Abstract

Malignant bone tumours around the forearm are rare. Nowadays, oncological and surgical management of bone sarcomas of this region has improved significantly. Although the anatomical features are complex, limb-sparing surgery is possible with wide surgical resection. Biological reconstruction methods are promising in this anatomically unique region. In addition, meticulous soft-tissue reconstruction yields good functional results in the hand and wrist.
