First Edition in book form. 42 pp; 14 figs. Original cloth. Near Fine. 'Bigelow first published the present work in the American Journal of the Medical Sciences [Garrison-Morton 4292]. It is here in book form for the first time under a changed title and with some expansion of the text' (Heirs of Hippocrates 1864). 'The credit for bringing lithotrity to the peak of its development belongs to Henry Bigelow. He took advantage of the researches of Otis on the calibre of the urethra to construct larger and stronger lithotrites and evacuating catheters of large calibre. He attempted to crush and remove the whole stone in every case and named this procedure 'litholapaxy', also known as 'Bigelow's operation'. Of prime importance to the success of his method was his evacuator. This employed a powerful rubber bulb, beneath which was a glass trap for stone fragments, and with his larger catheters, it proved a major advance on previous aspirators' (Murphy, History of Urology, pp. 177-78). 'Rank[s] among the most memorable contributions to American surgery' (Rutkow Gup55, Vol. II, p. 221). N° de ref. de la librería 17541
