Minneapolis, May 1, 1905.
To the Editor:
—In performing a perineorrhaphy on a very anemic woman recently. I used a one to one thousand solution of sterilized adrenalin chlorid in the vagina and a practically bloodless operation was performed. The mucous membrane of the vagina blanched almost immediately and the anesthetizer reported a marked improvement in the heart's action. Healing occurred without any drawback. Have any similar cases been reported? If so, are there any contra-indications?
