Nonsurgical Trauma to the Extrahepatic Bile Ducts

An eighteen year experience in the management of trauma to the extrahepatic bile ducts is presented. The management of these 43 patients represents a large series for one to base adequate treatment of this uncommon injury.

Article

Blocking of Beta Adrenergic Receptors in the Urinary Bladder Using Sotalol

This study confirms the presence of sympathetic beta adrenergic receptors in the bladder which may be of significance in the future management of urinary retention and bladder atony.

Article

Symposium Chemical Automation Including Indications, Hazards, Interpretation, and Quality Control

Automation in the analysis of patients and their problems is clearly on the horizon, to rise higher with the passage of years. Doctors must train themselves to work with “machines”—the impact of the “machine” is not to be gainsaid.

Article

Influence of Morphine on Muscle Relaxants in Anesthetized Dogs

This experimental work indicates that morphine and droperidol-fentanyl when given with the relaxant gallamine can have an additive depressive effect.

Article

Positive Contrast Ventriculography

Though toxic effects have been cited in the use of this contrast medium, the authors believe it offers the best means of outlining the third ventricle. This is essential to stereotaxic surgery.

Two-Plate Fixation of Fractures of the Femoral Shaft

For spiral or comminuted fractures of the femoral shaft, pathologic or for nonunion or malunion, fixation by two strong plates offers satisfactory management. It permits earlier ambulation and development of satisfactory range of motion.

Article

Monitoring Massive Fluid Therapy in Infants

Much more has been written about the maintenance of homeostasis in adults than in infants. The balance is still more critical in the latter than in the former. The authors outline their experiences and methods used for monitoring various parameters in infants.

Article

Prescribing of Low Dioptric Powers in Spectacles

The authors review the indications for correction of what appear to be insignificant degrees of refractive error.

Article

General Practice in the United States Today

The author looks into the future with the development of a Board of Family Practice and an expansion of residencies in this specialty.

LuteOma Of Pregnancy: Recurrent or Persistent?

Though the authors agree that these tumors are not true neoplasms, they postulate that such hyperplastic lesions may occur in preexisting lesions.

Experience with the Use of the Macintosh Prosthesis in Knees of Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis

The management of the painful and nonfunctioning knee in rheumatoid arthritis has not been successful by surgical procedures. The use of this prosthesis has had a modicum of success if the selection of cases was proper.

Article

Thiazide Diuretics and Control of Diabetes Mellitus

This study confirms the fact that the exhibition of thiazide diuretics in the management of certain conditions in diabetic patients not uncommonly results in an adverse effect upon the control of diabetes. It is not of serious degree generally, and is reversible upon discontinuance of the diuretic.

Article

Complications in Surgery and Their Management

Article

Pin Tract Osteomyelitis

The authors have found that infection and drainage varies greatly from patient to patient. They believe the use of the os calcis for placement of a pin for traction is attended by more of this complication than the use of the tibia.

Article

The Use of Methoxyflurane (Penthrane) as an Analgesic and Anesthetic in Obstetrics

The authors consider the advantages and disadvantages of this relatively new anesthetic in its use in obstetrics. It has much to offer apparently. Because of the need to depend upon nonphysician anesthetists, the authors have described a method of using this drug as a safe anesthetic for obstetric delivery.

Current Concepts in the Pharmacologic Approach to Shock

The more recent approach to the treatment of shock is to reduce vasoconstriction and thereby to restore perfusion of tissues at the cellular level. Thus, symptomatic treatment and maintenance of blood pressure are of a more secondary importance.
