Cemented distal femoral endoprostheses for musculoskeletal tumor CORR Open Access
We asked whether newer, modular distal femoral components had improved survivorship compared with older, custom-casted designs.
Cemented modular rotating-hinge distal femoral endoprostheses demonstrated improved survivorship compared with custom-casted implants during this three-decade experience. Patients with low-grade disease and long-term survivors of high-grade localized disease should expect at least one or more revision procedures in their lifetime.
