Abstract

The operation known as trachelorrhaphy or Emmet's operation, has been in vogue for thirty-five years. It has had a brilliant history and has won honors for the originator wherever gynecology is practiced, but like many good things it is not only capable of improvement, but has of late been quite generally superseded by operations in the nature of amputation; plastic work looking toward removal of diseased tissue, restoration of organic function, and remodeling of the cervix to as nearly normal outlines as possible. These operations are commonly known as amputation of the cervix, but only for want of a better name, since it suggests the crudeness of the former excision of the neck of the uterus, and in no way conveys all that is comprehended in the newer work. There is a wave of interest abroad concerning these improved methods, and many reports of admirable work are being made in
