Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Osteosarcoma, which rarely originates from the axial bones such as pelvis, presents a major challenge in limb preservation. We report a 9-year-old girl with osteosarcoma on her buttock. She underwent wide excision modified buttockectomy to resect the tumour with sciatic nerve involvement. One year after surgery, she was able to walk and no recurrence was found.Keywords: buttockectomy, osteosarcomaABSTRAKOsteosarkoma, tulang aksial seperti pelvis jarang sekali ditemukan, dan menjadi tantangan besar dalam upaya penyelamatan ekstremitas.
