Limb Salvage surgery with custom prosthesis has now been well established. This paper analyses our experience with the largers series from a single centre in Madras, India. 100 cases have undergone prosthetic replacement surgery in 6 years. The average follow up was 27 months. 50% of cases were osteosarcomas. 45 cases were in the distal femur. CT scan, MRI and DSA were done preoperatively. The prosthesis were made of stainless steel or titanium. The functional results were 8% excellent, 50% good and 30% fair. Complications were biological, mechanical and oncological.
