Three patients with advanced giant cell tumors of the distal radius received a frozen allograft replacement of the distal radius, accompanied by a distal radioulnar arthrodesis with ulnar osteotomy proximal to the wrist. Follow-up ranged from 2 to 4 years. During this time this combined procedure provided the following advantages: complete tumor resection, no donor site morbidity, retention of pronation-supination, and avoidance of pain or subluxation at the distal radial ulnar joint.
