Abstract

Limb salvage operations using large custom-made prostheses have become the treatment of choice for juxta-articular tumours at the knee. Resection-arthrodesis has been used since the 1920s and offers a satisfactory long term solution for young active patients. The good functional results after this procedure in 9 patients is presented here. This method should still be considered in selected cases.
