The surgical removal of the radial styloid process is presented as an aid in tile treatment of malunited and ununited fractures of the carpal navicular. It is believed to simplify the surgical approach, and ensures better visualization and immobilization of the fracture fragments, as well as less likelihood of secondary degenerative arthritic changes. By employing the excised styloid fragment for grafting material, the whole operative procedure can be confined to a single operative field.
