Proximal tibial reconstruction following wide resection in both malignant and benign tumors presents difficulties mainly due to both patellar tendon reconstruction and high risk of infection.
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of a new technique using a mesh for extensor reconstruction. Extensor lag was significantly less compared to previous reports. No complications were observed in eight patients. Utilization of the mesh for extensor reconstruction after the proximal tibial resection is a simple, reliable and successful method.
