Take at least two Röntgenographs, one in the ventral recum¬ bent position with the anode centered over the sacrococeygeal articulation; this should be a standard exposure for the blad¬ der, always preserving the same distance from anode to plate. Center as above and a Röntgenograph will result from which reliable comparison as to size, position and conformity can be made. The second exposure can be taken at any desired lateral or dorsal angle. The proper angle found, stereo-Röntgenographs would

The solution can be removed by irrigation after the exposures have been made, or allowed to pass off naturally. The danger oi bismuth poisoning from absorption is practically nil. URETEROTUBAL ANASTOMOSIS A PRELIMINARY REPORT AXEL WERELIUS, M.D. CHICAGO Owing to the rather discouraging results following partial excision of bladder for malignant disease, the complete removal of the organ is, as a rule, the only procedure that holds out any hope of lasting cure. The all-important problem in such radical work is, of course, to establish an outlet for the urinary secretion, and one that combines the greatest insurance against ascending infection with the least annoyance to the patient.
