The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, at its annual meetings during the past 15 years, has offered instructional course lectures that supplement the papers and discussions given in the scientific sessions. The subjects for these lectures are carefully chosen and include many of the fundamental concepts and basic techniques used in the practice of orthopedics. These are generally presented by authors who themselves have devised the techniques or have made special studies and contributions to the subject under discussion. Thus, at each meeting an opportunity is provided for each member or guest of the academy to select a group of lectures on subjects of interest to him or about which he wishes to refresh or supplement his knowledge. Through the years these lectures have been so popular that they have been published in book form. These annual volumes constitute a valuable reference library for practicing surgeons, residents, and students. Volume
