Dr. Mark Pagnano, the Guest Editor of the Proceedings of The Knee Society, has suggested we republish Jacob Kulowski’s account of correcting knee flexion contractures using a turnbuckle cast. This account is an excellent example of the best clinical research reporting of the time (1932). His concepts were three-dimensional, they were based upon surgical and autopsy findings and well-reasoned, and he carefully documented the clinical situations and amount of correction in 55 cases.
