PREFACE.

[ocr errors]

ALTHOUGH my views on the prognosis and treatment of Lateral Curvature of the Spine have undergone considerable modification during the fourteen years I have been engaged in orthopædic practice, this monograph is mainly based on the article “ Lateral Curvature of the Spine” which I contributed to Mr. C. Heath's “Dictionary of Practical Surgery,” 1886; on the papers published in the British Medical Journal, The Treatment of Lateral Curvature of the Spine,” May 13th, 1882;

" Two Hundred Consecutive Cases of Lateral Curvature of the Spine treated without Mechanical Supports,October 31st, 1885; and “Scoliosiometry, or, An Accurate and Practical Method of Recording Cases of Lateral Curvature of the Spine," October

" 27th, 1888; and on the paper read before the Clinical Society (April 13th, 1883), “A Case of Lateral Curvature of the Spine, illustrating its Treatment without the Use of Mechanical Supports” (vol. xvi. Clin. Soc. Trans., 1883).
