The patient had presented with an eight month history of pain followed by swelling in the upper part of his right thigh. The swelling gradually increased in size, affecting his walking.

Case Summary2

A 23 year old man presented to a local hospital with swelling around the right knee joint. He underwent removal of the swelling followed by cementing of the bone defect. However, there was a recurrence of the swelling 3 months post surgery. Following initial examination and investigation at Sparsh Hospital, he was diagnosed with Parosteal Osteosarcoma in the right tibia. He was staged with MRI and PET Scan, which indicated that it was a localised tumour.

The challenge was to save the knee joint and reconstruct the huge bone and soft-tissue defect. Along with the Micro-vascular Surgeons, the patient underwent a Wide Excision of the Tumour and Reconstruction with Vascularised Fibula Graft. The post-operative period was uneventful. At a recent follow-up, two years post-surgery, the patient is free of the disease and has returned to pre-disease status.
