PMID:  11677669     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Function preserving management of a dominant thumb metacarpal chondrosarcoma is reported, with a literature review for this uncommon neoplasm. Wide local excision of the metacarpal followed by temporary silicone block interposition and definitive iliac crest bone grafting was performed. A persistent wound defect was managed by a radial artery forearm flap. The functional result was acceptable. In the literature, there were seven cases of thumb metacarpal chondrosarcoma reported; two were treated by ray amputation, and the other five were treated by excision of the metacarpal. Three of those five had bone graft and the other two had simple resection. Of these seven cases, three had local recurrence and one a distant metastasis.
