Increasing successful treatments and rising survival rates in malignant bone tumours have emerged in the presence of the remarkable progresses obtained in medical oncology, radiation oncology and orthopaedic surgical oncology. Although it seems that the main actors of this progress are new staining techniques in histological examinations, utilization of molecular biology and genetic analysis, alteration of oncologic medications and regimes, targeted therapy modalities, sophisticated surgical interventions along with rapidly developing and changing orthopaedic implant options, the secret of the success lies actually in better understanding of basic oncological principles that have been demonstrated almost 30 years ago and changing of treatment methods in this direction: appropriate biopsy, accurate diagnosis, convenient staging and clear surgical margins. These four main topics which we think are the fundamentals for achieving successful results in the treatment of malignant bone tumours and principles that must be followed have been summarized in this review article.
