In malignant surface tumors, hemicortical excision in select cases may allow adequate margins with better function. We treated 10 of 22 malignant surface tumors with hemicortical excision and reconstruction from January 2000 to June 2003. There were eight conventional parosteal osteosarcomas, one high-grade surface osteosarcoma, and one surface(More)
Although large lesions of the limbs can easily be biopsied without image guidance, lesions in the spine, paraspinal area and pelvis are difficult to target, and benefit from CT guidance to improve the accuracy of targeting the lesion for biopsy purposes. A prospective study of CT-guided core needle biopsies for deep-seated musculoskeletal lesions was(More)
BACKGROUND There are very few series that document giant cell tumor of bone (GCT) in the immature skeleton, and the reported incidence in literature varies from 1.8% to 10.6%. The purpose of this study was to document the incidence of GCT in patients with open physis in the Indian population and study the course of the disease with respect to its adult(More)
BACKGROUND The distal end of the radius is one of the common sites of involvement in giant cell tumors (GCTs) with reportedly increased propensity of recurrence. The objective of the present analysis was to study the modalities of management of the different types of distal end radius GCTs so as to minimize the recurrence rates and retain adequate function.(More)
We evaluated the disease status and functional results in 30 patients (range, 6-25 years) who underwent rotationplasty for bone sarcomas from January 2000 to February 2004. Plating was used for fixation in all 27 distal femur resections. In the proximal femur tumor, the distal femur was contoured and fixed to the ilium with cancellous screws. In the two(More)
Epithelioid sarcomas (ES) are rare tumors of soft tissue that have a propensity to occur in the extremities. Epithelioid sarcomas are known to metastatise to draining lymph nodes and commonly to the lungs. Herein, a case of epithelioid sarcoma which recurred in an unusual site namely the distal phalanx of left middle finger, six months post amputation of(More)
Giant cell tumor of bone is a benign, locally aggressive neoplasm that is composed of sheets of neoplastic mononuclear cells interspersed amongst non-neoplastic, uniformly distributed, osteoclast-like giant cells. They represent approximately 4–5 % of primary bone tumors. Rarely, bone tumors have been noted to produce human chorionic gonadotropin, a finding(More)
Gossypiboma, an iatrogenic mass lesion caused by a retained surgical sponge is an extremely rare event following musculoskeletal procedures. This entity is therefore a very unusual experience and can create considerable confusion. Unsuspecting surgeons may thus be caught out by this unlikely presentation. We present our experience with a recurrent(More)
Successful management of osteosarcoma with limb salvage surgery is a challenging problem in the developing world. We report our early results with low-cost chemotherapy (without methotrexate) and low-cost limb salvage surgery. We prospectively collected data for 135 patients with histologically proven high-grade osteosarcoma of the extremities given(More)
