Resection and Reconstruction of a Large Giant Cell Tumor of the Distal Radius Performed in Haiti

A giant cell tumor of bone is a benign, aggressive tumor that typically involves the distal femur, proximal tibia, and distal radius. Treatment options include curettage with adjuvant therapy, the use of denosumab, and en bloc resection. This video discusses the case presentation of a 23-year-old woman with a large, fungating giant cell tumor of the distal radius. En bloc resection of the tumor is performed followed by reconstruction with centralization of the ulna.
