A method is described of reducing and fixing fractures of the neck of the femur under scopolamine-morphine anaesthesia with adequate roentgenographic control both in anteroposterior and lateral directions, without skin incision, and without external fixation.

It is not claimed that the procedure will solve the problem of treating fractures of the neck of the femur, but it is believed that it merits consideration. The method has been used in ten cases. The results have been sufficiently encouraging to warrant continued use. A report on end results must be deferred to a later date.
