Improvement in the life expectancy of patients with primary bone tumours has led to increased emphasis on limb salvage and preservation of function. Between 1979 and 1994 we used custom-made endoprostheses in 18 patients to reconstruct diaphyseal defects after excision of primary bone tumours. The mean age at operation was 26 years (9 to 64) and the median follow-up 65 months (6 to 188). Fifteen patients have survived and are free from local or metastatic disease.
