Abstract

While limb-salvage surgery, which has been commonly used for malignant tumor in recent years, has many advantages, there are several problems which need to be resolved. If, in addition to the bones, the muscles are widely resected, motor control of the affected limb can be difficult to achieve after the surgery.
