PRACTICAL URETHROSCOPY WITH THE EXHIBITION OF A NEW INSTRUMENT.

PRACTICAL URETHROSCOPY WITH THE EXHIBITION OF A NEW INSTRUMENT. Urethroscopy has been practiced, by a few of our profession, since the first attempt to inspect the urethra was made by Bozzini of Frankfort at the beginning of this century, but it was not placed on a truly scientific basis until Desormeaux invented his instrument in 1853, and named it the endoscope. It was far from perfect, and since then many different varieties have been invented, some with the light reflected from without, and others with it placed within the tube. It is not my object to discuss the merits of all these different instruments. I will briefly mention two, but at best they are all far from satisfactory in the hands of most of us, and this is the true reason I believe why the endoscope has not been more generally adopted by the profession as a method of examination and treatment of all chronic urethral troubles.

Abstract

Urethroscopy has been practiced, by a few of our profession, since the first attempt to inspect the urethra was made by Bozzini of Frankfort at the beginning of this century, but it was not placed on a truly scientific basis until Desormeaux invented his instrument in 1853, and named it the endoscope. It was far from perfect, and since then many different varieties have been invented, some with the light reflected from without, and others with it placed within the tube. It is not my object to discuss the merits of all these different instruments. I will briefly mention two, but at best they are all far from satisfactory in the hands of most of us, and this is the true reason I believe why the endoscope has not been more generally adopted by the profession as a method of examination and treatment of all chronic urethral troubles.
