indicated. Beyond 6 weeks, surgical indication essentially depends on location of the metastases on the proximal femur and the presence of a fracture.
