It is some years since we who are interested in the surgical and medical aspects of lesions of the gastrointestinal tract have had the opportunity to meet in joint session to discuss and consider subjects of mutual interest and concern. In the period of time allotted to me I shall confine my remarks to a discussion of certain advances in the diagnosis and treatment of lesions of the stomach and duodenum that have taken place in this period.
An additional duty has been imposed on us at this time to evaluate and apply the observations made by medical personnel of the armed forces to the civilian population, and the continuation of the care of those members of the military forces who are returning home with lesions of the upper digestive tract.
