Abstract

In a previous paper4 was presented a detailed preliminary report on a new method for the transfusion of blood. At that time we expressed the opinion that the accepted methods of transfusion then in vogue were not adapted to general use and were not highly satisfactory even in the hands of those skilled in surgical technic and exprienced in blood-vessel surgery. Evidence that others shared this opinion is afforded by a survey of recent literature, which contains numerous descriptions of ingenious devices contrived for the purpose of making this important operation one which can be performed by any competent surgeon. Especially deserving of mention, in addition to the well-known cannula of Crile, are the devices of Brewer and Leggett,5 of Janeway6 and of Sorese,7 all of whom have given valuable reports of their studies in this field.
