This monograph first appeared in 1921. The fact that a seventh edition has become necessary attests its popularity. The facts presented are familiar to every practitioner but seldom used in everyday practice. The author has added some new observations, particularly with regard to the use of the x-rays. The work is of value to all surgeons who have fallen into a slight rut and reminds them of some of the things they learned long ago.
