The metatarsal bone of thegreat toe is exposed by making a curved incision over thatbone on the inner side of the foot (Fig. 458). Excision of the Coccyx.—In excising the coccyx, thefinger is passed into the rectum and the position of the EXCISION OF THE UPPER JAW. 551 bone determined; a longitudinal incision through the skinand fibrous tissues covering the coccyx is made from apoint about a quarter of an inch above its upper limit,and is carried down to a little below its lower extremity.This incision may be supplemented with a transverse in-cision. The sacro-coccygeal articulation is then opened ; anelevator is next introduced into the articulation and thebone is raised up and grasped with forceps. It shouldthen be freed from its lateral attachments, and those uponits anterior surface, with the knife and elevator. Excision of the Upper Jaw.—In excising one-half ofthe upper jaw, the incision is begun half an inch below the Fig. 459..
