A sectional meeting of the American College of Surgeons was held in London in May, 1954. Many of the members attending the London meeting also had the pleasure of visiting surgical clinics in Paris, Lyon, and Strasbourg, France. We were very much interested in the surgical work in all the cities and arranged with many of these surgeons to send some of their scientific contributions to this journal from time to time. In this issue Professor Mallet-Guy, of Lyon, is reporting his experiences with sphincterotomy or splanchnicectomy in the treatment of chronic relapsing pancreatitis, a field of surgical research in which he has had considerable experience.
