Not illustrated. 1915 edition. Excerpt: ...under the symphysis, probably in the anterior inferior quadrant, although the shadow as a whole was above the line of the symphysis. The two heads of the instrument were seen fairly high up in the bladder, again suggesting a prostate with enlargement. The age of the patient precluded hypertrophy of the prostate. Inasmuch as the instrument was a catheter, there was no possibility of error as to what the relation of the two heads was to the floor and neck of the bladder and the middle point of the prostatic urethra. Conclusions. From such a brief study, the results must respect the instrument used, the anatomy of the bladder outlet, the general form of the bladder, and a comparison with the deductions offered by the preliminary report of a year ago. As to the double head catheter calipers used this year, one may say that it is obviously superior to the lead covered flexible instruments and to the bougiea-boule and curette previously adopted. Its two heads and neck at once reveal the position of the bladder floor, the neck and the prostatic urethra surrounded by the prostate gland. The method of Ailing the bladder and of withdrawing the catheter until dripping just stops, sets forth these anatomical facts with great and unmistakable definiteness. As to the position of the bladder outlet, it will be noticed that there are the high and the low group. The low group has the bladder outlet just above the symphysis, the neck crossed by the symphysis, and the prostate gland extending perhaps three cm. distally. This would make it lie practically behind the shadow of the symphysis. Cases I, II, III, IV, VII, X, XI, among the males, and XIII, XIV among the females may be so described. The high group show even the middle point of the prostatic urethra more
