Abstract:   (805 Views)
We present a case report of a 52-year-old man with a huge (12×11×10 cm) distal radius giant cell tumor (GCT) that is a lytic lesion without calcification with volar and dorsal cortical destruction.
We perform the wide resection of the distal radius (and the proximal row of the carp) and ipsilateral ulna translocation (preserving its muscular attachments and osteotomized and excised the distal end of the ulna) to radius position and wrist arthrodesis with a reconstruction plate.
The size of the tumor and the choice of its treatment method are challenging. This study shows that extensive resection of the distal radius and ipsilateral ulna translocation to radius position and wrist arthrodesis can be an appropriate treatment for huge distal radius giant cell tumor (GCT).
