Former histologic studies of the stomach mucosa have been based chiefly on the examination of postmortem material. Later investigators have introduced fixing fluids into the stomach at various periods after death in order to prevent self-digestion of the stomach mucosa. There are on record the results of examinations of stomachs immediately after capital punishment (Kaufmann1). Reports of the results of examinations of stomachs resected for cancer (Matti2), or of examinations of parts of stomachs removed during gastro-enterostomy (Heyrovsky3) have also appeared at various times. Only during the last few years have surgeons treated ulcers of the stomach and duodenum by gastrectomy. Stoerk,4 Konjetzny,5 Moszkowicz6 and Orator7 have availed themselves of the surgical material and have made comprehensive reports of their observations.
