Excerpt from New York Lancet: February, 1901
In a recent case coming under my observation of a young multipara suffering from chronic ovar itis on the left side, with prolapse of the organ, and extreme retroversion with adhesions, which was attended with pronounced neurasthenia. I removed the diseased, inﬂamed, and prolapsed ovary, stitched the uterus to the abdominal wall by silkworm-gut suture, which passed through the abdominal wall, and was fastened to a large, ﬂat button at the lower angle of the abdominal incision, so that it could be removed, and ligated the right Fallopian tube, for the purpose of pre venting further conception.
