Abstract:   (948 Views)
Isolated fractures of the trapezoid are very rare. Of all of the fractures of the carpus, the most common happens for the scaphoid, which represents 68.2% of all carpal fractures. In contrast, trapezoid fractures represent 0.4% of all carpal injuries. We present a rare case of a trapezoid fracture associated with a scaphoid fracture that was successfully treated with percutaneous fixation with a headless cannulated compression screw and the patient had a full functional recovery.
