Additional information

Editor’s Note. This translation was initially performed by Dr. Per K. Amundson, with modifications by Drs. John Skedros and Richard Brand. We took substantial license in condensing some of the cumbersome sentence structure and in using more contemporary terms. Some statements appeared ambiguous and we necessarily interpreted the meanings, hopefully capturing Wolff’s intent.
