We have placed at the head of our remarks an oft-quoted maxim, because we hope we shall have convincingly shown in the succeeding pages that the distortion of which we have treated, though one of the most serious, when looked at either as a mere unsightly deformity or as an affection which, in its advanced stage, renders the act of independent walking impossible, is one which is completely preventible by the commonest care of the medical man and parent.
The occurrence of in-knee and out-knee has been long known, but its etiology, pathology and morbid anatomy had not been described until the publication of our lectures on deformities in the Lancet, in 1843-4.
Nevertheless the records of general hospitals show that during the last few years many hundreds of cases of in-knee had attained to so great deformity and in-utility that surgeons have thought themselves obliged to have recourse to violent methods of cure, or to a serious 'operation,' for its relief, although others, as well as ourselves, had never met with a case that did not recover by the help of instrumental means alone.
