Reduction of transverse, diaphyseal, jagged fractures of long bones by flexion and reversed-flexion movements has been described previously, but is worthy of being better known because of its considerable value, its simplicity, and its harmlessness. The method, which is based on an elementary principle of leverage, ought to be applied in every such case of fracture, no matter what limb is affected.
