          Purpose: The proximal femur is one of the most common locations for benign bone tumors and tumor like conditions. We describe the clinical outcomes of the surgical treatment of benign lesions of the proximal femur including femoral neck using compression hip screw and synthetic bone graft.

          Methods: Thirteen patients with benign bone tumors or tumor like conditions of the proximal femur including femoral neck were surgically treated. Their average age at the time of presentation was 35 years and the average follow-up time was 76 months.

          Results: The average intraoperative blood loss was 1088 mL and intraoperative blood transfusion was required in eight patients. The average operative time was 167 minutes. All patients required one week and 12 weeks after surgery before full weight-bearing was allowed. All patients had regained full physical function without pain by the final follow-up. No patient sustained a pathological fracture of the femur following the procedure. All patients achieved partial or complete radiographic consolidation of the lesion within one year except one patient who developed a local tumor recurrence in 11 months. Post-operative superficial wound infection was observed in one patient, which resolved with intravenous antibiotics. Chronic hip pain was observed in one patient due to the irritation of tensor fascia lata muscle by the tube plate.

          Conclusion: We suggest that the treatment of benign bone lesion of the proximal femur using compression hip screw and synthetic bone graft is a safe and effective method.

          Long-term results of allograft replacement in the management of bone tumors.

          Over the past 24 years, the authors have implanted >870 massive frozen cadaveric allografts mostly for the treatment of defects created by the resection of a bone tumor. Most of the grafts were obtained from the authors' institutional bone bank. The results show that only stage and type of graft affected outcome predictably. Specifically, grafts for a Stage 2 or Stage 3 tumor had a poorer outcome than those for Stages 0 and 1. The results for allograft arthrodeses were considerably poorer than osteoarticular, intercalary, and allograft plus prosthesis. The other major factors in results were complications--recurrence, infection, fracture, and nonunion--with the former 2 having a profound negative effect on outcome. After the first year of susceptibility to infection (10%) and the third year of increased risk of fracture (19%), the grafts become stable, and approximately 75% are retained by patients and are considered to be successful for >20 years after implantation. Osteoarthritis becomes a problem at approximately 6 years for osteoarticular grafts, and so far, 16% of the patients with distal femoral, proximal tibial, or proximal femoral grafts have required total joint replacements. Although the current results are adequate, they are imperfect, and research should be directed at improving the results.

              Use of injectable calcium phosphate cement for fracture fixation: a review.

              Injectable osteoconductive calcium phosphate cements have been introduced as an adjunct to internal fixation for treating selected fractures. These cements harden without producing much heat, develop compressive strength, and are remodeled slowly in vivo. The main purpose of the cement is to fill voids in metaphyseal bone, thereby reducing the need for bone graft, but cements also may improve the holding strength around metal devices in osteoporotic bone. Several bioactive cements are being developed. One of these cements, Skeletal Repair System, is available in Europe and has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for use in selected distal radius fractures. Cadaveric studies have shown that using Skeletal Repair System cement with conventional metal fixation in certain fractures of the distal radius, tibial plateau, proximal femur, and calcaneus can produce better stability, stiffness, and strength than metal fixation alone. Early clinical results have shown reduced time to full weightbearing when cement has been used for augmentation of tibial plateau and calcaneal fractures, more rapid gain of strength and range of motion when used in distal radius fractures, and improved stability in certain hip fractures. Bioactive cements in general also may prove useful in vertebroplasty.
