Abstract

The majority of scaphoid fractures respond to casting, splinting, or open reduction and internal fixation. In patients who fail to heal a scaphoid fracture, several factors may contribute, including delay in treatment, fracture displacement, proximal third location, avascular necrosis, and associated carpal instability.
