to effect this was sufficient, acting on the long arm of the lever, the femur pressing on the fulcrum, the student's foot, to raise the head of the femur over the lip of the acetabulum, and all extension then had to do was to cause the head of the femur to travel back through the rupture of the capsular ligament and drop into its place in the acetabulum. The position the dislocated limb was made to take also relaxed the V ligament. This case also is a confirmation of the position taken by Dr.
more » ... tion taken by Dr. McCann in the discussion, contrary to the position of Dr. Murdock, that dislocation does not take place at any other point than at the lower and anterior portion of the acetabulum. In the case cited if the capsular ligaament had not been ruptured externally and upwardly the means used for reduction would not have been suc¬ cessful, but if it had been torn inferiorily and anteriorily it would have been reduced by manipulation if a fulcrum had been used in the groin.
