Excerpt from The American Medical Times, Vol. 5: Being a Weekly Series of the New York Journal of Medicine; July to December, 1862
Bennett was, I think, the first to regard prolapsus Of the uterus as very rarely strue descent of the uterus, but as almost always a hypertrophy or engorgement Of the uterine neck; to remedy which, he recommended issues to be made upon it with Vienna paste, cauterizations, the actual cautery, leeches, scarifications, etc; in short, any and all means to produce resolution, and, thereby, restoration. In 1848 M. Hugier performed amputation for the same purpose with success. L'hsaa Operations were made with the bistoury, and were rendered formidable by abundant haemorrhage. Chassaig nae repeating it with the ecraseur has avoided this serious complication. One of his amputated cervices weighed one ounce and aquarter (3 j. 3 iij. Gr. No fatal results of the Operation have, however, been reported.
