Page 174 - I'm going, but I'm on my way," is fairly descriptive of the situation in which a majority of our teachers find themselves.
Page 232 - McBurney's point" may be of some diagnostic value. In McBurney's experience in every case "the seat of greatest pain, determined by the pressure of one finger, has been exactly between an inch and a half and two inches from the anterior superior spinous process of the ilium on a straight line drawn from the process to the umbilicus.
Page 63 - ... action of the silver nitrate upon the albuminous cement substance, forming an albuminate of silver. This assumption, advanced by His has been accepted by all writers. In approaching this subject I thought to prepare myself for the investigation by studying the chemical nature of silver albuminate. I was surprised, after spending some time in a literary search, to find no mention of silver albuminate in the most extensive works on chemistry. Surprise rose to amazement when one of the ablest chemists...
Page 211 - Foramen of Winslow. — The opening between the greater and lesser peritoneal cavities is in a way analogous to the fossa now under discussion.
Page 161 - Below, this space finally is limited by the phrenocolic ligament, which extends from the splenic flexure of the colon to the diaphragm.
Page 59 - ... and not due to its action on the edge of the cell, for the lines may be penciled out. He might have added that this in no wise influences the distance between the edges of the cells, for the increase in width of the line is due to deposits on top of the cells. The effect of light is a factor that has been systematically studied. Handling the tissues in an entirely dark room is difficult. An attempt to solve this problem led me to develop a new mode of using silver. Knowing that Ranvier had injected...

In other words, it seems possible that right duodenal hernias are caused by the covering over of the intestinal coils by the meson of the ascending colon, which afterwards becomes fixed, thus forming a permanent housing of the small intestines (Fig. 90). In early embryos one occasionally finds the cecum and its mesentery floating on the small intestines. Usually, GROSS ANATOMY OF THE PERITONEUM...
Page 232 - ... while the sudden exacerbation of violent diffuse abdominal pain is due to the involving of the peritoneum itself. I see nothing especially worthy of attention in the so-called McBurney point. Pain over the seat of pathology is certainly a natural feature, and generally the appendix lies under a point midway between the umbilicus and the anterior superior spine of the ileum. But it is not always so by any means, for I examined with great and anxious care, a short time ago, a young physician with...
Page 54 - ... by Cohnheim, their existence was almost universally regarded as proved, though no additional evidence had been adduced to strengthen the theory. That the existence of these structures as morphologic elements was never established upon a sound histologic basis may be gathered from the fact that very soon after they were first described there were not wanting investigators who regarded them as artificial products, due to the reagent used. Among the earlier writers to express this opinion may be...
Page 55 - Arnold, by his careful researches, aided greatly in strengthening the position of Cohnheim's theory, and more particularly the idea of the passage of the blood cells through preformed openings. It was he who first observed the blood cells actually to pass through the preformed openings, thus apparently adding demonstration to the theory. Arnold presents a cut showing a leucocyte in the act of passing through one of these openings. Lavdowsky likewise described the escape of leucocytes and illustrated...
