Excerpt from A Clinical Treatise on Fractures
As the title indicates, the intention of this work is to treat the subject of Fractures in its clinical aspect. The matter presented is, in fact, a report of unpublished clinical lectures delivered by the author at the Pennsylvania Hospital, so revised and elaborated as to eliminate the elements of incompleteness of clinical delivery and lack of method necessarily incident to utilizing clinical material. The many details, too, of individual cases which may profitably be referred to in a clinical lecture have been generally omitted. It has also been thought desirable to avoid the restating of traditions which have become obsolete, the recording of statistics, and the formulating of methods of treatment long since abandoned; for, while such historical matter seems inseparable from a work of reference, it is not essential in a treatise intended for practical use. In the matter of the management of fractures it may be stated that while at times a choice between several methods is given, the author usually advises that form of treatment which in his own experience has proved most simple and effective.
