This is the eighth installment in the loose-leaf form for insertion in Volume IV, "Otosclerosis." It covers the literature for the years 1954 and 1955 and is published by the Central Bureau of Research of the American Otological Society, Incorporated.* As in previous years, it also contains a few abstracts not obtainable in time for the prior index.
Both original articles and abstracts in the various medical publications have been utilized in preparing this index.
The titles of articles are given in English and the names of the mediums of publication in the language of the original.
Only the opinions of the authors are given, and no endorsement or condemnation should be inferred because of the selection of the articles abstracted. During recent years so many papers on the fenestration operation have been published and they have become so repetitive in character that we have abstracted but a few.
