- Scahoid Frx Menu
- Non Diagnositic X-ray
- tension in palmar radioscaphocapitate ligament leads to displacement of distal pole of scaphoid;
- consider immobilization to relaxe palmar radiocarpal ligaments;
- place wrist in sl radial deviation and slight palmar or neutral flexion;
- initially patients should be placed in long arm cast for 6 weeks;
- time to healing by location:
- times to union increasing for more proximal fractures;
- frx of distal third heal in approx 6-8 weeks;
- middle third frx heal in 8-12 weeks;
- frx of proximal third heal in 12-23 weeks;
- non diagnositic radiograph
- Casting of Scaphoid Frx
- Percutaneous Scaphoid Fixation
