Abstract

Treatment of scaphoid nonunions remains a challenging problem, especially in the setting of proximal pole avascular necrosis or humpback deformity. Conventional bone grafting techniques have demonstrated unpredictable results in the setting of collapse deformities, whereas pedicled dorsal distal radius vascularized bone grafts have recently been reported to have nearly a 50% failure rate when used in scaphoid nonunions with proximal pole nonunion. Free vascularized medial femoral condyle bone grafting is one option for the treatment of scaphoid nonunions with proximal pole avascular necrosis associated with a humpback deformity. The indications, contraindications, and technique of free vascularized medial femoral condyle bone grafting are presented for the treatment of scaphoid nonunions associated with proximal pole avascular necrosis and humpback deformities.
