2001 Scaphoid blood flow and acute fracture healing

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/83-B/6/809

We have investigated whether assessment of blood flow to the proximal scaphoid can be used to predict nonunion in acute fractures of the scaphoid. We studied 32 fractures of the scaphoid one to two weeks after injury, by dynamic fat-suppressed T1-weighted gradient-echo MRI after the intravenous administration of gadopentetate dimeglumine...

Clinical Practice Guideline in the Diagnosis of Scaphoid Fractures Medscape

Location: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/714859

We developed and implemented clinical practice guideline (CPG) using computerized tomography (CT) as the initial imaging method in the emergency department management of scaphoid fractures. We hypothesized that this CPG would decrease unnecessary immobilization and lead to earlier return to work.
Conclusion: This CPG resulted in rapid and accurate management of...

Limited exposure approach for scaphoid screw insertion E-Hand

Location: http://www.e-hand.com/img/img00055.htm

Because of the deep position of the scaphoid, scaphoid fracture fixation traditionally requires fairly wide surgical exposure. A variety of volar, dorsal and radial exposures have been described. Wide exposure has the disadvantages of creation of a wide zone of scar tissue as well as possibly disrupting existing circulation...

Retrospective review of 234 scaphoid fractures and nonunions treated with arthroscopy

Location: http://www.fimnet.fi/sjs/articles/SJS42008-280.pdf

The purpose of this paper is to retrospectively review 234 consecutive cases of scaphoid fractures and nonunions treated using arthroscopy with the dorsal percutaneous implantation of a headless compression screw for healing and complications.
We conclude that the dorsal percutaneous treatment of scaphoid fractures and nonunions using arthroscopy is safe and...

Review of the current methods in the diagnosis and treatment of scaphoid fractures

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1741990/

If neglected or misdiagnosed, non-union of a scaphoid fracture will almost inevitably progress to radiographic and symptomatic osteoarthritis of the wrist with subsequent morbidity and lifelong disability, especially in young males in which the fracture is more common. Fractures of the scaphoid bone are the most common fractures of the...

Scaphoid Injury eMedicine PMR

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/pmr/TOPIC127.HTM

The scaphoid is the most commonly fractured bone in the carpus (ie, wrist), and, frequently, the diagnosis of a scaphoid fracture is delayed. A delay in the diagnosis and treatment of this fracture may alter the prognosis for union and dramatically increase the long-term likelihood of arthritis

Trauma- Midcarpal instability following distal scaphoid excision

Location: http://www.e-hand.com/img/img00022.htm

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.

Wrist Scaphoid Fractures and Complications eMedicine Radiology

Location: http://www.eMedicine.com/radio/topic747.htm

The scaphoid is the most frequently fractured carpal bone, accounting for 71% of all carpal bone fractures. Scaphoid fractures often occur in young and middle-aged adults, typically those aged 15-60 years. About 5-12% of scaphoid fractures are associated with other fractures, and approximately 1% of scaphoid fractures are bilateral. The...
