Description

Excerpt from The Universal Medical Journal (Formerly the Satellite), 1895, Vol. 3: A Monthly Magazine of the Progress of Every Branch of Medicine in All Parts of the World Treatment of Appendicitis. - The meeting was almost exclusively de voted to the discussion of the treatment of appendicitis and perityphlitis, a discussion which arose after the reading of a paper on the subject at the last meeting by M. Millard, in which medical treatment was advocated to the almost entire exclusion of surgical measures. There was a consensus of opinion that surgeons generally for the past several years have shown a too marked tendency to operate in such cases. Clinical observation proved, in their minds, that the disease can be cured in the majority of cases without operation. M. DU cazal, who sees five or six cases a year in young soldiers at the val-de-grfice hospital, agreed completely with M. Millard, that the disease was one for medical treatment mainly. The other speakers differed from this more or less, and believed that while operation should not be undertaken in all cases, while intervention should be rarer than non intervention, it was absolutely necessary in a certain number of instances. Surgical treatment was indicated (1) in cases of generalized peritonitis from perforation; (2) in perforating appendicitis having an acute course; (3) in cases in which the purulent collection had reached a certain volume; (4) in recurrent cases of appendicitis. These indications, it may be re marked, are almost exactly the same as those given by M. Talamon in his work upon the subject.
