INTRODUCTION: Advances in tumour biology understanding, improved chemotherapy and radiotherapy (neoadjuvant or adjuvant in post op treatment), ability of surgical oncologists to excise the tumour with a good margin (principle of excision without seeing the tumour) and advances in plastic surgical expertise where there is always a technique available to reconstruct any composite defect of the upper extremity have all paved the way for limb salvage surgery.

Background: Recent studies have suggested that the presence of a pathological fracture does not impact on oncologic outcomes and the feasibility of limb salvage surgery (LSS) in appropriately selected patients when combined with neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
