To the Editor:
—On page 129 of the Archives for July, 1954, is an article by Abraham J. Lanchner, M.D., entitled "A New Preplaced Corneal Suture." At the end of the article is a solitary reference to S. Baldino, who is credited with having devised a suture technique of a somewhat similar character.If Dr. Lanchner consults the Acta concilium ophthalmologicum, 1950, Vol. 2, p. 1090, he will find a suture technique of a character exactly similar to that which he describes as new.I have used this method now for several years and have every reason to agree with his statement that it "has certain advantages over other sutures."
