Shehata and Hizon that the patient had "fractures extending through the scaphoid
waist," this young girl actually had bilateral osseous contusions (ie, microtrabecular fractures) of the radial aspect of the scaphoid
and did not have complete scaphoid
Among their topics are intramedullary screw fixation of the metacarpals and phalanges of the hand, the role of arthroscopy in treating carpal fractures and non-unions, intra-articular fractures of the proximal interphalangeal joint, the correction of mal-union in metacarpal and phalangeal fractures, and non-union of the scaphoid

The differential diagnosis includes scaphoid
fracture (especially considering exam findings of snuffbox tenderness), other carpal bone fracture, ligamentous disruption without fracture, carpal bone dislocation.
Understanding the radial to ulnar arrangement of the scaphoid
, lunate, and triquetrum, which comprise the proximal carpal row, is key to the evaluation of the patient.
Noting this, the consulting surgeon ordered an X-ray which revealed that the patient had a missed perilunate dislocation with a fracture of the triquetrum and a comminuted impaction fracture of the scaphoid
facet (Figure 1).
bone doesn't get too much blood flow so that's probably the main focus, the one they're most worried about," he added.
"Back in 2014 he suffered knee ligament damage at Glasgow, the following year he fractured his scaphoid
(wrist) and now it's a broken collarbone for the second year running."
