Page 367 - ... flannel is all that is necessary for its lining. No dorsal splint is needed, but, as before referred to, a small pad will, in most cases, be required over the dorsal surface of the lower fragment.

The need, therefore, in medicine, of that combination and concentration of individual work which is adopted...
