"Isolated, pure radial dislocation of the Scaphoid: A case report and review of literature "
AbstractIsolated scaphoid dislocation is a rare injury of the wrist. To our knowledger, only 22 cases of isolated scaphoid dislocation have been reported in Enghish-language literature and we could find only one case with pure radial dislocation. We present a 34-year-old man with isolated pure radial scaphoid dislocation that was treated by open reduction and repair of the scapholunate ligament and pin fixation. Because of the rarity of the injury and as few orthopedic surgeons seem to have encountered it, we present this case along with literature review stressing on treatment options and results.
