Abstract

Mr. McKay was a co-worker with Christopher Martin under the late Lawson Tait. His training, though supplemented by continental observation, is distinctly British, and his books reflect the methods in vogue in Britain in the preparation and post-operative management of celiotomies. As American operators are now closely in touch with continental surgeons, they will doubtless be interested in the viewpoint of the British laparotomist transplanted, though he be, to antipodal shores. The object of Mr. McKay has been to prepare for the beginner in abdominal technic, a work so circumstantial and minute in its method as to take the place of a hospital interneship, as far as possible. He has certainly brought together a remarkable amount of elementary information, much of which will be of value to the experienced surgeon, while the frequent references to individual cases gives a touch of concreteness to theoretical statement.
