Bovine spongioga bone (Lubboc?) was used to fill the defect of curetted bone Two patients had enchondromatosis and one patient had polyostotic fibrous dysplasia. The mean age at operation was 10 years 3 months (range, 7 years 11 months - 13 years 2 months) and the mean follow-up period was 2 years 4 months (range, 2 years - 2 years 6 months). They were evaluated clinically and radiographycally at 3 week, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, and every 6 month postoperatively. Functional assessment was evaluated by the 4 criteria described by Takigawa and radiographical assessment by the Torida’s classification. Results: There was no postoperative fracture or recurrence.
