Clinical and Radiographic Outcome Following Management of Benign Lesions of the Hand and Wrist with Calcium Phosphate Bone Cement
Clinical Trial ( IRB ) #: 17-024-1
Title: Clinical and Radiographic Outcome Following Management of Benign Lesions of the Hand and Wrist with Calcium Phosphate Bone Cement
Principal Investigator: Dr. Craig Rodner
Description: Traditional treatment for benign tumors of the hand and wrist involves curettage to remove the tumor. Following removal, the hand is typically reconstructed with autograft or allograft tissue. Due to concerns of donor site morbidity with autografts and immunogenicity with allografts, there has been a shift towards using various types of bone graft substitute to fill the void after bone tumor removal. Calcium phosphate bone cement is an alternative to allograft or autograft bone following curettage in the treatment of benign hand and wrist tumors. Few studies have reported patient outcomes following treatment with calcium phosphate bone cement grafting following curettage for treatment of enchondroma of the hand and those that have included several patients with pathologic fractures, which required fixation. The purpose of this study is to examine the long-term outcome of patients who were treated with calcium-phosphate bone cement for benign lesions in the hand and wrist without pathologic fractures. This is a one time study visit. Patient reported outcome measures, physical exam finding, and a radiographic assessment will be used to evaluate the success of this procedure.
