The book is well illustrated and provides several case examples to help readers appreciate the thought process behind this innovative technique and clarify the situations when the experienced authors could apply epiphysiolysis to enhance the outcomes of properly selected patients. This is a very useful book for specialists in orthopedic oncology.

Distraction osteogenesis avoids some complications, but might lead to others that require appropriate management: for example, deep infection, leg-length discrepancy and deformity, and even fracture The critical conditions for the success of the technique are a lesion no more than 15 cm in length, the availability of at least 0. In selected adolescent patients with osteosarcoma in which the tumour is in full contact with the epiphysis, epiphyseal preservation by epiphysiolysis and reconstruction by distraction osteogenesis can provide an excellent outcome, resulting in a stable reconstruction that functionally restores the native limb.

Conventional karyotype analyses show that, as a general rule, osteosarcomas have complex altered karyotypes with multiple numerical and structural aberrations; this is mostly due to an elevated rate of chromosomal instability CIN involved in the pathogenesis of osteosarcoma.
