2018 AWARD WINNER Massive femoral and/or tibial bone defects (Anderson Orthopaedic Research Institute femoral type 2B and type 3/tibial type 2B and type 3) are commonly observed during revision total knee arthroplasty for the management of infection or during re-revision total knee arthroplasty (second or third revision). Various surgical techniques for the management of complex metadiaphyseal bone defects have been described in literature. This video shows a new, custom option for the management of complex metadiaphyseal bone defects. The rationale for the management of complex metadiaphyseal bone defects is presented, and the clinical and radiographic results of management via this new approach are discussed. Management of major bone defects during revision total knee arthroplasty is a challenge; however, this new approach may improve clinical outcomes and satisfaction in patients with the most challenging metadiaphyseal bone defects.
