Introduction Scaphoid fractures account for 60% of carpal fractures, 11% of hand fractures and 2% of all fractures. The estimated incidence is shown to be 29–43 fractures/100 000 persons/year ( 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 ). Most commonly, it occurs in

Introduction The treatment of scaphoid nonunion is still a challenge for hand surgeons. Nonunion rate of scaphoid fractures varies between 5% and 15%. 1 Due to tenuous retrograde blood supply of the scaphoid, this rate can increase up to

Case 1 A 24-year-old motorcyclist sustained a fracture at the waist of the scaphoid, which was treated with cast immobilization for 12 weeks. He suffered from activity-related pain and continuous swelling of the wrist. Examination showed limited

Introduction Fractures of the femoral head are severe, but uncommon, injuries of the proximal femur, which typically occur after posterior dislocation of the hip joint. 1 – 3 In 1869, Birkett was the first to discover and document femoral
