Percutaneous Doxycycline Treatment of Aneurysmal Bone Cysts With Low Recurrence Rate: A Preliminary Report
Aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) has a recurrence rate of between 12% and 71% without en bloc resection or amputation. There is no percutaneous ABC treatment drug regimen demonstrating consistent evidence of bone healing with recurrence of < 12%. Doxycyline has properties that may make it appropriate for percutaneous treatment.
Soft tissue sarcomas are a heterogeneous group of malignant tumors. Standard treatment for soft tissue sarcoma of the extremity is surgical excision and adjuvant therapy; however, the role of neoadjuvant chemotherapy is controversial.
Complete resection is critical for local control of primary bone sarcomas. Intraoperative consultation, including frozen section of bone marrow margins, frequently is used to aid in this goal.
Lymphoma of bone is uncommon. As a result of this, many aspects of primary lymphoma of bone (PLB) are controversial: the definition, treatment strategies, response criteria, and prognostic factors.
Iterative Curettage is Associated with Local Control in Giant Cell Tumors Involving the Distal Tibia
The distal tibia is an unusual location for a giant cell tumor (GCT). Treatment choices are unclear because of their rarity, the anatomy of the ankle, and difficulties associated with reconstruction.
A Dual-center Review of Compressive Osseointegration for Fixation of Massive Endoprosthetics: 2- to 9-year Followup
Aseptic failure of massive endoprostheses used in the reconstruction of major skeletal defects remains a major clinical problem. Fixation using compressive osseointegration was developed as an alternative to cemented and traditional press-fit fixation in an effort to decrease aseptic failure rates.
Reconstruction of the extensor mechanism after resection of the proximal tibia is challenging, and several methods are available. A medial gastrocnemius flap commonly is used, although it may be associated with an extensor lag. This problem also is encountered, although perhaps to a lesser extent, with other techniques for reconstruction of the extensor apparatus. It is not known how such lag develops with time and how it correlates with functional outcome.
High Infection Rate Outcomes in Long-bone Tumor Surgery with Endoprosthetic Reconstruction in Adults: A Systematic Review
Limb salvage surgery (LSS) with endoprosthetic replacement is the most common method of reconstruction following bone tumor resection in the adult population. The risk of a postoperative infection developing is high when compared with conventional arthroplasty and there are no appropriate guidelines for antibiotic prophylaxis.
A Long Femoral Stem Is Not Always Required in Hip Arthroplasty for Patients With Proximal Femur Metastases
During hip arthroplasties for treating proximal femur metastases, a long femoral stem frequently is used, presumably protecting the entire femur against progression of the existing lesions or development of new lesions. However, it is unclear whether a long stem is really required.
