The authors report 27 cases in which neoplasms of the proximal or distal femur were treated by resection and replacement with a Kotz modular prosthesis. In 25 cases this was not cemented but in the other 2 cases cement had to be used. After describing the prosthesis and presenting the case material, the authors discuss the advantages and limitations of this surgical technique and compare the results obtained with those reported in the literature.
