A comprehensive study of intraosseous and extraosseous blood supply of scaphoid utilizing newer techniques as has been applied to study the anatomy of blood supply of tibia, the talus and the head of femur in man, is undertaken. The exact relationship between blood supply of scaphoid and non union or avascular necrosis of scaphoid in Indian population was compared with the western population. It is concluded the scaphoid in Indians has a better vascularity of the proximal pole, leading to less incidence of non-union or avacular necrosis.
