But if the other bone (fibula?
) of the leg be broken, less powerful
extension is required, and yet it must not be neglected, nor be performed
slovenly, more especially at the first bandaging. For in all cases
of fracture this object should be attained then as quickly as possible.
For when the bandage is applied tight while the bones are not properly
arranged, the properly arranged, the part becomes more painful. The
treatment otherwise is the same.
