Abstract

Indications for the method of reconstruction depend on type of resection, age, gender, occupation, the expected functional level and restriction of activity. After resection of the abductor mechanism, arthrodesis results in more strength and is the preferred option for the young active demanding patients. If the abductor mechanism is preserved, allograft-prosthetic composite gives good results.
