Kang, Shim, Hahn, and Kang: Palmar Divergent Dislocation of the Scaphoid and Lunate


Fracture and dislocation of carpal bones are usually presented as lunar or perilunar dislocation. Palmar divergent dislocation of the scaphoid and lunate has only been reported in 4 cases until now. We experienced a case of palmar divergent dislocation of the scphoid and lunate with a fall from height injury in a 28-year-old male patient. We treated with open reduction and internal fixation with two Kirschner's wires. The result was satisfactory without evidence of avascular necrosis or traumatic arthritis of the scaphoid and lunate after 12months of follow up. We report upon this case with a brief review of the literature.
