Excerpt from Transactions of the Southern Surgical and Gynecological Association, Vol. 9: Ninth Session, Held at Nashville, Tenn., November 10, 11, and 12, 1896 Another objection to the vaginal method, in a large way, is for cancer of the uterus. Those of us who have Operated for cancer of the uterus feel that the only chance of curing the case, especially in a cancer of the cervix proper (not the cauliﬂower growth or cancer of the body of the uterus, but the more com mon one of cancer of the cervix proper) is to keep away from the cervix; and, unless we do this, there is no reason to expect a radical cure. In attacking these cases through the vagina the usual percentage of recurrences is about one hundred. We can not adopt the vaginal route with the expectation of doing as good work as when we Operate from above. In such cases the patient is left in so much better condition in Operating through the abdomen that it must appeal to all of us.
