Abstract

Two cases of reconstruction after resection of giant cell tumor of the distal metacarpal are reported in which reconstruction was achieved with a nonvascularized fibular autograft and silicone metacarpophalangeal joint arthroplasty. At 2 year and 1 year follow-up evaluation, respectively, the patients were found to be doing well. This method of reconstruction appears reliable and presents the possibility for vascularized reconstruction if that is thought necessary.
