Abstract

The exhaustive work and intensive studies made in the last decade on the subject of pyloric stenosis has been productive of an almost complete understanding of the disease. The age and sex incidence is typical, the symptom complex is unusually constant, the differential diagnosis affords few difficulties and the treatment is limited practically to one procedure. There is a growing conviction that early surgical intervention is to be advised, except in a very small percentage of the cases. The etiology of the disease alone is shrouded in obscurity. Dr. Holt's paper, read before the New York Academy of Medicine in April, 1914, covered the subject from a medical point of view, and to Dr. William A. Downes should be given credit for the most complete discussion of the surgical treatment, his latest paper having been recently read before the Southern Surgical and Gynecological Congress at Cincinnati.
