The article provides updates on musculoskeletal oncology based on randomized studies. In this paper, a recent study examined the prevalence of patellar complications following distal femoral resection and endoprosthetic reconstruction. The authors investigates forty-three patients who had reconstruction of the knee with use of a rotating-hinge endoprosthesis. As a result, intensive physical therapy and surveillance of the patellar tendon length had been recommended to prevent contracture.
