Abstract

The author states that his volume of 350 pages is a part of "A Text-Book of Surgery for Practitioners of Medicine." As a text-book article, there is much in it that could be eliminated and much that could be condensed with advantage, particularly on the subject of appendicitis, for the complete title of the work is "Appendicitis and Other Diseases About the Appendix." With some of the author's statements we can not agree; for instance, "The examination of the patient forms only a small part of the material on which the diagnosis (of appendicitis) is made." On the contrary, the physical examination of the patient plays a very large and important part in the diagnosis in a large proportion of the cases. The statement that "The appendages of the intestinal tract, especially the appendix vermiformis, the gall-bladder, and Meckel's diverticulum are traps laid for the purpose of catching and disseminating
