Limb Salvage and Allograft Prosthetic Composite

Allograft-Prosthetic Composites (APCs) are used in orthopedic oncology for limb salvage operations following tumor resection. In such cases, a large bone tumor is surgically removed, often resulting in a significant loss of bone and soft tissue. To restore function and structure, an allograft can be used in combination with a prosthesis. The allograft can provide a biological scaffold for the patient's tissues to grow and heal, while the prosthesis offers immediate mechanical support and stability.
