The purpose of this book is to familiarize Spanish-speaking physicians with the low, cervical cesarean section. The author first reviews the history of the development of the cervical operation and discusses nearly every type of cervical cesarean section both extraperitoneal and intraperitoneal. In addition there is a description accompanied by illustrations of the recent exteriorization operation of Portes, which is a modification of the Gottschalk operation. Not only are the different forms of the operation discussed but also such matters as anesthesia, extraction of the fetus, tamponade of the uterus, sterilization and drainage. Among the indications for the operation the author considers not only contracted pelvis but also placenta praevia, eclampsia, prolapse of the umbilical cord, cervical cancer and transverse presentations. The book is written in a clear and simple style, the type is large and distinct, and the illustrations are instructive. Mention is made of Wetterwald's recent review on
