Left: Pathological bone loss from gunshot wound. 2.5 inches lost. Ends of bones partially healed and injured bone reabsorbed due to significant delay in reaching surgical hospital (one fortnight on the battlefront after gunshot - external splinting and sanitation only).

Right: Inlay sliver fixation graft in same case. Held in place with kangaroo sutures. Engaging both ends of ulnar fragment.

Orthopedic and Reconstruction Surgery, Industrial and Civilian. Fred H. Albee, 1919.
