Abstract

The effect of chemotherapy on the outcome of allograft reconstruction procedures after the resection of bone tumors is of considerable interest in the light of both experimental [1,2] and clinical evidence [3,4] suggesting that it has an adverse effect on bone repair. The crucial clinical issue, however, is whether the failure of allograft reconstruction due to infection, fracture, or both [5], is especially frequent when performed concomitant with administration of chemotherapy. We addressed this question by evaluating the clinical results and complications of segmental allograft replacement in a group of young patients who were followed prospectively and of whom the majority had high grade sarcomas and were treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy protocols.
