The authors analyze a group of 6 patients suffering from fractures and pseudoarthrosis of the carpal scaphoid; some of them were treated with Herbert bone screw. The authors emphasize the utility of CT, as proposed by Sanders (1988), in both pre- and postoperative evaluation of such conditions, since conventional X-rays can provide questionable findings as to both the state of the bone in the proximal fragment and the healing process at the fracture line.
