1. Fractures of the carpal navicular are commonly met with. If they are overlooked or are inadequately treated, as is frequently the case, non-union occurs.

2. Cases of established non-union can be dealt with adequately by drilling multiple holes across the line of fracture by open operation; good bony union is promoted by such an operation, provided subsequent immobilization is prolonged.
