We propose an anatomical classification of fractures involving the distal articular surface of the scaphoid. The predominant patterns, in the 37 patients reviewed, were avulsion fractures from the radio-volar tip of the tuberosity and impaction fractures of the radial half of the articular surface. The possible mechanisms of injury are discussed.
