Abstract

As a source of corticocancellous grafts for treating scaphoid nonunions, the anterolateral corner of the distal radial metaphysis has several advantages over other alternatives: it provides good-quality corticocancellous bone, it allows one to harvest the graft and treat the scaphoid through the same incision, it does not require general anesthesia, and it has less morbidity than occurs when obtaining the graft from the iliac crest.
