Postsurgical radiation therapy for prophylaxis of heterotopic ossification



Postsurgical radiation therapy for prophylaxis of heterotopic ossification



New Jersey Medicine 90(9): 672-674



Radiation therapy has been shown to be the most effective prophylactic measure against heterotopic ossification (HO) in surgically repaired hip fractures. Current research is seeking the minimum effective dose of radiation. The authors present four case reports and a review of the literature on HO.
