Calot's work of 294 pages on the technic of treatment of congenital hip dislocation is profusely illustrated. It aims to present the technic in such a way that any practitioner can treat congenital dislocation of the hip joint without the necessity for referring the child to a specialist, if the child is seen between the ages of 2 and 5. Calot first describes the differentiation of the condition as the child begins to walk, and then tells how to prepare the joint as a preliminary to reduction, and then the various steps of the reduction. He then describes the various types of cases that are liable to be encountered, and the modifications of the technic for older children, bilateral luxation, etc., with histories of cases belonging to each type, profusely illustrated before, during and after treatment.
