ABSTRACT
Trans-scaphoid perilunate fracture dislocations (TSPLD) are uncommon injuries and constitute about 3% of all carpal injuries. Up to 25% of these high energy trauma cases go undiagnosed. Presented are 43 (3 female, 40 male ) consecutive patients treated for dorsal TSPLD, all were closed fractures. Patients were between 17 and 66 years old. Twenty male patients were injured in active duty military service. Surgical treatment was made with a volar approach using titanium cannulated headless compression screws (3.2mm) placed via a guide wire. Repositioning the dislocated carpus is then conducted using 3 temporary fixation Kirschner wires (1.6mm). The patient had a volar short ann splint for 4 weeks, then given an orthosis. Triple fixation Kirschner wires were removed 6-8 weeks postoperatively. Mean follow-up period was 29 months (range 20-38). The average Mayo wrist score for all 43 patients is 87 (good) (range 65-99). All patients returned to their previous employment.

    Background: Since proximal pole fractures of the scaphoid are frequently overlooked, the poor vascularity in the proximal pole fragment often leads to nonunion. Vascularized bone grafts have been recently tested in cases with scaphoid proximal pole nonunion, but the indication for this treatment...
