Description: Questions/purposes - (1) How long do proximal tibial endoprostheses last? (2) What is the typical long-term functional result after proximal tibial replacement? And (3) what are the short- and long-term complications associated with endoprosthetic reconstruction of the proximal tibia, particularly with respect to the soft tissue reconstruction?
Conclusions - Cemented endoprosthetic reconstruction of the proximal tibia provides a reliable method of reconstruction following tumor resection.
