Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

Arthrodesis of the wrist is no longer a common choice among operations used in treatment for nonunion of the carpal scaphoid. However, there is, even in these advanced times, an indication for this reliable operation for the patient with a scaphoid nonunion complicated by symptomatic radioscaphoid arthritis. For this patient who has disabling pain that interferes with function, this procedure will provide painless stability and strength in a predictable manner.
