|BACKGROUND: Limb-salvage reconstruction for periacetabular malignant tumors is one of the most challenging problems in orthopaedic oncology. Reconstructive options include resection arthroplasty, endoprosthesis, allograft, recycled autobone graft, arthrodesis, and pseudarthrosis. However, no standard procedure exists because of rarity and clinical variability of the disease. We previously developed a megaprosthetic system with a constrained total hip mechanism (C-THA).
QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We evaluated (1) survival of patients and C-THA; (2) postoperative function; and (3) complications.
METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 25 patients with primary periacetabular tumors treated using C-THA between 1985 and 2009. There were 18 male and seven female patients with a median age of 44 years (range, 16-72 years). They included 11 chondrosarcomas, eight osteosarcomas, two giant cell tumors of bone (one locally aggressive benign, one malignant), and others in four. Surgical margin was wide in 18 patients, marginal in five, and intralesional in two. The minimum postoperative followup for survivors was 32 months (median, 163 months; range, 32-285 months).
RESULTS: The 10-year overall survival rate of all patients was 47%. C-THA implants survived in 19 of 25 patients at last followup. Twenty-one patients acquired ambulatory activity. There were seven local recurrences, resulting in hemipelvectomy in one patient. Postoperative complications included deep infection in eight of the 25 patients, dislocation in four, and aseptic loosening in two, necessitating five revision surgeries and three implant removals.
CONCLUSIONS: Our observations suggest C-THA using an acetabular reconstruction cup is a useful reconstructive option after resection of periacetabular malignant tumors despite frequent postoperative complications.
