Background: Scaphoid fracture is the most common among carpal bone fractures, frequently imperceptible on initial radiographs. Tendency of scaphoid fracture to undergo in non-union makes it an important challenging injury for all orthopaedic surgeons. Displaced scaphoid fracture has high non-union rate in conservative management asserting the need to explore operative treatment. Materials and method: A prospective study was conducted in our institution in thirty patients in 20 to 50 year age group, for displaced scaphoid fracture (<30 days duration)...

Scaphoid non-union affects wrist joint function and is often associated with a predictable pattern of degenerative change. A 30-year-old man presented with a symptomatic 15-year-old right scaphoid fracture with secondary scaphoid non-union advanced collapse of his right wrist. There was no evidence of avascular necrosis. The initial injury was from a fall onto his outstretched hand. We performed a right scaphoid open reduction, internal fixation and iliac crest bone graft. One year after the operation, the patient had good wrist function and grip strength...

BACKGROUND: Perilunate dislocations and fracture-dislocations are a subcategory of the carpal instability complex. Herein, we report our university hospital experience with this complex injury. The goal of our study was to find predictive factors and quantify the development of arthritis and lunate necrosis. We tried to measure the impact of arthritis on hand function. METHODS: Between January 2000 and December 2014, 21 patients underwent surgery for perilunate dislocations and perilunate fracture-dislocations of the wrist in our tertiary university center...

Scaphoid non-union management is still a challenge in clinical practice for orthopaedic surgeons. Though several treatment methods have been described, there is an ongoing debate about optimum management. Based on new concepts about avascular conditions, promising results were reported with metaphyseal decompression of the distal radius by increasing the vascularization of the radial column of the carpus. We aimed to evaluate the clinical, radiological, and functional outcomes of distal radius core decompression and fixation with palmar percutaneous cannulated compression screws without grafting in patients with scaphoid waist fracture non-union...

OBJECTIVE: Herbert type B1 and B2 scaphoid fractures can be treated by orthopaedic treatment or surgery. The aim of this study is to analyse results and complications of scaphoid waist fractures treated using the percutaneous volar approach. MATERIAL AND METHOD: We present a retrospective study of 92 patients, treated in our institution from 2006 to 2016 using a volar percutaneous fixation. Mean Follow-up was 16 months (range 12-48). Injuries were classified using Hebert's classification, including B1 and B2 fracture types; the other fracture types following this classification system were excluded...

We present 20 patients with established proximal pole scaphoid nonunions treated with curettage and cancellous autograft from the distal radius and screw fixation. Fractures with significant proximal pole fragmentation were excluded. Patients were treated at a mean of 26 weeks after injury (range 12-72). Union occurred in 18 of 20 patients (90%) based on computed tomographic imaging. The two nonunions that did not heal were treated with repeat curettage and debridement and iliac crest bone grafting without revision of fixation...

Ramin Mandegaran, Sam Gidwani, Ali Zavareh
OBJECTIVE: The scaphoid is the most commonly fractured carpal bone. The presence of a concomitant hook of hamate fracture is of particular relevance given that it is often occult on routine wrist/scaphoid radiographs and that hook of hamate fractures are prone to symptomatic non-union, resulting in chronic ulnar wrist pain. Prompt diagnosis and immobilisation/fixation may minimise such complications. Our study is aimed at assessing the frequency of concomitant hook of hamate fractures in patients with scaphoid fractures...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous scaphoid fixation through either a volar or dorsal approach has the advantage of minor soft tissue damage compared with ORIF, and faster fracture union compared with conservative treatment. However, this technique demands highly intraoperative reliance on X-ray control, including increased radiation exposure and all associated side effects. PURPOSE: To test the possibility and efficacy of volar percutaneous scaphoid screw placement under minimalradiation exposure...

Treatment of scaphoid fractures has been focused mainly on achieving union, with less attention to restoring normal scaphoid shape and orientation. Malalignment of one carpal bone will disrupt the kinetics of the entire wrist. The dorsal intercalated segment instability deformity associated with scaphoid waist nonunion is a nondissociative form of carpal instability. It has to be reduced in the treatment of scaphoid waist nonunions to avoid kinetic problems that will lead to arthritic changes. Computerized tomography scanning has become indispensable to visualize the humpback deformity clearly...

The reported results for the treatment of scaphoid nonunions with non-vascularized grafts are based on observational studies with a high variability in union rates from 38%-100% and time to union from 6-18 weeks, and there is also a lack of a standard classification. Meta-analyses and systematic reviews have been presented to better support conclusions from large pools of data (604 to 5246 cases), but their interpretation remains limited because of lack of uniformity in the studies analysed. Several authors have presented results from the Zaidemburg flap, with highly variable outcomes despite using the same technique; union rates have ranged from 27%-100% achieved between 6...

