The purpose of this study was to analyze the relative bio- mechanical stability of three types of internal ixation with cancellous bone graft in a cadaveric, scaphoid nonunion model. A scaphoid nonunion model was created by remov- ing a volar wedge of bone from the waist of the scaphoid in 18 fresh frozen human cadavers. Cancellous sawbone graft was… CONTINUE READING
