Abstract

Rotationplasty is an alternative reconstructive strategy after sarcoma resection that often gets overlooked due to concerns about cosmesis. "Rotating" a distal segment 180 degrees and fixing it to a proximal segment leaves a highly-functional, durable reconstruction that functionally compares favorably to other limb-salvage techniques. Cosmetic outcomes have no discernible impact of the emotional and social functioning of cancer survivors following rotationplasty. This chapter discusses techniques of rotationplasty, as well as its oncologic, functional and emotional outcomes.
