Abstract From 1984 to 1990 we treated 18 patients aged 5 to 15 1/2 years with solitary bone cysts of the humerus, the femur and the calcaneus. To fill the defect, tricalcium phosphate (TCP) instead of bone grafting was used. The clinical and radiological long-term results up to seven years postoperatively are reported. In 16 patients TCP was well incorporated without any adverse reaction to the synthetic material. Two patients with a recurrence of the bone cyst were successfully reoperated. We conclude that ceramics are a cheap and easy available substitute for bone grafts in the treatment of solitary bone cysts.
