Scaphoid fractures detected in the subacute stage require a more meticulous and prompt approach to prevent chronicity and regain wrist function. Oblique-type scaphoid fractures are potentially unstable and may result in detrimental sequelae. Aim of this study is to suggest an easy surgical approach to restoration of the oblique-type scaphoid fractures or nonunions by using of a customized mini-plate, italic-S shaped. This surgical intervention is associated with promising outcomes and at long-term follow-up showed to avoid the development of a carpal collapse with concomitant arthritis of the radiocarpal joint.
