Original Article

Home Care Treatment in Arthritis

If doctors would emphasize the proper management of the arthritic patient from a physical standpoint, and de-emphasize cortisone and all other drugs and regard them as adjuncts in treatment, this country would have fewer cripples—given cooperative patients.

Original Article

Lumbar Disk Surgery in Patients Over 50 Years of Age

The author demonstrates that age does not disbar the patient from surgery in the treatment of the lumbar disk syndrome if the indications exist. He finds no ready answer to the almost uniformly good results.

Original Article

The Effects of Radiation Therapy on the Ear: With Particular Reference to Radiation Otitis Media

In the massive irradiation of malignant bearing tissues, attention must also be directed to changes in contiguous structures. The deleterious effects of such therapy upon the ear are discussed in this paper.

They discuss indications for hysterectomy in the younger women, and have shown a low incidence of…

Original Article

They believe, unless clear-cut contraindications exist, that surgical exploration provides…
