Abstract

Isolated carpal scaphoid dislocation is an extremely uncommon injury. Various methods have been used to treat the scaphoid dislocations, which involves open reduction and K-wire fixation with or without ligament repair or just closed reduction and cast application. The rarity of this injury has led to the proposal of vague and sometimes conflicting treatment strategies. In this article, we report a case of isolated palmar dislocation of scaphoid with an undisplaced fracture. Even though isolated dislocations of scaphoid have been reported before, this particular injury pattern of isolated dislocation with a fracture through the waist of scaphoid has not been reported before to the best of our knowledge. This case was managed by closed reduction, percutaneous Herbert screw fixation, and cast immobilization for 6 weeks, which produced a satisfactory short-term outcome.
