This volume is a compilation of the papers read before the 1950 session of the Forum on Fundamental Surgical Problems of the American College of Surgeons and is the first publication in a single volume of this material. It is not a record of the transactions of the Forum, in that the discussions on the papers are not included.
The Forum was developed so that those investigating surgical problems might have a place to present their studies before a body of surgeons. Hence, the material included is a report on research as applied to current surgical problems. A wide variety of subjects is covered, ranging through problems in surgery of the chest, esophagus, stomach, neurosurgery, etc. One hundred thirty-four papers are published. The authors have presented their material in condensed form, having been asked to limit their material to 3,000 words. Fifty-four additional papers are published in abstract only. The
