As house surgeon at the Emergency Hospital, it has been my privilege to see and to attend a large number of head injuries, of which some have been very serious. The attitude of some of our best surgeons regarding early operative interference in these cases has prompted me to write this article, the purpose of which is to bring out a few points in the treatment of head injuries accompanied by intracranial hemorrhage. The point which I wish to emphasize is the necessity of prompt surgical interference under certain conditions and the probable result when the surgeon waits for the development of focal symptoms. As an illustration, I wish to cite three cases which were recently treated at the Emergency Hospital. For these cases I am indebted to Drs. Bading and Reineking attending surgeons to the hospital.
