This comprehensive work on fractures of the extremities is illustrated with reproductions of roentgenograms, drawings from roentgenograms, and diagrams indicating steps in treatment and types of apparatus. Fractures in the adult and in the child are considered separately. Each part of the bones of the extremities is taken up in detail. Rare fractures also are mentioned. Various complications are described, and the method of avoiding some of them is indicated. Other complications are considered under separate chapters, as pseudarthrosis, pathologic fractures, mechanical and infectious, with especial reference to tetanus and gas gangrene. In the treatment of fractures and their complications, the best methods chosen from a large experience during the war are included as applied to civil injuries. Among the forms of treatment described are the many methods of suspension and extension, the use of plaster of Paris, and orthopedic apparatus. Modern nonoperative treatment is completely and graphically covered. Indications
