SOTO, Camilo; PAEZ, Jorge  e  GOMEZ, Luis. Limb-salvage surgery with extra-articular resection of the knee. rev.colomb.cancerol. [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.1, pp.40-45. ISSN 0123-9015.

When we encounter a malignant bone tumor in the distal femur with contamination of the joint, whether caused by tumor extension, secondary tumor fractures with intra-articular traces, or by contamination produced by inadequate taking of biopsies, extra-articular knee resection must be performed in order to achieve primary tumor control. Several methods are at our disposal to do so; our reconstruction technique of choice is that of extra-articular resection plus preservation of the extensor mechanism. this method is not well known locally; however, the National Cancer institute of Colombia has pioneered its use, thus allowing us to attain adequate primary tumor control in malignant bone lesions in the distal femur, with fewer complications, rapid rehabilitation and more immediate return to daily activities. We are, therefore, interested in sharing our expertise on this method with orthopedic oncologists so that they may include it their armory of standard surgical procedures.
