Description: Reconstruction of the Pelvis Using a Segmental Autograft of the Ipsilateral Femur
J. Puget
Tumours of the pelvis are doubly difficult to manage: not only does the growth have to be removed, but means have to be devised to guard against postoperative loss of function if the tumour site has involved the hip joint. If the acetabulum is involved (Enneking Zone II), the tumour often extends either into the iliac wing (Zone I), or into Zone III (the pubic rami and the obturator foramen), which means that any reconstruction will need to involve either Zones I + II, II + III, or, sometimes, I + II + III.
