Abstract

THE SAME trend toward discussions of acute trauma in orthopedic literature has continued in 1945 as in the previous war years especially as regards amputations and to a somewhat less extent fractures, for obvious reasons. In this section of the "Progress" as many articles on amputations were published as those on both apparatus and technic, the other two subtitles in our assignment.

Relatively few old line orthopedic articles appeared until well into 1946; these will be reviewed in next year's "Progress." A great many of these articles originated in military circles, where many of our more talented surgeons have been serving for several years and have gained special experience which will be of real value in civilian life. Next year there will be many less military articles as these men get out of uniform, but even so, many will be reporting their wartime experiences.
