Abstract

We report a technique of implantation of the ipsilateral vascularized fibula with pasteurized recycled bone after excision of tibia sarcoma in two cases. Plate and screws were used for osteosynthesis of die tibia or talus, vascularized fibula, and pasteurized bone. Microsurgery is not necessary for this reconstruction technique. Two patients who underwent this technique have obtained good functional results without tumor relapse 5 and 6 years after operation. The technique produced excellent results with regard to tibial reconstruction in these cases. We found it to be simple, speedy, safe, and a low cost technique by use of recycled bone.
