Abstract

Over the last 10 years at the Ist Orthopaedic Clinic of the Rizzoli Institute more than 350 cases of massive bone homoplastic cadaver-retrieved reconstruction were carried out, after bone tumor resection. We reported the postoperative management indicated to the patient to prevent complications and to improve functional results. The indications protocol includes time required for immobilization, motion, and partial and total loading; functional and radiographic results expected. Finally, these indications are specified for site of reconstruction and fixation chosen.
