The radius (Fig.1) is the most commonly broken bone in the arm and a break of the radius at the end nearest the wrist is known as a Colles fracture. A Colles fracture frequently occurs when a fall is broken with outstretched hands.
Another type of fracture occurring in the wrist is a fracture of the scaphoid, a small carpal bone at the base of the thumb (Fig.2).
The scaphoid characteristically fractures in a manner similar to the radius (Colles) fracture. Scaphoid fractures heal more slowly due to poor blood supply. Non-union fractures are more common in scaphoid fractures than any other bone due to insufficient blood supply.
A severe fracture of the scaphoid, may require surgery.
A screw or wire may be used to stabilize the scaphoid.
