Mechanical augmentation with metal implants in the treatment of bone tumors limits magnetic resonance imaging and computerized tomography scan imaging due to the scattering effect. In addition, modulus of elasticity differences may cause chronic pain. We present a surgical technique in which cortical allografts are used as plates. This is a two-center experience focusing on functional and radiographic outcomes and complications.
