Abstract

Replacement of osseous defect, restoration of joint function, and restoration of longitudinal growth are the 3 main reconstruc- tive issues that need to be addressed when the physis and epiphysis are damaged in a skeletally immature individual. Failure in achieving these objectives leads to severe deformity and func- tional impairment, which significantly compro- mises the quality of life of young patients. Be- cause of its biological and morphological charac- teristics, the proximal fibula epiphyseal transfer has proven to be an excellent option in limb sal- vage surgery in pediatric oncologic cases meet- ing all the reconstructive requirements.
