Abstract

Percutaneous surgical intervention for scaphoid fractures and some nonunions is increasingly common. There is a considerable learning curve for these procedures. Here we review basic and advanced techniques for volar and dorsal fixation of acute nondisplaced and displaced fractures as well as nonunions with minimal resorption and no humpback deformity.
