Esquillectomy was performed in the case of the humerus; the wrist was resected. For some days continuous extension was made on the hand, the bands being fixed to the stirrup of the humeral extension. Weight of extension, 1,500 grammes; counterpoise weight, 4 kilogrammes. (The frame is not illustrated.) combined with continuous extension. In short, a better result is obtained at less inconvenience. Two types of suspension apparatus may be used: the type in which extension is applied to a horizontally suspended limb (fig. 102), or another in which the arm is extended horizontally and the forearm vertically (fig. 65, p. 428).

Patients readily become accustomed to this: I have two in course of treatment at the present time for double lesion, and both fractures are progressing as uneventfully as could be desired. I have frequently treated fracture of the humerus, radius, ulna, and metacarpus in the same patient. These cases gave more trouble than the two of which I have just spoken, and the superiority of suspension fixation seems to me to be beyond discussion.
