Arthroscopic evaluation and treatment of scaphoid nonunion.
Scaphoid fractures are one of the most common carpal fractures and heal without complication in a majority of cases. Nonunion of the scaphoid, unfortunately, can occur secondarily to several reasons; namely, delay in treatment, delay in diagnosis, the intra-articular nature of the fracture, the precarious vascular supply of the scaphoid, and significant biomechanical stresses across the fractured scaphoid.
