Abstract

The historical approach to the treatment of malignant tumors of the musculoskeletal system has been amputation. The introduction of adjuvant protocols has resulted in the development of various limb-salvage techniques. A multidisciplinary approach to limb salvage was begun in 1975 at UCLA, and since 1980, endoprostheses have been used exclusively in the reconstruction of extremities with malignant tumors [1]. We have reviewed the reconstruction or limb-threatening local complications of the first 151 limb-salvage endoprosthetic reconstructions performed at UCLA for primary malignant tumors between December 1980 and July 1988.
