Gonangiectomy.

Gonangiectomy. Dunning, Ill., Sept. 22, 1898. To the Editor: —In one of my recent articles published in the Journal I used the word gonangiectomy, meaning by it an excision of a portion of the vas deferens. As it seems to be a new word, and since I have had a number of inquiries as to its root words or derivatives, I take this means of answering, and give first, the Greek, then the English equivalent, with diacritic markings for pronunciation; then the word as compounded, with its definition, "Lidell & Scott's Unabridged Greek-English Dictionary." The translation may not be absolutely literal: γονή, gona: semen. άγγε[unk]ον, aggeion: a vessel. έκτομή, ectoma: excision, or cutting away. As compounded, gonangiectomy: excision of a vessel carrying semen. Very respectfully, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
