Page 131 - ... operation, difficult on the right, must be deemed impracticable on the left subclavian. For the great depth from the surface at which this vessel is placed, the direct course which it runs in ascending to the top of the pleura, the sudden descent which it makes from this to sink under the protection of the clavicle, and the danger of including in the same ligature the eighth pair of nerves, the internal jugular vein, or the carotid, which...
Page 299 - Wilson described as the tendinous origin of his muscle, and from which he supposed the fibres descended to surround the urethra, which they really do not. From the median tendinous line in the upper part of the urethra the fibres pass outwards on each side, converging towards the centre, where they form a leg, as I term it, of muscular fibres. On the under surface the same thing takes place ; and a leg on each side being thus formed from the superior and inferior fibres running from each half of...
Page 299 - One shows the membranous part of the urethra surrounded by a well-defined muscle. On the upper part there is a central median line of tendon, which runs backwards to be inserted into the fascia covering the upper surface of the prostate ; and again forwards on the urethra through the triangular ligament to be inserted in front of it near the union of the corpora cavernosa. On the under part a similar tendinous line is to be observed, which is attached backwards to the fascia underneath the apex of...
Page 131 - Colles says, to lay bare the right subclavian artery before it reaches the scaleni, will not be found difficult by any surgeon possessed of a steady hand and a competent knowledge of anatomy; but I fear, that, with the utmost dexterity, much difficulty will be experienced in passing and tying the ligature around it, even in the most favourable case. This operation, difficult on the right, must be deemed impracticable on the left subclavian artery; for the great depth from the surface at which this...
Page 530 - Poupart's ligament and midway between the anterior superior spine of the ilium and the spine of the pubes.
Page 255 - It is oblique in its direction, being attached to the posterior wall, from the left side of the second lumbar vertebra to the right iliac fossa.
Page 299 - ... the centre, where they form a leg, as I term it, of muscular fibres. On the under surface the same thing takes place; and a leg on each side being thus formed from the superior and inferior fibres running from each half of the Urethra, they pass outwardly, that is transversely across the perinaeum, to be inserted into the ascending ramus of the ischium a little below its junction with the descending ramus of the pubis on each side. These attachments are cut off in this preparation, but when I...
Page 299 - The muscle on its upper surface is covered by fascia descending from the pubes which adheres to it, and this I take to be what Mr. Wilson described as the tendinous origin of his muscle, and from which he supposed the fibres descended to surround the urethra, which they really do not. From the median tendinous line in the upper part of the urethra the fibres pass outwards on each side, converging towards the centre, where they form a leg, as I term it, of muscular fibres.
Page 216 - ... from the anterior superior spinous process of the ilium to the tubercle of the inner condyle of the femur, marks the spot at which the ligature should be applied.
Page 105 - Ardea consist of 5 or 6 cells, which open into one common duct, disposed in two circular masses, one on the anterior and the other on the posterior surface of the cardiac cavity ; something in the manner of those of the Cormorant.
