Translated by Francis Adams
The end of the humerus at the ,elbow gets displaced (subluxated?) by leaving
the cavity of the ulna. Such luxations readily yield to reduction, if applied
before the parts get inflamed. The displacement for the most part is to
the inside, but sometimes to the outside, and they are readily recognized
by the shape of the limb. And often such luxations are reduced without
any powerful extension. In dislocations inward, the joint is to be pushed
into its place, while the fore-arm is brought round to a state of pronation.
Such are most of the dislocations at the elbow.
