Abstract We treated 35 patients with primary malignant tumours of the periacetabular area by resection and prosthetic reconstruction of the defect. At a mean follow-up of 84 months, 15 patients (43\%) were free from disease. The most common complications were deep infection (26\%), local recurrence (24\%) and recurrent dislocation of the hip (17\%). The surviving patients achieved an average of 70\% of their premorbid function. This method of reconstruction has a high morbidity and should be performed only at specialist centres, but the functional and oncological outcomes are satisfactory.
