Periprosthetic bone remodeling around a prosthesis for distal femoral tumors: longitudinal follow-up.

Serial measurements using dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) were undertaken to evaluate progressive periprosthetic bone loss in patients treated for primary bone tumors of the distal femur using an uncemented tumor prosthesis. Twelve patients underwent sequential DEXA analysis on average 26.5 and 90.9 months postsurgery. Changes in bone mineral… CONTINUE READING