We present the surgical outcomes of non-vascularized bone grafting taken from the iliac crest in 24 patients with scaphoid nonunion and avascular necrosis. The Fisk-Fernandez technique was used in 11 patients, and cancellous bone grafting was used in 13 patients. Bony union was achieved in 22 of the 24 patients. Non-vascularized iliac bone grafting can be used for the surgical management of scaphoid nonunion with avascular necrosis. Although revascularization of the proximal fragment after surgery was not evaluated, bony union was confirmed in nearly all patients...

BACKGROUND: Scaphoid non-union is often caused due to missed fractures, inadequate or inappropriate management. Matti-Russe and interpositional grafting techniques are used in the treatment of non-union. There are very few studies in literature that compare the outcomes of these techniques. The aim of our study was to analyse the factors influencing outcome in the management of scaphoid non-union and to compare the results of the Matti Russe procedure with interpositional grafting techniques...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the results of arthroscopic reconstruction for the treatment of unstable scaphoid non-union with cancellous bone autograft. METHODS: 13 patients were treated with a mean age of 26 (18-45) years. The average time from injury until surgery was 14 (6-48) months. Preoperative and postoperative clinical and radiological parameters were evaluated. Mean follow-up was 16.8 (12-36) months. RESULTS: Consolidation was achieved in all cases at 7 (4-10 weeks), no patient had complications or reoperations...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this retrospective comparative study was to assess whether a complementary treatment by pulsed electromagnetic field could increase the bone-healing rate of scaphoid non-union without SNAC (scaphoid non-union advanced collapse) treated by retrograde percutaneous screw fixation. CASE DESCRIPTION: Eighteen patients with scaphoid non-union were included in this retrospective study. The group 1 was made of nine cases (seven stage IIA and two stage IIB) of scaphoid non-union treated by retrograde percutaneous screw fixation and pulsed electromagnetic fields (Physiostim(®))...

BACKGROUND: Scaphoid fractures progress to nonunion rates of up to 15% when non-displaced, and are even more frequent when the fracture is displaced. Standard treatment in these cases is surgery; however, individuals unable to undergo this operation, or for those who wish to try more conservative measures, there may be benefit from nonoperative options. Of these, low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) has been shown to improve fracture nonunion healing. The purpose of this study was to perform a comprehensive meta-analysis of relevant literature to determine success of the use of LIPUS for treatment of scaphoid nonunion...

INTRODUCTION: In treatment of scaphoid non-union bone healing requires beside vital tissue and stability, enduring compression and a good interface between the graft and scaphoid fragments. While fixation techniques show a good primary stability, they reduce sintering and thus compression of fragments in the long term. Therefore, a modified technique optimising the cancellous interface between graft and scaphoid but still providing enough stability without fixating implants should be evaluated...

REVIEW
Mark J Winston, Andrew J Weiland
Scaphoid fractures are a common wrist injury, especially in athletes. Clinicians should have a high index of suspicion for a scaphoid fracture in any patient complaining of radial-sided wrist pain after a fall on an outstretched hand. Advanced imaging, including CT and MRI scans, may be useful in diagnosis and classification of fracture patterns. Treatment varies based on the fracture location, stability of the fracture, and predictability of the fracture to heal. Treatment involves either non-operative management with a thumb spica cast or brace, or operative fixation with a headless compression screw, k-wires, or scaphoid-specific plates...

We report our experience with the arthroscopic treatment of 23 cases of scaphoid nonunion. We explain the surgical technique and describe the different steps needed to achieve bone union. We report our initial clinical and radiological results. This was a prospective non-randomized study. Inclusion criteria were a scaphoid nonunion without radiocarpal arthritis, without any time limit and without any selection as to nonunion location. Before the operation, patients underwent an X-Ray and CT scan or MRI. Schernberg's classification was used to evaluate the location of the nonunion...

INTRODUCTION: Conventional non-vascularized bone grafts as well as vascularized bone grafts are used to treat scaphoid non-union (SN). Due to limited available studies, the field of application using both grafts for SN still remains controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate a treatment algorithm for the use of both vascularized versus non-vascularized bone grafts based on clinical outcomes and quality of life (QoL) to improve the level of evidence. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Based on a retrospective cohort study, including 28 patients with vascularized and 45 patients with conventional bone grafts, functional parameters, radiological outcome, Mayo-wrist-score, and QoL by SF-36 were applied to statistically compare the outcome of these two techniques...
