Objective: To evaluate the anatomical and functional results of reconstructive surgery in oncology at the Teaching Hospital of Bobo-Dioulasso. Population and method: It came from a retrospective study conducted in the orthopedics and trauma surgery at the Teaching Hospital of Bobo-Dioulasso from 1 January 2008 to 31 December 2012. He was recruited eight patients with a bone tumor of lower limbs. They all benefited from a conservative surgery with bone reconstruction by cementation associated with internal fixation. Functional rehabilitation was systematic. The anatomical treatment outcome was evaluated through visual observation and functional outcome of the score of the Musculoskeletal System. The average follow-up was 2 years. Results: He was recruited eight patients, including five men and three women. The average age was 39 years. We had three cases of bone metastases and five cases of primary tumors including two malignant. The postoperative anatomical result was good. The average score of the musculoskeletal system was 83.33% (25/30). The average follow up was two years. It was noted 25% (n = 2) early postoperative complications. In other cases the operated limb remained painless and functional. Conclusion: cementation associated with internal fixation by better therapeutic results it offers, appears to be an interesting approach in orthopedic oncology in countries with limited resources.

Keywords: Bone tumors, cementation, internal fixation.
