BACKGROUND: Preservation of limb function after resection of malignant bone tumors in skeletally immature children is challenging. Resection of bone sarcomas and reconstruction with an allograft in patients younger than 10 years old is one reconstructive alternative. However, long-term studies analyzing late complications and limb length discrepancy at skeletal maturity are scarce; this information would be important, because growth potential is altered in these patients owing to the loss of one physis during tumor resection...

Ruptures of the tendon of the tibialis anterior muscle tend to occur in the context of degenerative impairments. This mainly affects the distal avascular portion of the tendon. Owing to the good compensation through the extensor hallucis longus and extensor digitorum muscles, diagnosis is often delayed. In addition to the clinical examination, magnetic resonance inaging (MRI) diagnostics are of particular importance, although damage or rupture of the tendon can also be demonstrated sonographically. Therapeutic measures include conservative or operative measures, depending on the clinical symptoms...

CASE DESCRIPTION: We report a reconstructive case in a paraplegic patient, who suffers from a severe proximal femur infection. Aiming at the preservation of the capacity to remain in a seated position to operate a wheelchair, lower leg rotationplasty was considered suitable for reconstruction. Due to severe infection and subclinical femoral artery stenosis, rotationplasty was supercharged by the inferior epigastric artery. Furthermore, extensor tendons of the foot were attached to the acetabulum to facilitate stability of the neo-hip joint...

Rotationplasty is a limb-sparing surgical option in lower limb malignancies. Sciatic or tibial nerve encasement has been considered an absolute contraindication to this procedure. We report a case of an 18-month-old girl with a rhabdomyosarcoma that affected the leg and popliteal fossa, with neurovascular involvement. Knee and proximal leg intercalary resection was performed followed by reconstruction with free microvascular rotationplasty and neurorraphy from tibial division of sciatic nerve to sural and tibial nerves, and from saphenous nerve to superficial peroneal nerve...

Reconstruction options in children after bone tumor resection are as varied as they are challenging. Advances in biologic and endoprosthetic design have led to many choices, all of which must be considered in the context of prognosis, treatment limitations, and patient/family expectations. The current experience and results of limb-sparing surgery following bone sarcoma resection in growing children are discussed, including allograft, autograft, and metallic prostheses alone and in combination, especially as they pertain to the knee...

PURPOSE: Amputations and fitting surgery have a long history in children with limb deficiencies. With the current developments in limb reconstruction and new techniques in prosthetics, the indications for amputation and fitting surgery might have shifted, but still have a very important role in creating high functional performance, optimal participation and quality of life. The purpose of this current concepts article is to give an overview of the indications, dilemmas and technical considerations in the decision-making for amputation and fitting surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic osteomyelitis is a disease that requires fastidious treatment to eliminate. However, when eradication is unable to be achieved through exhaustive modalities of antibiotic therapy and multiple debridements, significant resection of the infected bone and soft tissue must be considered, including amputation. Here we report of a salvage procedure for chronic osteomyelitis of the left tibia by employing a rotationplasty to avoid an above knee amputation and instead provide the patient with a below knee amputation...

Knee rotationplasty (KRP) is a type of surgery in which the rotated ankle serves as a new knee after being removed for bone tumor. Although this limb salvage surgery is rarely indicated in properly selected patients, it may offer functional advantages over transfemoral amputation, and more durable results compared with a prosthesis. The walking mechanics of adult patients after KRP is believed to be close to that of below-knee amputees. In this study, we evaluated steady-state walking of KRP patients from the viewpoint of the overall muscle power needed to keep the body centre of mass in motion...

PURPOSES: Telangiectatic osteosarcoma (TOS) is a rare subtype of osteosarcoma. We analyzed (1) oncologic outcome in a large homogeneous series and (2) the role of prognostic factors on prognosis, local recurrence and metastasis. METHODS: Eighty-seven patients (47 males, 54 %) were retrospectively analyzed. All except 4 had extracompartmental disease, and ten patients had lung metastasis at diagnosis. Pathologic fracture was present in 27 cases (31 %). Seventy-eight patients were treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy; nine had surgery as first treatment...

We reviewed the oncological and functional outcomes of patients treated for a primary sarcoma possibly involving the knee joint and present an algorithm to guide treatment. The records of 76 patients who had a primary bone or soft tissue sarcoma possibly invading the knee between 1996 and 2012 were identified. Mean age and follow-up was 32 years (9-74) and 64 months (12-195), respectively. Patients were grouped according to the resection (Intra-articular [IAR] vs. Extra-articular [EAR] vs. Amputation/rotationplasty) for survival and functional outcomes...

BACKGROUND: This meta-analysis compared survival and function in patients with limb osteosarcoma treated with limb-salvage surgery (LSS) versus amputation or rotationplasty. METHODS: Medline, Cochrane, EMBASE, and Google Scholar were searched until November 30, 2015 for studies reporting Musculoskeletal Tumor Society (MSTS) scores and survival rates in osteosarcoma patients. Differences between patients undergoing LSS versus ablative surgery were analyzed based on MSTS scores and postoperative survival rates...

BACKGROUND: Malignant bone tumors of the lower extremity are more frequently found in children and adolescents than in adults. Modern treatment regimens led to high limb salvage rates and offer the choice between endoprosthetic replacement and rotationplasty in many cases. Rotationplasty has proven to be an effective, highly functional option in short- and mid-term studies. Aim of this study was to assess long-term results regarding quality of life and functionality after rotationplasty and to compare the obtained results to a representative healthy German sample cohort...

Patients who have limb amputation for musculoskeletal tumours are a rare group of cancer survivors. This was a prospective cross-sectional survey of patients from five specialist centres for sarcoma surgery in England. Physical function, pain and quality of life (QOL) outcomes were collected after lower extremity amputation for bone or soft-tissue tumours to evaluate the survivorship experience and inform service provision. Of 250 patients, 105 (42%) responded between September 2012 and June 2013. From these, completed questionnaires were received from 100 patients with a mean age of 53...

BACKGROUND: Reconstruction of the distal femur after resection for malignant bone tumors in skeletally immature children is challenging. The use of megaprostheses has become increasingly popular in this patient group since the introduction of custom-made, expandable devices that do not require surgery for lengthening, such as the Repiphysis(®) Limb Salvage System. Early reports on the device were positive but more recently, a high complication rate and associated bone loss have been reported...
