Abstract

Abstract The weight, complexities, and expense of the suspension gallows and its table clamp have long presented a technical, psychological, and man-power difficulty.1 This has resulted in making use of the Lynch suspension apparatus more rare and has tended to confine its use to the larger institutions where a team of trained personnel has been developed to handle daily, weekly, or frequent cases. The situation has been hard on the occasional operator who, though well enough qualified to do this type of work, lacked the equipment or the team necessary to perform smoothly. This new device is therefore offered to help solve this problem.2 Since the development of the leverage principle in laryngoscopy,3 the leverage principle has made the exposure of the anterior commissure much easier. Such exposure now depends upon the power of the fulcrum and leverage of a worm and sprocket gear system rather than upon References 1. Le Jeune, F.
