Basic Principles of Operative Technique

  • M. E. Müller

Abstract

Without the strictest asepsis, open reduction of a fracture should not be undertaken. In closed fractures even one single case of osteitis occurring in one hundred internally fixed fractures is a tragedy for which the method used must be held responsible. It is often overlooked that even with the conventional treatment of fractures using extension, osteitis of the femur or the os calcis may occasionally occur, and that there have even been cases where amputation was necessary.
