A Limb-Saving Operation for Cases with Malignant Pelvic Bone Tumors
At present, primary malignant tumors involving the pelvic bone are treated with hemipelvectomy. However, a limb-saving operation should theoretically obtain the same surgical margin in tumor resection as that of a hemipelvectomy (Fig. 1). Based on this functional consideration, limb-saving operations have been performed on selected patients. In this paper, we describe the methods of resection and reconstruction, and the functional results in limb-saving operations of primary malignant pelvic tumors.
