Abstract

In doing submucous resections of the nasal septum, I have many times felt the need of a combined dissector and suction cannula. The only instrument of this type on the market, as far as I have been able to find, is one devised by Dr. Walker of Springfield, Mass.

The new dissector which I am offering is much the same size and shape as Freer's single point elevator, except that the dissecting blade is a little narrower and the curve a little flatter than those in Freer's instrument.

The new dissector is simple in construction, being made of hollow tubular steel
