|Title:||Should acute scaphoid fractures be fixed? A randomized controlled trial.|
|Citation:||J BONE JOINT SURG AM, 2005, 87 (10), pp. 2160-2168|
|Abstract:||With the proliferation of different fixation screws, there is an increasing trend to recommend early internal fixation of the broken scaphoid even if the fracture is not displaced. The benefits and risks of early fixation of scaphoid fractures have not been established. These were investigated in eighty-eight patients who were of working age with clearly defined minimally displaced or undisplaced bicortical fractures of the waist of the scaphoid.|
