FRACTURE OF THE WRIST.

Dr. Royal Whitma presented a boy with a fracture of the lower extremity of the radius, the line of fracture being at the epiphyseal junction, and limiting the dorsal flexion of the hand. The accident had occurred five weeks ago.

Dr. Whitman said he intended to open the joint, chisel loose the lower fragment, to replace it, if possible, in normal posi tion.
