Not illustrated. 1885 edition. Excerpt: ...line of body weight-pressure through the middle of the lower tibial articulation, is taken from a perfectly formed limb, and how few are perfectly formed? I am sure that in both general and special pathology, sufficient regard has not been paid to the fact that the majority of individuals are anything but perfectly formed, even in their normal condition; and that these primary imperfections may be im portant predisposing causes for various maladies and deformities. In the normal state, on standing with the feet together, the femur and tibia form an angle open externally, the femur being inclined inwards, while the tibia is almost vertical, and the greater the width of the pelvis the less open becomes the femoro-tibial angle, for the inward projection of the lower end of the femur is more marked. This is very noticeable in well developed women, but is partly concealed by the greater relative amount of subcutaneous fat in the thighs, especially at their upper and inner parts. Degrees.--In atonic statical cases (i.e. those caused through long standing, walking, and wrongly directed pressure in delicate subjects) there are commonly three stages and grades of the deformity. In they?w/stage, there is stretching of the internal lateral ligament through the altered direction of the axis of pressure towards the inner side of the joint, and Mickulicz has found this internal ligament tense and hypertrophied, instead of relaxed, and Owen and Linhart have made similar observations. The last named observer found the external lateral ligament lengthened, but this is quite exceptional. Probably the crucial ligaments, especially the posterior portion attached to the internal condyle, is also stretched. Lannelongue has found the posterior crucial...

Excerpt from Traumatic Separation of the Epiphyses; The Skiagraphic Atlas; Bodily Deformities, Vol. 1 of 2: Including the Anatomy of the Epiphyses, the Pathological Anatomy, Symptoms, Treatment, and Results of Traumatic Separations; Showing the Development of the Bones of the Wrist and Hand Mr. President and Gentlemen, At the commencement of the Twentieth Century I have no doubt that a brief review of surgical progress during the past hundred years will be acceptable to many of our younger members present this evening. Although I cannot with any appropriateness choose some subject in illustration of the great work achieved by the eminent man whose memory we meet to celebrate to-day, that work having been so ably dealt with by many distinguished orators in this Chair, yet it seems to me that the passing away of one great period of time and the commencement of another is an occasion which may very fitly be marked by some such celebration as the present.

From the evidence before the sub-committee they are convinced that by far the most important factor in the safe administration of anaesthetics is the experience which has been acquired by the administrator. In many cases the anaesthetisa tion completely transcends the operation in gravity and importance, and to ensure success, particularly in these cases, It IS absolutely essential that an anaesthetist of large experi ence Should conduct the administration.
