The Principles and Practice of Surgery.

The Principles and Practice of Surgery. One can not help picking up a new edition of this old favorite without a feeling of pleasure, like that of unexpectedly meeting an old friend. In this edition there is an excellent chapter on surgical bacteriology by Dr. C.B. Nancrede, which is about the only feature of the work that will strike the reader as materially differing from former editions. The pathology in general does not bring the text to the accepted standard, and in modern practice the recent procedures are not mentioned. The author knows what tuberculosis is, for he correctly describes it on page 471, but one looks in vain for the application of that knowledge in the chapter on diseases of the joints. Iodoformization is not mentioned as a means of treatment. In excision of the hip, temporary resection of the trochanter is not mentioned, and indeed the only case where osteoplastic resection is mentioned http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
