Description: Distal scaphoid excision is gaining popularity as a treatment of scaphoid nonunion. It requires the strong radioscaphoid and radioscapholunate ligaments to maintain support of the remaining proximal carpus. In this case, the proximal carpus was destabilized by the effect of radial stylidectomy on these ligaments.
