The posteroanterior (PA) view showing a proximal nonunion of scaphoid bone treated with cannulated Herbert screw at 12 weeks. There is no gap at the fracture site, no lucency around the implant and no signs of internal fixation failure with the disappearance of the nonunion line and evidence of bone trabeculae crossing the nonunion line. These findings confirm the consolidation of nonunion
