Abstract

The history of the management of extra-uterine pregnancy, like every other conception which has finally resulted in good to the human race, begins with very crude—I might almost say utterly empirical manœuvres. Slowly it has emerged from its horribly uninviting chrysalis to its crawling caterpillar stage, which is almost passed, and its bright-winged life has now really begun. Passing over without mention the mistakes and blunders of those who used to evacuate the amniotic fluid, and those who once injected substances into the gestation sac, as well as that later and better procedure, elytrotomy, let us go at once to the discussion of the only two methods which now receive much recognition from the medical world, which are electricity and abdominal section. Eet me state clearly and distinctly in regard to the electric current in all its forms, that I believe it wrong in principle, dangerous in practice, and frequently
