What is the healing period for aneurysmal bone cyst?
Q: What is the recovery (healing) period of a benign aneurysmal bone cyst (Post operation) in the femur if the filling has been done with bone chips? And after how long can a person get back to normal?
A:Recovery of aneurysmal bone cyst entirely depends upon the extent of initial involvement as any amount of bone graft added to a cavity has to get incorporated with the host bone. This takes a long time as the bone chips act as a scaffolding on which bone cells grow in. The consolidation time entirely depends on the size of the defect in the bone that is grafted.
