Abstract

The type and extent of a wrist lesion depends on the angulation of the hand, the force of impact and the age of the patient. We report on an unusual transscaphoidal subluxation fracture in combination with a shear fracture of the radius, caused by a low impact hyperextension trauma. To provide interfragmentary compression and a free mobility of the articular surfaces, two Herbert screws were used for osteosynthesis. The Herbert screw was designed originally for osteosynthesis of scaphoid fractures. As this implant can be buried completely within the bone, it allows fixation of other small articular fragments accordingly. This is demonstrated in the patient presented here who had a hyperextension trauma with unusual consequences.
