Revised and Expanded by the Author,
W. W. WAGSTAFFE, F.R.C.S.,
RESIDENT ASSISTANT-SURGEON TO, AND JOINT-LECTURER ON ANATOMY AT,
ST. THOMAS'S HOSPITAL.
The present edition of these “ Outlines” has been carefully revised, and many additions have been made, especially in Surgical Pathology, so as to include the most recent investigations in this and allied subjects.
Some papers have been added to the Section on “Emergencies and doubtful cases ;” and a short Section has been devoted to the Surgical Anatomy of some important structures and regions ; whereby it is hoped that the volume will prove more acceptable to the Practitioner as well as useful to the Student.
The Author desires to acknowledge the valuable assistance afforded to him by his friend and former pupil, Mr. Wagstaffe, in the preparation of this Edition ; and may especially refer to the papers on the “Method of Observation,” the “Diagnosis of Joint Disease,” the “Use of the Thermometer in Surgery,” and “ Hints on Minor Surgery,”-as contributions from his pen.
For further information in relation to “ Visceral Lesions," occasional reference is made to the recently published Lectures of the Author on this subject, which were delivered when he had the honour of holding the appointment of Hunterian Professor of Surgery and Pathology in the College of Surgeons.
