Prior Radiation to Bone and Use of Teriparatide

Last Updated: · Doctors


Is the amount of irradiation received by the underlying rib cage in a woman who receives radiation to the breast/axilla after a lumpectomy for breast carcinoma enough to make the use of teriparatide contraindicated?

Yes, any amount of radiation would be considered a contraindication.
