Coraco-Glenoid Chondrosarcoma Glenoid Resection and Reconstruction with an External Tibial Plateau Osteochondral Allograft

Author(s): Carlos Abondano

Chondrosarcoma is a primary malignant bone tumor composed by a cartilage matrix. With aggressive behavior and no response to conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy protocols, surgical resection is the only curative treatment that can be offered to patients with this diagnosis. We report the case of a 41-year-old male with a right scapular chondrosarcoma located in the coracoglenoid zone; treated with wide resection of the lesion, and reconstruction with an osteochondral tibial allograft of the external tibial plateau. The technique and functional results are described above.
