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...

Benign and Malignant Soft Tissue Tumors eMedicine

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/orthoped/topic377.htm

Present achievements in the field of soft tissue tumors are the result of advances in molecular biology, oncogenetics, imaging techniques, immunochemistry, diagnosis by fine-needle aspiration, surgical reconstruction, radiation therapy, and tissue banking. Benign soft tissue tumors are fairly common and are treated with surgery alone. Prior to the 1970s, surgery...

Cemented distal femoral endoprostheses for musculoskeletal tumor CORR Open Access

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2895832

Questions/purposes We asked whether newer, modular distal femoral components had improved survivorship compared with older, custom-casted designs.
Conclusions 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...

Little advantage to limb-sparing surgery compared to amputation in cancer patients

Location: http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2009-08/acs-lsm080409.php

Limb-sparing surgery, which has been taking the place of amputation for bone and soft tissue sarcomas of the lower limb in recent years, may not provide much or even any additional benefit to patients according to a new review. The analysis, published in the September 15, 2009 issue of Cancer,...

Malignant Hand Tumors eMedicine

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/plastic/topic340.htm

Although tumors of the hand are rather common, most are benign and only 1-2% are malignant. When evaluating a hand lesion, be judicious and maintain a high index of suspicion for malignancy. Malignant hand tumors are complex and challenging entities for the hand surgeon.
