The literature on gastro-enterology heretofore has lacked an adequate presentation of the subject of postoperative gastric disturbances. In this monograph the authors describe their investigation of these disturbances in about 400 patients whose stomachs had been subjected to various operative procedures. The methods employed were those of careful clinical study and detailed roentgenologic examinations, the technic now in vogue on the Continent being used. This phase of the work has been done exceedingly well, for the task of obtaining definite roentgenologic information in a case in which an operation has been performed on the stomach is admittedly difficult. The numerous illustrations are excellent.
The various procedures of gastric surgical intervention are described in turn, sufficient consideration being given to the technic, the disturbances that may result and their clinical manifestations and the changes in the form of the stomach, in its secretion and in its motor function.
