breast which is similar to that of the author as regards the
essential point, the anaesthetizing of the brachial plexus. His
method differs from that above described in that he does not induce
conduction-anaesthesia of the intercostal nerves for anaesthetizing
the tissues of the mamma and the muscles, but starting from three
points below and two above the mammary gland infiltrates the field,
that is to say, injects round and under the tumour. Finally he

uses 300 c.c. of o'5 per cent. novocain-suprarenin solution for the
entire anaesthesia. Local Anaesthesia in Abdominal Operations. In

anaesthesia have not kept pace with those made in other parts of
the body. It is certainly true that it may be used satisfactorily
in many abdominal operations, but in the case of extensive
operations which have to be performed completely painlessly, it is
at present not applicable. Isolated resections of the bowel and
stomach were undertaken years ago by various surgeons under local
anaesthesia. It is commonly employed for gastrostomies and
colostomies, and in some cholecystostomies. The applicability of
local anaesthesia in these cases always depends on the physical and
psychical condition of the patients. To ensure better results, the
usual practice is to administer morphia before the operation, as is
the case, generally speaking, before all more extensive local
