The authors present a method for internal fixation of the scaphoid as an alternative to the use of a traditional central axis compression screw for the management of mid-waist fractures of the scaphoid via a palmar approach. This method allows for easy placement of a compression Nitinol staple across the mid-waist fracture site of the scaphoid.
