Please interpret the results with caution as trials may be in progress and select results may have been presented.
55 patients with nondisplaced fractures of the scaphoid waist were randomized to receive a below-elbow cast including the thumb or a below-elbow cast excluding the thumb. There were no differences in clinical outcomes or rate of fracture union at 6 months. The results indicate that nondisplaced fractures of the scaphoid waist can be adequately treated with a below-elbow cast excluding the thumb.
