Abstract

The treatment of high-velocity missile injury to the limbs is often associated with segmental bone loss, as well as damage to neurovascular and soft tissue. In such ''limb threatening'' cases, massive bone allograft can fill the bone defect and offer stability to the soft tissue reconstruction. The return of function in the affected limb is relatively rapid when using this method as a primary procedure. The indications for use of this technique and illustrative case reports are presented and discussed.
