Dr. Groedel, of Bad Nauheim, says that this treatment is contraindicated: 1. In cases of chronic parenchymatous nephritis, and in cases of secondary contracted kidney in which there is from time to time an increase in the albuminuria, indicating an exacerbation of the parenchymatous affection. 2. In cases of contracted kidney with marked circulatory disturbances, congestion, dyspnea, etc. 3. In cases of contracted kidney accompanied by a high degree of arteriosclerosis, and, finally, in cases in which there is an apoplectic tendency and in which there has been an attack of pulmonary edema. Only those cases of contracted kidney in which the circulatory disturbances are mild are benefited by the treatment.
