In patients under fourteen years of age, the treatment of congenital torticollis by bipolar tenotomy and immobilization in plaster in a position of hypercorrection for two months results in complete and permanent cure. In patients over fourteen years of age, correction of secondary deformities is not to be expected, but the improvement in the position of the head, neck, and shoulders is so striking that operation is definitely indicated.
