Also known as: scaphoid fracture of the wrist, navicular fracture, wrist fracture.
The scaphoid bone is the most commonly fractured bone in the wrist. It is positioned on the proximal and radial side of the wrist, just proximal to the base of the thumb.
An injury due to a fall or an accident are typical causes of a scaphoid fracture. The most common history is a fall onto an outstretched hand.
