Abstract

Giant cell tumors are locally aggressive tumors with a high rate of recurrence. There are various methods exist as treatment option for reconstruction following tumor resection. Wide excision is the management of choice, but this creates a defect at the proximal end of tibia.We here present our experience with wide resection and vascularised autogenous fibula grafting for GCT of proximal tibia. From 40 years old male with GCT right proximal tibia with right knee flexion contracture. We preferred ipsilateral vascularized fibular graft as reconstruction modality following by arthrodesis on affected limb. Evaluation of anatomical, functional, radiological outcomes of this management was undergone. After 3,5 years , the patient has good outcome. There is no pain, no reccurency of tumor, the graft is union and become hyperthrophy. Patient can walk with full weight bearing for now
