Description

Excerpt from Transactions of the New York Academy of Medicine, 1893, Vol. 9 Early in the Spring of 1890 I began this investigation, and from that time to the present the bulk of the work has been done by Dr. P. H. Fitzhugh, house surgeon to the Hospital for the Ruptured and Crippled. We succeeded in getting the names of 499 patients who have applied for treatment at the Hospital for the Ruptured and Crippled Since 1868, or who have applied at my Clinic in the New York Polyclinic Since 1882, or at my office Since 1884. None have been included in this list who came under treatment Since November 14th, 1887. An exception might be made of the few who have applied for the cor rection of deformity, or for the relief of an old Sprain of the disabled knee. A few of this number are at present under observation, but are not receiving any active treat ment. Perhaps many others might have been included in this list but for the lack of uniformity in nomenclature during the early days of my hospital life. For instance, the diagnosis of synovitis or peri-arthritis was made, when the cases subsequently proved to be ostitis.
