Abstract

Cases of arthrodesis of the knee performed after bone tumor resection using autografts (Group I) and allografts (Group II) were compared (follow-up was comparable). The two groups show differences in type of pathology, treatment and length of resection. Nonetheless, the percentage of complications and the final results were similar. Despite the fact that arthrodesis of the knee is used less and less for reconstruction, it is our belief that the use of autografts should be substituted by allografts whenever possible.
