Slide 15 of 23
This is the other proximal tibial tumor we treated without replacement.
Cavity was curetted, 80% phenol was then applied to the cavity walls to kill remaining tumor cells. Only the subchondral area is packed with bone graft. The main cavity is filled with PMMA, Ender rods are used as reinforcing.
She was operated on 9 months ago and at parennt has minimal pain but is still on crutches.
