Abstract

In the mass of literature flooding the medical periodicals during the past few years, the technic and operative mortality of the surgery of the gall-bladder have been considered exhaustively. Final results have rarely been alluded to. This is natural during the developmental period of any surgical procedure, and results can be determined only after the lapse of considerable time. Enough has been proved so that all can agree that in the larger number of cases of gall-bladder disease in which the treatment is surgical, the results are ideal; the patients are cured and pass quickly from a state of suffering and invalidism into a condition of health and comfort. There can, therefore, be no difference of opinion regarding the great benefits obtained in this comparatively new field. But not all are cured. Some are not benefited, and occasionally one is found whose sufferings after operation are as bad or even
