OBJECTIVE Giant cell tumors (GCT) of bone are benign tumors with local aggressiveness that most of the time occur around the metaphyseal area of long bones, often in contact with the articular cartilage. Their treatment remains controversial because of their high recurrence rate. The authors report a retrospective series of 30 cases treated using curettage followed by cementation. They suggest demonstrating the mechanical and functional benefit of this technique, its benefit controlling the… CONTINUE READING
