74.

ἢν δὲ ἐς τὸ ἔξω κεφαλὴ μηροῦ ὀλίσθῃ, τὰς μὲν κατατάσιας

ἔνθα καὶ ἔνθα χρὴ ποιέεσθαι, ὥσπερ εἴρηται, τοιουτοτρόπως: τὴν δὲ μόχλευσιν πλάτος ἔχοντι μοχλῷ μοχλεύειν χρὴ ἅμα τῇ κατατάσει, ἐκ τοῦ ἔξω μέρεος ἐς τὸ ἔσω ἀναγκάζοντα, κατά γε αὐτὸν τὸν γλουτὸν τιθέμενον τὸν μοχλὸν καὶ ὀλίγῳ ἀνωτέρω: ἐπὶ δὲ τὸ ὑγιὲς ἰσχίον κατὰ τὸν γλουτὸν ἀντιστηριζέτω τις τῇσι χερσὶν, ὡς μὴ ὑπείκῃ τὸ σῶμα, ἑτέρῳ τινὶ τοιούτῳ μοχλῷ, ὑποβάλλων καὶ ἐρείσας, ἐκ τῶν καπέτων τὴν ἁρμόζουσαν ἀντικατεχέτω: τοῦ δὲ μηροῦ τοῦ ἐξηρθρηκότος τὸ παρὰ τὸ γόνυ ἔσωθεν ἔξω παραγέτω ἡσύχως.

δὲ κρέμασις οὐχ ἁρμόσει τούτῳ τῷ τρόπῳ τῆς ὀλισθήσιος τοῦ ἄρθρου: γὰρ πῆχυς τοῦ ἐκκρεμαμένου ἀπωθέοι ἂν τὴν κεφαλὴν τοῦ μηροῦ ἀπὸ τῆς κοτύλης.

τὴν μέντοι ξὺν τῷ ξύλῳ τῷ ὑποτεινομένῳ μόχλευσιν μηχανήσαιτ᾽ ἄν τις, ὥστε ἁρμόζειν καὶ τούτῳ τῷ τρόπῳ τοῦ ὀλισθήματος, ἔξωθεν προσαρτέων.

ἀλλὰ τί καὶ δεῖ πλείω λέγειν; ἢν γὰρ ὀρθῶς μὲν καὶ εὖ κατατείνηται, ὀρθῶς δὲ μοχλεύηται, τί οὐκ ἂν ἐμπέσοι ἄρθρον, οὕτως ἐκπεπτωκός;
