Abstract

Osteoarticular and intercalary allografts are used in patients with bone tumors treated by block resection with preservation of functional muscle groups, blood vessels and nerves. Surgical ablation of malignant tumors and aggressive benign tumors by wide-margin block resection is as effective for tumor control as amputation. Bone allografts have advantages over other forms of functional limb-saving operations. The allograft-host unions heal, soft tissues adhere to the bone allograft and graft ligaments and tendons can be sutured to the patient's receptor structures. In contrast with metal and plastic prostheses, osteoarticular allografts make it possible to conserve the unaffected part of the joint where they are transplanted.
