Page 93 - This view of the subject may assist in removing the futile objections of some who have, without due consideration I am convinced, opposed my plan of frequent, often daily, scarification of the gums, to whom I would say, as my sole reply : Better scarify the gums unnecessarily one hundred times than allow the accession of one fit or convulsion from the neglect of this operation, which is equally important in its results and trifling in its character. " And it is not merely the prominent and tense...
Page 99 - In 67 months she was tapped 66 times : Had taken away 240 gallons of water, Without ever repining at her case, Or ever fearing the operation.

Page 162 - ... an arched form of the lumbar part of the spine, which cannot be straightened so long as the thigh is straight, or on a line with the patient's trunk. When the limb is raised or bent upwards upon the pelvis, the back rests flat upon the bed ; but so soon as the limb is allowed to descend, the back becomes arched as before...
Page 92 - ... as the occasion to which I have referred may require; and no idea of this important measure can be more inadequate to its real value.

Page 105 - It is admitted by every one that in the greater number of cases of fistulae in ano there is an inner opening to the gut as well as the outer opening ; and I am satisfied that the inner opening always exists, because I scarcely ever fail to find it, now that I look for it in the proper place and seek it carefully. I have, in a dead body, examined the parts where fistulae had existed several times, and in every instance 1 have found an inner opening to it.
Page 101 - A patient who is taking arsenic, especially in pretty large doses, ought to be very carefully watched. At first you may see him every two or three days, and then every day ; and as soon as the arsenic begins to operate as a poison, leave it off. When this effect is produced, the disease of the tongue generally gets well, but at any rate leave off the arsenic, and the poisoning will not go too far ; it will do no harm. If, after a time, you find that the disease is relieved, but not entirely cured,...
