Seite 160 - M. Recamier has employed compression upon a very large scale, and the more important part of his results is as follows: "Of one hundred cancerous patients, sixteen appeared to be incurable, and underwent only a palliative treatment : thirty were completely cured by compression alone, and twenty-one derived considerable benefit from it: fifteen were radically cured by extirpation alone, or chiefly by extirpation and pressure combined, and six by compression and cautérisai ion: in Ihc twelve remaining...
Seite 146 - that the solution of chloride of lime effected the absorption of a large tumour, in the course of some months, regarded by competent authorities as scirrhus, in a lady whose other breast had been extirpated for that disease. Not long after, she died of asthma from diseased lungs ; the scirrhous tubercle appearing not only in the chest, but in several of the abdominal viscera.
Seite 254 - ... made from over it upwards and forwards, an inch and a half in length in the mesial line, through the skin, cellular substance, and raphe, of the mylohyoid muscles. With the edge of the knife, but chiefly by its handle, way was made for the finger between the two genio hyoid and the two genio glossi muscles. A tenaculum was next passed through the apex of the tongue, by means of which it was drawn out of the mouth and held so, during the subsequent part of the operation by Mr. Mayo (Mr. Tuson,...
Seite 5 - It will be seen from the table on the following page, that cancer is synonymous anatomice with adventitious heterologous tissue.
Seite 120 - Much has been written on the influence of mental misery, sudden reverses of fortune, and habitual gloominess of temper on the deposition of carcinomatous matter. If systematic writers...
Seite 45 - M. Cruveilhier's doctrine embraces two essentially distinct propositions. First, he regards all heterologous formations, ' as the exclusive result of a successive deposition of morbid products in the cellular element of organs;' he believes that 'this cellular element is alone affected; that the proper tissue of organs is in itself incapable of undergoing any organic lesion, except hypertrophy and atrophy ; that at first rendered hypertrophous by the state of irritation existing in the neighbouring...
Seite 90 - Cancerous matter exists in a multitude of cases in the veins of the diseased part; now this is obviously a most favourable circumstance for its circulation with the returning blood. 2. The rapidity of the successive development of the disease in different organs, sometimes observed, seems only producible by the agency of a fluid which, like the blood, pervades them all. 3. The liver and lung, the two organs in which foreign bodies introduced into the circulation are almost invariably observed to...
Seite 255 - ... part of its course, perpendicularly downwards, then inclined mesial, and brought out at the incision in the neck. There were thus two ligatures, the four ends of which hung out of this wound : one of the loops was so disposed as to encircle the right half of the tongue at its basis beyond the tumour; the other was placed longitudinally on the upper surface of the tongue, longitudinally and obliquely below. Being tied, (and this was done as tightly as possible,) the diseased mass was circumscribed...
Seite 254 - The patient being seated, the head slightly extended, and the os hyoides felt, an incision was made from over it upwards and forwards, an inch and a half in length in the mesial line, through the skin, cellular substance, and raphe, of the mylohyoid muscles. With the edge of the knife, but chiefly by its handle, way was made for the finger between the two genio hyoid and the two genio glossi muscles. A tenaculum was next passed through the apex of the tongue, by means of which it was drawn out of...
Seite 102 - Cooper when the infant was eight months old ; at birth the eyeball was as large as a walnut. M. Cruveilhier has, on the other hand, known uterine cancer manifest itself at the advanced age of eighty-four. The general sense of authors on this point, however, is that the disease rarely occurs in early life, seldom originates in old age and is especially frequent in both sexes between the ages of thirty-five and fifty.
