Abstract

Isolated trapezoid fractures are rarely observed. Clinical suspicion is necessary for a diagnosis that is usually delayed or missed. There is no consensus on whether treatment modalities should be conservative or surgical. A 20-year-old female patient complained of pain, and an MRI examination showed a non-union fracture of the trapezoid bone. Surgical treatment using a headless cannulated screw and grafting was performed for trapezoid pseudarthrosis. Clinical and radiological results were satisfactory. Level of Evidence: Level V, diagnostic study.
