Part of the European Instructional Lectures book series (EICL, volume 10)

Abstract

In this written lecture we will not present the basic science fundamentals of scaphoid pathology - anatomy, physiological movements and vascular supply - that may be read in a good textbook - or all the possibilities and the most recent advances in diagnosis and treatment of scaphoid fractures, but rather concentrate on what is considered to be good clinical practice, based on the literature and our own experience.
