Abstract

The American Gynecological Journal, April, contains a letter by Dr. A. H. Cordier, of Macpherson, Kan., recounting his recent visit among the gynecic operators of Philadelphia. He finds with them a low rate of mortality in abdominal work; probably as low as can be shown in any other city in the world. Among the others, Dr. Joseph Price is able to quote a mortality of less than 3 per centum in the abdominal sections of last year. In 1891, he had performed—up to the time that the visit of Dr. Cordier was made—220 such operations, with five deaths. In this list is included ovariotomies, hysterectomies, intestinal resecttions, as well as others of less hazardous nature. These figures, together with the opportunities the writer had of assisting at the operating table of Dr. Price, indicate very clearly to his mind that the methods of Dr. Price have approached as nearly to
