This video demonstrates radical resection of a left calf mesenchymal chondrosarcoma. The patient discussed in this video is a 32-year-old man with left calf pain after sustaining an injury during a basketball game. The patient had no prior relevant medical history. Radiographs and MRIs revealed a 6-cm mass arising from the posterior aspect of the tibial mid-diaphysis. Cortical erosion of the posterior tibia also was observed. Core needle biopsy was performed and confirmed the diagnosis of a high-grade mesenchymal chondrosarcoma. This type of lesion is extremely rare, accounting for approximately 2% of all chondrosarcomas. The patient underwent radical resection of the lesion and fixation with the use of an intramedullary rod and iliac crest bone graft.
