The Penn Orthoplastic Limb Salvage Center looks at many factors to determine if your injured limb can be saved. Surgeons look at the severity of the trauma, the degree of bone fracture, how much damage there is to the soft tissue, and if .

    Our primary focus is in the area of limb salvage for malignant tumors of the extremities. Our musculoskeletal oncology surgeons pursue aggressive treatment of metastatic skeletal lesions to prevent threatened fracture or to stabilize completed fractures. The primary thrust is in the area of limb salvage for malignant tumors of the extremities. Limb salvage surgery comprises surgical techniques designed to resect musculoskeletal extremity tumors and subsequently reconstruct a limb with an acceptable on - cologic, functional, and cosmetic result. Today, 70–90% of malignant extremity tumors are being treated with limb salvage .

    Musculoskeletal tumors are tumors that develop in muscles, bones and nerves. They can be classified as benign or malignant, and primary or secondary in nature. A benign tumour is a non-cancerous growth that does not intrude nearby tissues or spread to other parts of the body.   Advances in oncologic treatment modalities and wide resection have made limb salvage procedures in calcaneal malignancy increasingly possible. However, reconstructions of the calcaneal remain a major surgical challenge because of the rarity and specific anatomy of this by:

These medical advances naturally stimulate the search for ways of limb salvage even in malignant musculoskeletal oncology. To this pur­ pose, not only oncologists, but orthopaedic surgeons, radiologists, engineers, and biomaterials scientists should work together to design suitable surgical procedures and prostheses using autograft, allograft and : Paperback.

Where cost constraints preclude the use of expandable prosthesis in a majority of children with residual growth, rotationplasty remains an often used alternative. 32 Rotationplasty, first described by Borrgreve in and van Nes inand applied for tumors by Salzer et al.

in is also useful occasionally in adults where large tumors necessitate resection of extensive skin and surrounding soft tissue. Simon et al. published the first evidence-based study supporting the benefits of limb-salvage procedures for the treatment of bone tumors. Their multicenter study, which included patients with osteosarcoma of the distal end of the femur, reported the rates of local recurrence, metastasis, and by: 1.

Although limb salvage surgery for malignant bone tumors is considered the treatment of choice, guidelines for the rehabilitation of these patients have yet to be formally established. 3, 12, 13 The purpose of this study is to propose detailed guidelines for this patient population stratified by anatomic location and to determine whether such guidelines would impact patient by: Limb-sparing surgery for bone and soft tissue tumors, also called limb salvage, is a treatment for malignant bone tumors and soft tissue tumors (sarcomas).

Seattle Children’s surgeons who perform this surgery are trained in both pediatric orthopedic surgery and musculoskeletal oncologic surgery. Limb-saving surgery should not only pursue a good oncological and functional result but also aim at good psychological outcome.

70–85% of patients with musculoskeletal tumours nowadays can be treated by limb salvage, and 70% of those with osteo-sarcoma or Ewing's sarcoma without primary metastases will have 5 years' survival. 30Cited by:   The current volume of with musculoskeletal cancers has been the aggressive Musculoskeletal Cancer Surgery: Treatment of Sarcomas and resection of metastatic deposits.

However, from that time the treatment options have evolved dramatically and now approximately 90% of these cases undergo Limb Salvage Surgery (LSS)[1].

LSS has become the main line of treatment option for bone and soft tissue sarcomas along with adjuvant and/or neo adjuvant treatment modalities (Chemotherapy/ radiotherapy). Limb-salvage surgery has become the backbone treatment for musculoskeletal tumors in the last decades. However, limb-salvage with safe margins for tumors of the foot and ankle is challenging, due to the complex anatomy of this region.

This study aimed to evaluate functional and oncological outcomes, complications, and local recurrence of limb-salvage procedures for tumors of the foot and : Walid Atef Ebeid, Wessam Gamal Abo-Senna, Bahaa Zakarya Hasan, Ismail Tawfeek Badr, Mohamed Kamal Me.

In many instances, when the tumor is in an extremity, complete tumor resection is necessary via either limb salvaging (limb-sparing) techniques or amputation.

91 Limb-sparing procedures typically have three phases: tumor resection, bone reconstruction, and soft-tissue reconstruction for wound closure. 92 One example of a limb salvage procedure is the total femur replacement. Musculoskeletal oncology is a sub-specialty of orthopedic oncology, and it involves the diagnosis of bone cancer, diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant tumors, as well as other pathologically abnormal lesions of the musculoskeletal system in adults and children.

Since the early s, substantial progress in dealing with musculoskeletal tumours has been made, with improvements in surgical skills, radiology, chemotherapy, pathology, and radiotherapy. Nowadays, 70–85% of all malignant tumours are treated by limb salvage, without compromising the oncological result.

After many years, the functional result that may be achieved with a limb-saving Cited by:   The introduction of chemo- and radiotherapy, new surgical techniques, and modular prosthetic design has led limb salvage to become standard in the treatment of musculoskeletal malignancies [2, 12, 20, 22–25].

The success of the Vitallium endoprosthesis has since then led to the development of new materials and designs further advancing limb salvage and reconstructive surgery.

BACKGROUND Excision of a bone tumor requires reconstruction if limb salvage is a priority. Reconstruction with an endoprosthetic implant is preferred in our unit, as the patient typically can return rapidly to full weight-bearing and functional activities.
