From an era where amputation was the only option to the current day function preserving resections and complex reconstructions has been a major advance in the treatment of musculoskeletal sarcomas. The objectives of extremity reconstruction after oncologic resection include providing skeletal...
- Function and quality-of-life of survivors of pelvic and lower extremity osteosarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma: the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study. Nagarajan, R; Clohisy, D R; Neglia, J P; Yasui, Y; Mitby, P A; Sklar, C; Finklestein, J Z; Greenberg, M; Reaman, G H; Zeltzer, L; Robison, L L // British Journal of Cancer;11/29/2004, Vol. 91 Issue 11, p1858
Limb-sparing surgeries have been performed more frequently than amputation based on the belief that limb-sparing surgeries provide improved function and quality-of-life (QOL). However, this has not been extensively studied in the paediatric population, which has unique characteristics that have...
