Patient Info

Wrist

This young patient presented to me with wrist pain following a fall a year before. Subsequent x-rays and a MRI scan showed a very rare non-union of a fracture of the capitate. Under general anaesthetic the non-union was excised and grafted using a slice of bone from the iliac crest. Fixation with compression screws.

This boy had a fracture of the wrist which was treated in a plaster cast. The fracture went on to heal in a badly angulated position. A corrective osteotomy was carried out and fixed using a Titanium plate.
