Page 390 - ... distal, or lower, levels of amputation, particularly to conserve the knee joint whenever feasible even when amputation is required because of vascular disease (Figure 4.1-16). For many years most general and vascular surgeons felt that amputations for vascular disease typically, or even always, should be performed at the junction of the middle and lower thirds of the thigh or even higher. It was true that such amputations generally healed reasonably rapidly, but very often the amputee was rehabilitated...
Page 399 - ... grows out from the skin, its top and sides developed into concentric scales, by which it is, as it were, shingled and slated. This outer layer is raised by another beneath, •which in its turn is elevated by a third, so that the section of a papilla resembles a pile of inverted cups, of which the centre is occupied by nuclei and the sides by more developed scales. Drying as it grows, the hardened extremity of this so-called
Page 119 - Skeleton. — A general conception of the 'plan of the skeleton may be formed by supposing two skeletons placed side by side, the arms nearest each other pointing backwards and palm to palm, and the corresponding legs with the toes turned backwards, and then each skeleton cut in a plane extending from the median line in front outwards to the right in one, and to the left in...

The opening in the base above described is continuous with a line of old and united fracture that extends through the supra-orbitary ridge, in the situation of the foramen, inclines toward, and then from the median line, and terminates in an extensive fracture that was caused by the bar as it came out through the top of the head. This fracture is situated in the left half of the frontal bone,...

Page 733 - In this subject (an old woman) the limb was flexed a little, shortened to the extent of three inches, and inverted so that the patella faced inward ; the limb was in slight abduction, and could neither be everted nor brought to the median line. The trochanter was felt to be much thickened. Upon examination of this exceptional specimen, the neck of the bone was found to be firmly united at right angles with the shaft, which was split open and spread so widely as to receive the whole impacted neck,...
Page 454 - Worthen. is a more or less compressed sphere, from threefourths of an inch to an inch and a half in diameter, composed of the same material as the matrix, and marked on the surface by shallow pits that are usually six sided, though the number of sides may vary from four to seven. The pits vary also in size; although the relations are not absolutely constant, still in general the larger pits belong to the larger...
Page 146 - ... blood. One piece of the skull had been broken out in fragments ; another piece was raised and thrown back, like a door, the scalp serving as a hinge ; and on the opposite side of the wound there was another fracture and an elevation. The globe of the left eye was partially protruded from its orbit, the left side of the face was more prominent than the right. The opening in the skull was two inches wide by three and a half long, and the brain was hanging in shreds on the hair. The pulsation of...
Page 150 - ... and the pipe was driven through his head, entering at the junction of the middle and outer thirds of the right supra-orbitary ridge, and emerging near the junction of the left parietal, occipital, and temporal bones. One of his fellow-miners saw him upon his hands and knees, and struggling as if to rise ; and, going to his assistance, he placed his knee upon his chest, supported his head with one hand and with the other withdrew the pipe. This last projected about equally from the front and back...
