1881 Excerpt: ...growing larger, and the process of replacing it
will become more and more difficult, while the life of the foetus
is greatly endangered. Peoria, 111. J. L. H. For the Peoria Medical
Monthly. Catarrh of the Bladder in the Female--Treated Successfully
hy Dilatation of the Urethra. I had a very interesting case a short
time since, and as the treatment was so eminently successful,

the urethra and paralyzed the sphincter muscle so as to very

days, and my patient has not had a semblance of a pain since. I saw
her this morning, three weeks from the date of operation, and under
the influence of tonics and a generous diet does not look like the
same woman. A. V. Banes, M. D. St. Joseph, Mo., October 2, 1880.
