Often in place of the fracture formed false joint and a cyst in the body of the navicular bone. If bias is found, impose a plaster cast from toes to the base of the upper third of the forearm, and the first finger zagipsovyvayut, leaving only half of the free end phalanx. After 2.5-3 months of plaster removed and produce X-ray control. If fracture union was not yet arrived, plaster bandage again for up to two months. If the radiographs were observed displacement of bone fragments, performed surgery: fixation screw spokes. Perhaps treatment with external fixation. In this case the terms of fracture union are reduced to two months. In all cases recommended early initiation of physical therapy, movement of fingers. Complications of scaphoid are false joints and delayed union was broken. When these conditions are executed operations of varying complexity depending on the qualifications of trauma surgeons.
