Bone tumor treatment with OssGro® granules

A 49 year old woman suffered from severe pain in her right ankle, which prevented her from walking unassisted. An X-ray revealed a defect in the anterolateral part of the tibial pilon, which proved to be a benign tumor.

 

Diagnosis and treatment

Anterolateral surgery was performed to remove the tumour. The resulting void was filled with OssGro® granules.

 

Results

Following surgery, the patient’s pain progressively decreased. Three months later, X-rays showed good osteointegration around the surgical site. During the final follow-up, two and a half years later, the patient was pain free and able to walk normally.
