DIRECT LEVERAGE IN THE TREATMENT OF GUNSHOT FRACTURES OF THE FOREARM.

DUEÑO, FRANCISCO P.

The satisfactory results which have been obtained by the author by using the lever action of a long screw for the reduction of obliquely displaced fractures of the radius would seem to indicate that this procedure should be tried in many cases usually subjected to operative treatment.

The author has employed this method in gunshot fractures, but it seems equally or even more adapted to civil surgery.

In all cases treated by the author the screw has been perfectly tolerated, and even in cases of infection its early removal because of focal osteitis has never been necessary.
