Proximal Femur Replacement
The proximal femur is a common site for primary bone sarcomas and metastatic disease. The purpose of this study is to assess the functional outcomes in patients undergoing proximal femur resection and reconstruction with an endoprosthesis, based on the abductor muscle repair technique.
Procedure: Proximal Femur Replacement
The purpose of this study is to assess the functional outcomes in patients undergoing proximal femur resection and reconstruction with an endoprosthesis, based on the abductor muscle repair technique.
- Gait Analysis [ Time Frame: up to 12 months postoperatively ]gait analysis as measured by software in gait lab
- Functional Outcome Questionnaire [ Time Frame: up to 5 years postoperatively ]outcome questionnaire
