Introduction: This study is to evaluate the outcomes of En bloc resection and reconstruction in patients with GCT of the bone around the knee and in the distal radius. Materials and methods: We reviewed 41 cases of GCT of the bone that was treated by En bloc resection around the knee joint and in the distal radius from 2011 to 2018. The local recurrence, metastases, complications and functional score were evaluated for each operation technique. Results: The average of MSTS score for all group was 78% (excellent). In the knee joint, the megaprostheses group had an excellent MSTS score of78.9% and good 21.1%. The MAMC group had an excellent MSTS score of40.0%, good 50.0% and fair 10.0%. One patient in the megaprostheses group had metastasis to the lung and 1 patient in the knee arthrodesis group has a recurrence. Infection occurred in 2 cases of megaprostheses while only 1 case in MAMC. Both of the groups in knee joint GCT had 1 patient with implant loosening. In the distal radius, FVFG group had an excellent MSTS score 100% and NVFG group had an excellent score 77.7%, good 11.1% and fair 11.1%. One patient in the NVFG group had an infection, 1 patient has implant loosening and another one patient had graft failure. Two patients in the NVFG group had a recurrence. No metastasis was found in both of the group types of surgery in distal radius GCT. Conclusion: Functional outcome of a patient with GCT of the bone after En bloc resection and reconstruction with the above techniques had comparable results with previous studies.
- En bloc resection
- Fibular graft
- Giant cell tumor
- Megaprosthesis reconstruction
