This is a study of results of the bifurcation operation in fourteen cases. The procedure is a palliative measure which has a definite field of indications. It is a simple method, carrying little surgical danger, but requiring strict attention to details in order to obtain good results. The series here reported included patients with fractured neck of the femur, osteo-arthritis of the hip, dislocated hip, Charcot and tuberculous hips. Eight good results were obtained by this operation.
