Abstract

The operation of nephrorrhaphy dates back only to 1881, when Hahn,1 of Berlin, introduced the operation as a substitute for nephrectomy in the treatment of movable kidney. In this country the subject has been ably discussed by Edebohls,2 who perfected and published a systematized technique for the operation. Senn3 presented a method of anchoring the movable kidney, the essential feature of which consists in the substitution of gauze packing for sutures to hold the kidney in place until the formation of granulation tissue shall cause permanent adhesions of the kidney in its new position, the wound being left open to heal by granulation. Deaver4 has adopted the principle of Senn's operation, rejecting sutures in favor of gauze packing and a granulating wound. Morris5 may be considered the most prominent advocate of the operation in England. He employs silk sutures to fasten the kidney to the
