Side 26 - In some few instances, it makes its appearance with little or no pain ; but in by much the majority of these cases, the patients feel great uneasiness through the whole foot and joint of the ankle, particularly in the night...
Side 376 - By repeated cuts in different directions, the opake lens and its capsule are divided in many pieces, and at the same time I take particular care to detach as much of the capsule as possible from its ciliary connexion. As soon as this is accomplished, I turn the instrument in the same direction as when it entered the eye, and, with its flat surface, bring forward into the anterior chamber as many of the fragments as I am able; by these means the upper part of the pupil is frequently left free from...
Side 268 - If there is any difference from its usual appearance, it is, that the ligament of the patella appears rather more relaxed than in the sound limb. The leg is readily bent or extended by the hands of the surgeon, and without pain to the patient: at most, the degree of uneasiness caused by this flexion and extension is trifling.
Side 39 - An impetuous flow of blood, a sudden and forcible retraction of the artery within its sheath, and a slight contraction of its extremity, are the immediate and almost simultaneous effects of its division. ,The natural impulse, however, with which the blood is driven on, in some measure counteracts the retraction, and resists the contraction of the artery. The blood is effused into the cellular substance between the artery and its sheath, and passing through that canal of the sheath which had been...
Side 268 - I have described may be brought on, I apprehend, by any such alteration in the state of the joint, as will prevent the condyles of the os femoris from moving truly in the hollow formed by the semilunar cartilages and articular depressions of the tibia.
Side 27 - I think also that I have much more often found it in the rich and voluptuous, than in the labouring poor; more often in great eaters, than free drinkers. It frequently happens to persons advanced in life, but is by no means peculiar to old age. It is not, in general, preceded or accompanied by apparent distemperature either of the part, or of the habit. I do not know any particular kind of constitution which is more liable to it than another; but, as far as my observation goes, I think that I have...
Side 214 - Great advantage is derived in the reduction of dislocations, from attending to the patient's mind; the muscles opposing the efforts of the surgeon, by acting in obedience to the will, may have that action suspended, by directing the mind to other muscles.
Side 70 - We now discover an evident alteration in the pulse ; it becomes full, strong, and greatly agitated. The whole body begins to swell ; the eyes become so entirely suffused that it is difficult to discover the smallest portion of the adnata (the general covering of the eyeball and eyelids) that is not painted with blood.
