An evaluation has been made of the effect of drilling and bone-grafting for non-union of the fractured femoral neck or aseptic necrosis of the femoral head, or both, in fifty-three patients. The results show that the procedure is effective in restoring continuity to the ununited femoral-neck fracture, and viability to the necrotic femoral head in a sufficient number of instances to warrant its consideration in the management of these complications.
