Abstract

Although technically demanding, percutaneous screw fixation of acute, transverse scaphoid waist fractures has demonstrated more rapid union rates, a low rate of complication, and earlier return to work/sports compared with cast immobilization. The technique, although exacting and demanding, can be mastered with practice on cadaver specimens. The overall excellent results, high patient satisfaction, and the low morbidity associated with percutaneous internal fixation of nondisplaced scaphoid waist fractures, make it a reasonable alternative for treatment of acute, nondisplaced scaphoid waist fractures in patients requiring rapid return to work or athletics.
