• Complications of Vascularized Fibular Grafts in the Pediatric Population for Femoral Neck Reconstruction

    15 days ago - By Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery

    Benign bone tumors of the femoral neck are particularly prevalent in the pediatric population. Without sufficient reconstruction, patients present with long-lasting complications including pathologic fractures, gait disturbances, and osteoarticular disturbances.1 Due to the tenuous nature of the blood supply and constant mechanical stress, femoral neck pathologies are particularly challenging to manage.2 In this study, the authors reconstructed the femoral neck via vascularized fibular graft after tumor resection.
