Intralesional excision and local adjuvant therapy is recommended for treating giant cell bone tumour.
This treatment has a good functional outcome, say Dutch researchers. However, the application of cryosurgery as the local adjuvant, may require more vigorous freezing to improve local tumour control.

Therefore, researchers from the Departments of Orthopaedics, Pathology and Radiology at Nijmegen's University Medical Centre designed a retrospective study involving 36 patients all of whom were treated by various surgical procedures.
