ABSTRACT

Surgeon-Major Hamilton, of the British Army, has made use of inelastic webbing to obtain fixity of the arm and shoulder. His method has been found effective in the dressing of a dislocation upward of the outer end of clavicle. According to the American Practitioner and News, July 30, the steps of the process of Mr. Hamilton are: first, the surgeon places a very large pad in the axilla of the affected side, and then passes around the arm of that side and so on around the body a piece of soft inelastic webbing about 1½ inch wide; this band is made to overlap 3 inches. The ends are held by stitching. Another piece of the same webbing is stitched at the back to the body-belt; brought firmly over the point of luxation, over which is placed a pad secured in place by stitching to the underside of the second strip;
