abstract

  • The logistics of administering intravenous bisphosphonates may be problematic in the care of advanced cancer patients, especially in the home setting. Hypodermoclysis is a convenient method of administering fluid via subcutaneous infusion, presently used in the domiciliary setting. Results of the administration of clodronate via this route are reported.
