This is a thesis for the medical doctorate from the University of Buenos Aires. It is a well written discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of the several types of operation for resection of the stomach. There are many good illustrations showing the roentgenologic appearance of the stomach and jejunum after operation. There are reports of a number of cases of subtotal resection. Dr. Viacava concluded that the Polya and Hoffmeister-Finsterer operations have the least mortality and are the best today for gastric resection.
