As we advance in our specialty we therefore increase in the number of operations, and there is no doubt that most of those have proved to be a lasting benefit to the world at large. I wish here to add and bring before the notice of this body several new methods showing the use and value of intubation of the larynx in connection with other operations.
My remarks upon these methods will be brief, and by way of illustration will cite a few cases upon which these operations have been performed. The following are some of the operations in which intubation by the above means can be made use of: Post-pharyngeal abscess, laryngeal abscess and cysts, syphilitic adhesion of the larynx by a web, in all operations about the cavity of the mouth where hæmorrhage is present, cleft palate, in all œdemata about the larynx, excessive hæmorrhages from the tonsils,
