This is essentially an elaboration of the monograph on the same subject which Winter wrote with the assistance of W. Benthin for Halban and Seitz's monumental work, "Biologie und Pathologie des Weibes." The forty-six pages of bibliography which appear in the original monograph are omitted from the present book, but a few new subjects have been added and H. Naujoks assisted in the work. This book is based on Winter's extensive personal experience. The indications and technic of every obstetric operation are given in great detail. Likewise every kind of injury to both mother and child which may result from these operations is discussed thoroughly. In many sections of the book, Winter gives an analysis of his own statistics. In his hands, spontaneous deliveries had one-third the mortality of forceps deliveries, one-fourth that of breech extractions and one-fifth that of internal version. The section on forceps operations is thoroughly worked
