The scaphoid bone forms part of the wrist joint and interacts with the radius. Due to its poor blood supply, healing of a fractured scaphoid can be difficult but is important to wrist function and long-term health. In surgical treatment, holes are drilled and a screw is placed across the fracture to realign the bones and support the site while it heals. Bone graft maybe placed over the fracture to aid in healing.
