Osteochondroma Resection of the Humerus

Osteochondroma Resection of the Humerus

An osteochondroma is a benign tumor. These most commonly occur in the knee region but can be seen in almost any bone. Dependent on the size, shape, and location, these lesions may cause symptoms and affect a patient’s range of motion. Osteochondromas also can
cause pain from soft-tissue irritation, compression of neurovascular structures or the growing osteochondroma pushing adjacent bones apart.

A small open incision is made and tissues are retracted to locate the osteochondroma. Using X-ray guidance, Dr Chudik excises the lesion at the base with resection of the periosteum. The symptomatic lesion is then removed and the wound is properly sutured closed.
