Abstract

This study was carried out on 25 patients with giant cell tumour of bone. All patients were in 3rd  and 4th  decades of their life. Eleven tumours were in distal femur, 8 in proximal tibia, 3 in distal radius, 3 in proximal humerus, all near critical joints. Excision curettage and bone cementing was done in all. Results were good in 17, fair in 3 and poor in 5. Three showed infection, three recurrence and one loosening. The method is very good in selected case as for as joint motion and less rate of recurrence is concerned but it can not be carried out in Enneking stage III patients.
