 Background: The varieties of treatment methods for the scaphoid non:::union::: have always

 been a discussable issue for orthopaedic surgeons. The current study, considered to be

 review for treatment results of the patients who sustained the scaphoid non:::union::: with or

 without avascular necrosis and compared these two groups clinically and radiologically.

 Methods: The clinical and radiologic files of the patients who sustained the scaphoid

 non:::union::: and underwent surgical treatment between 2004 and 2009 in our hospital, were

 collected and in the final follow-up, 37 patients and 38 non:::union:::s underwent physical exam,

 grip power test, DASH questionnaire and radiography.

 Results: Avascular necrosis was detected in 22 cases and 16 cases had no avascular

 necrosis changes. Following open reduction and bone grafing, :::union::: was seen in 36 cases,

 and non:::union::: in 2 cases which one was in the avascular necrosis group and another in without

 avascular necrosis group. The comparison of the residual pain, range of motion, DASH

 score and grip power in two groups, did not show a meaningful difference (p>0.05).

 Conclusion: Although multiple studies indicated that in the presence of the avascular

 necrosis in the proximal fragment of the scaphiod, possibility of :::union::: in the conventional

 graft methods was lower than vascular pedicle grafts, but this study demonstrated that the

 conventional treatment method yet was associated with a considerable successs and a reliable

 treatment method.
