Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate the clinical result of treatment of bone cyst by transplantation of the autologous bone marrow combined with the allograft bone.

METHODS:

From February 2004 to March 2006, 13 patients with bone cyst were treated by transplantation of the autologous bone marrow combined the the allograft bone. Among the 13 patients, 6 were males and 7 were females, ranging in age from 5 to 16 years, averaged 11.5 years. In the patients, 5 lesions were located in the proximal humerus, 2 in the femoral neck, 3 in the femoral shaft, 2 in the proximal tibia, and 1 in the distal tibia. Among the patients, 5 had a complication of pathologic fracture. All the patients underwent an erasion of the bone cyst, and then the transplantation of the autologous bone marrow combined with the allograft bone, and 8 of them were also given an instrument fixation.

RESULTS:

The follow-up for 6 months to 2 years after operation revealed that 5 of the patients had an incision healing by the first intention, 5 had an effusion in the incision site, and 3 had a delayed healing of the incision. According to the Capanne criteria, the postoperative X-ray findings indicated that 10 patients had Grade I healing, and 3 had Grade II healing. The complete healing took 3.5-8 months, averaged 5. 2 months. There was no recurrence. When the fixation instrument was removed, no pathologic fracture occurred. The function of the upper and lower limbs recovered.

CONCLUSION:

Transplantation of the autologous bone marrow combined with the allograft bone is an effective and safe procedure for treatment of bone cyst.
