Effect of anatomic site and irradiation on the rates of revision and infection of allograft-prosthesis composites after resection of a primary bone tumor: a meta-analysis

Abstract

Allograft-prosthesis composite reconstruction after resection of a primary bone tumor may have theoretical advantages, such as restoration of bone stock and soft tissue attachments. However, the reported results of APC of different anatomical sites differ widely. We conducted a meta-analysis to estimate the revision and infection rates associated with… (More)
