Abstract

We treated 11 patients with benign bone tumours by curettage and filling the defect with calcium hydroxyapatite (HA). There were 5 females and 6 males with a mean age of 24 years (8 to 55). The mean follow-up was for 9 months. Postoperative radiological assessment revealed that the implanted HA was well incorporated into the surrounding host bone in all patients. None of patients suffered any fractures in the postoperative period. One patient complained of pain associated with HA in the soft tissues, but this diminished within three months. No patient had local pain at the final follow-up. No recurrence noted in any patients. Follow up radiographs showed formation of much appositional bone. We conclude that HA is an excellent bone-graft substitute in surgery for benign bone tumours.
