PAGE TWO 60 Steel Rods Used For Bone Setting Developed at Kennedy Method Requires No Cast, Hospiralization By Howard W. Blakesltre CINCINNATI, Nov. 16. (if)— Hoi would you like one of the new re inforccd leg bones?. Break It am the surgeon merely has to straight en it out. No cast, no medicine, no long hos pital stay. Or a reinforced hand? All he ttoe Is to straighten it out after the break. Both these things actually hap pened, and the x-ray photograph o the leg bone is on exhibition hen at the Southern Medical Associatioi convention. These reinforced bones are byproducts of a new method of mend ing broken;bones. The mending is done by pushing a stainless stee rod—for big. bones almost a girder— down through the hollow marrow . tunnel of the bone. Doctors ca those rotts "pins". The longest- i nearly two feet. '. Two exhibits show how. The miraculous leg .is in an exhibit bj Dana M. Stuart, M.D., of Kcnned> Veterans' Hospital, Memphis. A broken thigh bone was mended by a shining, diamond shaped rod, so strong that U takes seventy jxiunds to flex. ':...''. The patient walked around in E few weeks on his reinforced leg Then he drank too much red !:o.uor A nasty fall, broke the'same leg again, in fact bent It 20 degrees The.doctors merely bent the thigh straight and turned him loose. The reason for this new surgery i- quicker return to work, for broken thighs a few weeks instead of nearly a year, faster healing, no casts, :es complications. Done in Mississippi Even among doctors this mending Is credited to Germany early in the war.- But years before Germany it was done at Meridian, Mississippi, by Doctors Leslie V. Rush and H. Uowry Rush. • , They have an exhibit^ here with some of new type "pins"'that mend not only thighs,' but lower legs, broken knees, ankles, feet, and both upper and lower arms, wrists, hands and collar bones. They started in 1937, but give credit for the firsts to Belgian who used a wire on a collar bone in" 1907 and a British doctor who used 'a metal pipe on a thigh bone in 1910. They had a. young fellow who -broke a bone in his hand hitting a man's head, with his brite fist. The hone was pinned with stainless steel. The youngster got well so fast that he'went out; snd slugged another skull, He broke the same bone. This time the;doctors merely straightened the bend. Both the veterans and the. Meridian physicians remove the* pins after ttie-fypacs have healed. Little Rock Bank Thief Is Caught On West Coast 1 T SAN DIEGO, Calif., Nov. 16.
