Among the most common diseases of the abdominal cavity may be mentioned those of the biliary ducts, and of this class cholelithiasis is the most frequent. In fact, so common is this condition that in several thousand postmortems no less than 7 per cent. of cases with gall-stones were found, and it is a curious conclusion to which some clinicians have arrived, that as these cases did not present any evidence of the presence of the stones, it proves that the majority of those suffering with gall-stones will get well if left alone.
