Abstract

Scaphocapitate syndrome, also called Fenton syndrome, is a rare, complex condition. Since it is often missed on initial evaluation, it is a diagnostic challenge. A high index of suspicion is required for early surgical treatment, avoiding future palliative surgery or sequelae. Cutting-edge diagnostic technologies, including three-dimensional printed models, are becoming essential tools, enabling the treatment of complex trans-scaphocapitate fracture-dislocations using open reduction and internal fixation with screws, with excellent outcomes at a 12-month follow-up period.
