The author has modestly entitled his monograph, "Some Clinical Uses of the Duodenal Tube," limiting himself to those he has actually tried, and especially fractional analysis of gastric contents, bile drainage, and functional tests of the liver. He has, however, tried to make his review as complete as possible. The data presented are chiefly derived from American research workers, such as Einhorn, Lyon and Meltzer, and among the references a great many are to The Journal. In the light of present views held in this country as to the value of bile drainage, the author may seem unduly optimistic, and the same criticism applies to his discussion of liver tests and gastric analysis. Altogether, he has tried, however, to be fair and conservative in his statements. It is a pity more care was not shown in proofreading to avoid misspelling such names as those of Beaumont and Benedict.
