Abstract

Endometritis, for the purpose of discussing the use of the curette in its treatment, is best divided into three varieties—catarrhal, septic and gonorrheal. Catarrhal endometritis is the form of pelvic disease most frequently induced by improper habits of life, consequently the one most amenable to constitutional or medical treatment. A large percentage of cases occur in unmarried women. In the society girl it is produced by the nightly exposure of the arms and a large portion of the chest, whereby the blood is driven into the interior of the body, congesting the uterus along with other organs; the tight corset, displacing the abdominal organs and interfering with the action of the heart and lungs; the numerous meals at irregular hours of stimulating and indigestible food, the position assumed in dancing and the exposure and lack of rest during menstruation. In her less fortunate sisters, the school teacher and the shop
