Younger age, male sex, union. Questions/Purposes: We sought to test the primary and surgical treatment are associated with a higher risk of hypothesis that the incidence density of scaphoid fracture nonunion treatment. Conclusions: Our estimated incidence treatment is higher than previously estimated, to determine of scaphoid fracture is higher than previously reported. The the frequency and risk factors for nonunion treatment, and to increased enthusiasm in the USA to surgically treat scaphoid determine whether the frequency of surgical treatment in- fractures is reflected by our trend analysis. The frequency of creased over time. Methods: The MarketScan database surgical treatment for presumed nonunion after initial surgi- was
