A displacement of a part from its proper situation. A putting out of joint. A displacement of two or more bones, whose articular surfaces have lost, wholly, or in part, their natural connexion; either owing to external violence, (accidental luxation,) or to disease of some of the parts about the joint (spontaneous luxation.) Luxation is complete when the bones have entirely lost their natural connexion; incomplete, when they partly preserve it; and compound, when a wound communicates with the luxated joint. The general indications of treatment, are: - 1. To reduce the protruded bone to its original place. 2. To retain it in situ. 3. To obviate any attendant or consequent symptoms. To reduce requires extension, counter-extension, and coaptation.
