Lesson on clinical examination of a scaphoid fracture and assessment of the anatomic snuffbox. The scaphoid bone is one of the carpal bones of the wrist. A scaphoid fracture is important to rule out due to risk of avascular necrosis, which is a compromise of bone vasculature leading to death of the bone. Scaphoid fractures can occur with a FOOSH injury. In this lesson, we discuss the clinical assessment to rule out a scaphoid fracture, including assessing and localizing the anatomic snuffbox.
