By means of the device described, the Smith-Petersen nail may be positively and simply placed in correct position without guide wires. The device is presented in the belief that the principles on which it is based are mechanically sound, and that its use will simplify the operative procedure and materially shorten the operating time, with benefit to the patient and satisfaction to the surgeon. Modifications for insertion of any type of internal fixation for fractures of the neck of the femur can readily be made.
