Էջ 209 - Dilatation of the veins follows at a long interval of time. The rate of circulation at the commencement is increased, but this soon changes to the very reverse, viz., abnormal slowness. The cause of the vascular dilatation is undetermined, but a very reasonable hypothesis attributes it to inhibitory nervous influence. Billroth thus states this view: "We actually know such phenomena from physiology; the obstruction of the heart's action by irritation of the vagus nerve, of the movements of the intestines...

Էջ 137 - Signs. — (Often obscure,) pain, loss of power, crepitus, irregularity in spine of scapula if fracture passes through that process. Treatment. — Bandage pad over scapula, elbows supported by a sling. Prognosis. — Deformity not unlikely. Fractures of Neck of Scapula. — Two kinds, viz., 1, of anatomical neck, ie, external to coracoid ; 2, of surgical neck, ie, internal to coracoid process. In fracture of the anatomical neck, the symptoms resemble those of dislocation of the head of the humerus...
