ACUTE DILATATION OF THE STOMACH.

ACUTE DILATATION OF THE STOMACH. There are many features in connection with acute dilatation of the stomach that merit attention and further investigation. In the first place the condition has not received the attention it deserves. This is shown by the absence of any adequate discussion of it in most of the popular text-books of the day, and even in the best of them. And there is reason to believe that acute dilatation without pyloric obstruction is frequently overlooked by physicians and surgeons, probably because of lack of familiarity with its occurrence and its principal characteristics. H. Campbell Thomson's1 recent collection of cases and summary of the chief features will therefore undoubtedly prove useful. He has collected forty-four cases, which he divides roughly into five groups according to mode of origin: Those cases without apparent cause or lesion after death; those showing after death other definite lesions; those following surgical operations but without other lesions http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

There are many features in connection with acute dilatation of the stomach that merit attention and further investigation. In the first place the condition has not received the attention it deserves. This is shown by the absence of any adequate discussion of it in most of the popular text-books of the day, and even in the best of them. And there is reason to believe that acute dilatation without pyloric obstruction is frequently overlooked by physicians and surgeons, probably because of lack of familiarity with its occurrence and its principal characteristics. H. Campbell Thomson's1 recent collection of cases and summary of the chief features will therefore undoubtedly prove useful. He has collected forty-four cases, which he divides roughly into five groups according to mode of origin: Those cases without apparent cause or lesion after death; those showing after death other definite lesions; those following surgical operations but without other lesions
