A Double-Barreled Fibular Graft for the Reconstruction of Both Forearm Bones and Humeroradial Joint after a Tumor Resection

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A double-barreled fibular graft was used to reconstruct both forearm bones and the humeroradial joint after tumor resection. The patient had a tumor of radius that invaded the ulna and extensor groups. After a wide tumor resection, vascularized fibular autograft and soft tissue reconstruction was performed. A fibular graft were placed as a double barrel in the proximal ulnar and radial defects including the radial head and fixed using two locking plates. Simultaneously, reconstruction of the humeroradial joint and wrist dorsiflexion was performed. Two years postoperatively, the patient is satisfied with his elbow function while performing activities of daily living. Although amputation was one of the options considered during the preoperative planning in this case, the affected limb could be preserved by grafting a double-barreled fibula and tendon transfer, which could maintain the function of his upper left limb.
