In this article, we present the treatment of a recurrent giant-cell tumor of the radius with en bloc resection and full-length radius reconstruction with a 24-cm long microsurgical fibular graft. At time of 8-year follow-up, there was no evidence of tumor recurrence. A satisfactory range of motion of the elbow, wrist, and forearm was maintained. There was no instability in the joints, and grip strength measured 63% of the opposite side. With appropriate dynamic tendon transfer, this procedure can provide an alternative method for reconstruction of the full-length radius after tumor resection, with functional and durable results.
