ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Scaphoid Fracture

History: This 20-year-old patient presents with acute right wrist pain following a fall upon an outstretched hand while ice skating. Patient states decreased range of motion, tenderness to her wrist area, and minimal swelling.

Findings: Posterior-anterior view with ulnar deviation of right wrist shows a lucent line in the mid-scaphoid consistent with a fracture, no evidence of avascular necrosis is present.

Ddx: Radiograph is definitive for scaphoid fracture

Exam: Patient describes severe pain located at the area of the anatomical "snuff box." Exam of right wrist showed severe radiocarpal joint line tenderness, > 50% decreased range of motion of radiocarpal joint in flexion and extension, normal grip strength, and increased laxity of wrist ligaments. No laboratories ordered.

No MeSH data available.


Posterior-anterior view with ulnar deviation of right wrist shows a middle scaphoid fracture with approximately 1 mm displacement, no evidence of avascular necrosis with day of injury radiographs and 1-week follow-up radiographs.
