To the Editor: There is little new under the sun, and otolaryngology is certainly no exception to this rule.
In the September 1965 issue of the Archives A. G. Gibb describes his use of what he calls a "vein graft cylinder." I saw this precisely similar technique used by Mr. W. O. Lodge, in Halifax, England, when I was his Registrar in 1953-1955. I don't remember Mr. Lodge claiming originality for the idea even then.
The results were excellent.
