Seite 7 - THE HALF-YEARLY ABSTRACT OF THE MEDICAL SCIENCES. Being a Digest of the Contents of the principal British and Continental Medical Works; together with a Critical Report of the Progress of' Medicine and the Collateral Sciences.
Seite 93 - The effects produced by pressure are," says Dr. Walshe, " removal of existing adhesions, total cessation of pain, disappearance of swelling in the communicating lymphatic glands, gradual reduction of bulky masses to small, hard, flat patches, or rounded nodules (which appear to be, both locally and generally, perfectly innocuous), and in the most favourable cases total removal of the morbid production.
Seite 271 - April 21st, when, having thoroughly cleansed myself, I resumed my practice, and had no more puerperal fever. " The cases were not confined to a narrow space. The two nearest were half a mile from each other, and half that distance from my residence. The others were from two to three miles apart, and nearly that distance from my residence. There were no other cases in their immediate vicinity which came to my knowledge.
Seite 86 - There was a considerable enlargement of the lower end of the tibia, but the ankle-joint admitted of every motion, and was apparently sound. The skin was thin, tense, and closely adherent to the periosteum.

Seite 92 - 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 cauterisation ; in the twelve remaining...
Seite 334 - In every district in which fever returns frequently, and prevails extensively, there is uniformly bad sewerage, a bad supply of water, a bad supply of scavengers, and a consequent accumulation of filth...
Seite 334 - ... bad sewerage, a bad supply of water, a bad supply of scavengers, and a consequent accumulation of filth; and I have observed this to be so uniformly and generally the case, that I have been accustomed to express the fact in this way: — If you trace down the fever districts on a map, and then compare that map with the map of the commissioners of sewers, you will find that wherever the commissioners of sewers have not been, there fever is prevalent ; and, on the contrary, wherever they have been,...
Seite 274 - ... Society, in which a physician went, soon after performing an autopsy of a case of puerperal fever, to a woman in labor, who was seized with the same disease and perished. The forfeit of that error has been already paid. At a meeting of the Medical and Chirurgical Society before referred to, Dr. Merriman related an instance occurring in his own practice, which excites a reasonable suspicion that two lives were sacrificed to a still less dangerous experiment. He was at the examination of a case...
