Delayed presentation of hamate fractures: recognizing and addressing the hidden risks
Hamatum fractures are rare fractures among carpal bone fractures. It can easily be overlooked in the emergency room and daily outpatient clinic examination. It has been 8 days since our patient was a right hand dominant male patient. The joint range of motion was full at the 6th week after surgery. A delayed or missed patient's results can lead to disability and poor outcomes. We emphasize to clinicians that rare bone injuries may be encountered, especially wrist injuries, and that wrist injuries should be examined in detail, and we hope that this article will raise awareness.
