Abstract
Scaphoid fractures are the most common fracture of the carpal bones and account for 60% carpal injuries. Nonunion may occur in 5-12% of scafoid fractures. Aim of this study is to present result of scaphoid nonuinon treated with 1-2 intercompartmental pedicled artery bone graft and canullated screw in our clinic. Between 2009-2012, 19 scaphoid nonunions ( 18 males, 1 female) were treated with 1-2 intercompartmental pedicled artery bone graft and canullated screw. The average age of patients were 31,2 (range 12-47 years). The average time from initial injury to operation was 40.8 months (range 8 months -20 years).All scaphoid nonunions healed with union at an average of 9,4 weeks( range 6-12 weeks) after surgery. The average Mayo score of patients were 76,6 (range-25-100). We determined that treatment with 1-2 intercompartmental pedicled artery bone graft and canullated screw is good option in scaphoid nonunions regardless of avascular necrosis.

Key words: Scaphoid nonunion, pedicled vascularized bone graft, compression screw
