Abstract

In our program of limb-saving surgery, we are constantly comparing the possibilities and results of replacing large postresection defects of bone by either allografts or endoprostheses. Endoprostheses as cervicocapital replacement for the proximal femur (Austin Moore type) have had a long history. After resection of a tumor around the hip, total hip replacement by a special long-stem and usually custommade endoprosthesis was started in the late 1960s and was developed further after 1970. Some of our first results have been reported previously [1, 2]. Currently, total hip replacement after tumor resection has become a reliable procedure and gives better results than does replacement of other joints. The immediate results of total hip replacement after tumor resection may be excellent or good in most patients. With prolonged survival, the rate of late complications increases in direct relation to the length of survival and the activity of the patient.
