Intravenous Bisphosphonates (BPs) are used to treat cancer-related conditions, including hyperkalemia of malignancy, Skeletal-Related Events (SREs) associated with bone, and for management of lytic lesions in the setting of multiple myeloma. Bisphosphonate-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (BRONJ) is a severe complication of BPs, which affects the patient's quality of life.
