1. Recent transcervical fractures of the femur may be reduced and transfixed by a surgical procedure requiring six to fifteen minutes.

2. The shock of a major operation is eliminated.

3. External fixation is unnecessary.

4. After but a few hours the patient is ready for a wheel chair or, if so disposed, may at once enjoy the use of crutches.
