Diaphyseal defects in long bones of extremities following segmental resection are very common in the clinic, and reconstruction remains a great challenge. Although there are many treatments for diaphyseal defects at present, reconstruction with an intercalary endoprosthesis may be an optimal method. We demonstrate a surgical technique for reconstruction of a humeral shaft defect with an intercalary endoprosthesis following tumor resection, and achieve a good clinical outcome. We conclude that in comparison with other methods, reconstruction with an intercalary endoprosthesis is simple, effective, and allows for earlier weight bearing and more rapid restoration of function.
