Scaphoid Fractures
The scaphoid bone is one of eight small bones that make up the “carpal bones” of the wrist. There are two rows of bones, one closer to the forearm (proximal row) and the other closer to the hand (distal row). The scaphoid bone spans the two rows. This puts it at extra risk during injury, which accounts for it being the most commonly fractured carpal bone.
