BACKGROUND Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma(MCS) is a rare high-grade variant of chondrosarcoma. Consensus has not been reached on its optimal management. Resection with wide margins is usually recommended, but the effect of margins has been demonstrated by little positive evidence. Moreover, the effectiveness of adjuvant chemo- and/or radiotherapy remains(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the effects and complications of the total elbow arthroplasty after the resection of the peri-elbow tumor. METHODS Between June 1998 to June 2007, 19 patients underwent total elbow arthroplasty after resection of tumors at the authors department, which involved 13 males and 6 females, including 6 patients with metastatic tumor, 1 with(More)
HYPOTHESIS The options for reconstruction after excision of a tumor around the elbow are technically difficult and limited. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 25 patients who underwent custom-made endoprosthetic reconstruction after tumor resection near the elbow between 1998 and 2007. RESULTS At final follow-up, 14 patients (56%) were(More)
BACKGROUND The reconstruction of an intercalary bone defect after a tumor resection of a long bone remains a challenge to orthopedic surgeons. Though several methods have been adopted to enhance the union of long segmental allografts or retrieved segmental autografts to the host bones, still more progresses are required to achieve a better union rate.(More)
UNLABELLED Extensive hemorrhage is a serious complication during sacral tumor resection. Identifying the risk factors predicting the possibility of extensive hemorrhage would be important to predict which patients would need large amounts of transfused blood intraoperatively and postoperatively and which patients would need blood control by vascular(More)
Synovial sarcoma is a soft tissue sarcoma with poor prognosis and lack of response to conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy. The regulatory mechanisms for the rapid proliferation of synovial sarcoma cells and the particular aggressiveness of this sarcoma remain poorly understood. Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades have been shown to play(More)
OBJECTIVE To summarize the experience in neoadjuvant chemotherapy for osteosarcoma. METHODS Between July 1996 and December 2002 113 patients, 65 males and 48 females, aged 7 approximately 31, with osteosarcoma located in pelvis (n = 2), sacrum (n = 1), proximal femur (n = 6), shaft of femur (n = 4), distal femur (n = 49), proximal tibia (n = 37), shaft of(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the efficacy of Arsenic trioxide combined with other chemo agents in patients with metastatic osteosarcoma and Ewing sarcoma. METHODS From December 2002 to June 2005, 32 patients with metastatic osteosarcoma and Ewing sarcoma were treated with chemotherapy comprised Arsenic trioxide, including 19 male and 13 female, aging from 7 to(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the oncologic and functional outcome of the cases treated with hemisacrectomy through a sagittal plane in the sacrum and simultaneous en bloc resection together with the ipsilateral sacroiliac joint without sacrificing the contralateral sacral nerves and summarize tumor resection techniques and reconstruction strategy. En bloc(More)
As a large amount of blood loss is sometimes encountered in limb salvage procedures for pelvic tumours, it is essential to identify risk factors predicting the possibility of extensive haemorrhage. We retrospectively reviewed 137 patients who underwent pelvic tumour resections. Patients with an estimated blood loss greater than 3,000 ml were classified as(More)
