Résumé : Very large bone and soft tissue tumors located in the pelvis or upper thigh may require hemipelvectomy if local excision is not possible. Classical hemipelvectomy is associated with a high risk of local complications and usually with a poor functional result. This paper describes a modified hemipelvectomy where the preservation of the upper iliac wing provides a counterpressure for the external prosthesis, and a vascularized anterior musculo-cutaneous thigh flap decreases the risk of skin necrosis and wound problems.
