A known case of giant cell tumor of distal femur; tumour excision was carried out with application of bone cement; follow-up x-ray taken after 6 months interval

Patient Data

Gender: Male

Radiopaque material (bone cement) is noted in the distal femur on its lateral aspect.

A well defined radiolucent, expansile area is noted superior to the bone cement along the lateral margin which is seen to cause cortical thinning.

The cementing of the cavity helps in evaluation of of its borders and thereby detection of new lytic areas/lesions.
