This little volume consists of the Hunterian Lectures for 1906. It deals chiefly with the end-results of operations on the stomach, for ulcer of the stomach, benign obstruction of the pylorus and cancer of the stomach. The author has displayed a great deal of energy and zeal in personally following up cases, in order to determine the end-result and in getting direct and personal communications from other operators concerning their end-results. The deductions may be accepted, therefore, as a good presentation of the subject up to that time. Symptoms and diagnosis are not touched on, but in a short appendix the author gives his own technic of preparing a patient for operation, of performing the operation and of the after-treatment.
