ABSTRACT

I wish to call attention to the possibility of applying the ambulant method to leg fractures in children, and to discuss the method used and results obtained in fractures occurring in children from the age when they first begin to walk up to the age of puperty, say 14 years. This was discussed, in a measure, by the writer at the New York Academy of Medicine, Jan. 11, 1897, and reported in the Medical News Feb. 13, 1897.
