Because bone metastases lead to pain, reduced mobility and pathological fractures, they have a risk of morbidity and mortality. Solitary bone metastases are treated with radiotherapy but some treatment with surgical removal of the lesion. Blood loss encountered during surgical intervention which will be performed in metastatic bone tumours is a situation which is commonly seen and leads to fatal events. It is more likely to encounter especially in tumours which exhibit osteolytic activity and has good vasculature, like renal cell carcinoma. Significance of bleeding control in our case who was operated from his humerus due to renal cell carcinoma and for whom total humerus replacement was performed was tried to be explained together with the literature.
