Abstract

BackgroundTo investigate the short and medium term outcomes of bone defect reconstruction with bone cement prosthesis after clavicle malignancies resection.

MethodsA total of 5 clavicular malignancy patients experienced bone cement prosthesis reconstruction after subtotal claviculectomy were enrolled the study from January 2005 to May 2012. Musculoskeletal Tumor Society score MSTS, Visual Analogue scale VAS and American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons shoulder outcome score ASES were adopted for assessment.

ResultsThe mean follow-up period was 25.8 months. All patients were performed bone cement defect reconstruction after claviculectomy. In which, 3 cases showed disease-free and other 2 cases were alive with sickness. The average Musculoskeletal Tumor Society score was 85.40% ± 5.68%77%-90%, Visual Analogue Scale was 1.40 ± 0.55 1–2 and American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons Shoulder Outcome Score was 92.40 ± 3.2987–96.

ConclusionsAdoption of clavicle bone cement prosthesis for bone defect reconstruction after tumor resection can maintain the contour of shoulder and reduce the complications ascribe to the claviculectomy. It is an effective and feasible therapeutic procedure in clinical setting.
