Abstract

After limb-sparing resection of the proximal humerus there are several options for reconstruction. These include leaving a flail shoulder, an arthrodesis using intercalary graft(s) between the scapula and the remaining humerus, or, if the glenoid is preserved, an arthroplasty. An arthroplasty can be achieved using a custom-made proximal humeral prosthesis, an osteoarticular allograft, a combination of allograft and prosthesis, or an interpositional arthroplasty (most commonly utilizing an autogenous fibula).
