In the case of marked subluxation of the tibia described, correction was obtained by the use of an original piece of apparatus, employing rotation-distraction forces acting upon Steinmann pins in the lower end of the femur and the upper end of the tibia. The apparatus is workable and practical for similar conditions. Its use is also suggested in the treatment of anterior displacements of the tibia on the femur by applying it in the reverse position.
