Multifocal giant cell tumors of tendon sheath along a single tendon: A case report with review of literature.

J Clin Orthop Trauma 2020 Jul-Aug;11(4):690-693. Epub 2020 Jun 1.

The giant cell tumor of tendon sheath (GCTTS) or nodular tenosynovitis arises as discrete solitary nodule in the tendon sheath near joints of toes and fingers. Multifocal giant cell tumor of tendon sheath is a rare entity, of which the etiology is not yet fully understood and it is different from diffuse type of GCTTS. Diffuse type of GCTTS occurs around large joints having a main mass from which a small satellite nodule may arise. Multifocal GCTTS along a single tendon is a more rare entity. Herein, we describe a case of multifocal GCTTS along the tendon sheath of flexor digitorum profundus tendon of index finger. The patient was managed by surgical excision of the tumor swellings with no recurrence at two years follow up.

Background And Objectives: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) lockdown has presented a unique challenge for sarcoma care. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the early results and feasibility of surgeries for bone sarcomas during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Methods: Our prospectively collected orthopaedic oncological database was reviewed to include two groups of patients- those who underwent surgery in the immediate 4 weeks before lockdown (non-lockdown group) and those operated in the first 4 weeks of lockdown (lockdown group). All patients were followed-up clinically and telephonically to collect the outcome data.

Results: Out of the 91 patients who qualified for inclusion, fifty were classified into the non-lockdown group while 41 patients formed the lockdown group. Both the groups were comparable with respect to baseline demographic parameters. However, during the lockdown period 37 patients (90%) had undergone a major surgical intervention as against 24 patients (48%) in the non-lockdown group (Pā€‰<ā€‰.001). There was no significant difference in type of anaesthesia, median estimated blood loss and procedure duration. None of the patients/health care workers had evidence of severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus 2 infection at 15 days follow-up.

Conclusion: Our study results suggest that appendicular bone tumours can be safely operated with adequate precautions during the lockdown period.
