Pelvic Malignancies — Resections of the Pelvic Bones
Malignant tumors of pelvic bones, the same as those of the scapula, can often be removed by limited resection obtaining about the same rates of success which would be obtained with a quarter amputation (Eilber et al, 1979; Enneking and Dunham, 1978; Johnson, 1978; Steel, 1978). Pelvic resections, however, are usually more difficult than scapulectomy because of the nonmobility of the bone, the depth and therefore difficulty of exposing some pelvic structures, and the connections with important nerves, vessels and viscera.
