RESUMO

Angiosarcoma of bone is a rare high-grade malignant vascular tumor accounting for <1% of malignant bone tumors. Tumor location in the distal radius is very rare. Complete surgical resection with limb salvage surgery or amputation is essential for the outcome of the patient. However, the literature is vague regarding the best surgical approach for resection of the distal radius and the optimal reconstruction option after a bone tumor resection. Several reconstruction techniques have been described, varying from arthrodesis to arthroplasties. In this article, we present a report of a patient with angiosarcoma of the distal radius treated with complete resection and reconstruction with a distal radius osteoarticular allograft. We discuss the advantages and the limitations of this surgical technique for the distal radius.
