This is a concise and comprehensive review of the problem of peripheral arterial embolism. The study is based on collected clinical and morbid anatomical material observed by the author at three general hospitals in London.
A brief and satisfactory historical note prefaces the clinical material presented. There is an invaluable section devoted to anatomical variations in arterial collaterals. Fifty-seven adult cadavers injected with Hauch's fluid were used for this phase of the study. Diagnosis and postmortem arteriograms are clear and liberally presented.
The incidence of limb embolism in mitral stenosis is analyzed as well as the aspects of general etiology.
