Osteoblastoma is an extremely rare entity that represents less than 1% of all bone tumors, and affects twice as many males as females with peak incidence between 15 and 20 years. Osteoblastomas commonly affect axial bones, long bones, bones of the foot and hand, and less commonly the pelvis, scapula, ribs, and clavicle. Osteoblastoma does not have a classic(More)
A 13-year-old apparently healthy girl presented with mild dull pain in her right knee area of 1-month duration. There was no night pain and no history of fevers, night sweats, weight loss, or trauma to the area. The patient was not taking any pain medication. Physical examination revealed a very firm mass protruding along the lateral distal aspect of her(More)
The scapula is a relatively uncommon site for primary bone sarcomas. Tumors arising from the scapula are often initially contained by the rotator cuff muscles that protect pertinent adjacent muscles as well as the brachial plexus and axillary blood vessels. Limb-sparing resection of a scapula sarcoma is technically complex and requires meticulous dissection(More)
Tumors involving the distal humerus are extremely rare. Those tumors can be safely resected and then the extremity reconstructed. In this article, we present a series of patients treated with hinged semiconstrained modular distal humeral replacement for reconstruction following wide resection of tumors of the distal humerus. We retrospectively reviewed the(More)
A limb-sparing resection was performed for osteosarcoma of the proximal tibia in a young patient. A special modular segmental proximal tibial endoprosthesis that includes a hinged total knee component was used for reconstruction. A medial gastrocnemius rotational flap was utilized to reconstruct the extensor mechanism of the knee. The muscle flap aids in(More)
