This video demonstrates radical resection of a left proximal humerus osteosarcoma. The patient discussed in this video is a 20-year-old woman with left shoulder pain and left elbow neuropathy. Radiographs and MRIs of the left humerus confirmed an osteosarcoma. The patient underwent preoperative chemotherapy, which resulted in a substantially positive response. The patient then underwent radical resection of the tumor, distal clavicle, acromion, proximal humerus, and glenoid. The left upper extremity was reconstructed and remodeled with the use of a left humeral tumor prosthesis. Multiple muscle and skin flaps were rotated around the prosthesis to improve muscle function. Postoperative imaging studies revealed stable prosthesis placement. The patient underwent postoperative chemotherapy. The patient is doing good, and left elbow and wrist range of motion continue to improve.
