This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1922 Excerpt: ...passed from this left ventricle, as previously seen, through the normal passages into the right ventricle. This plate, (Plate i), taken with the patient lying on his face and the tube directed downwards, shows again air in the left side and none in the right. Dr. Mixter: I put it into the right ventricle. Dr. Merrill: This was taken with his face uppermost, and the air is still seen on the left, and none on the right. This plate, taken in an attempt to visualize the base of the skull, with the patient's head hyperextended until the vertex is downward, the plate taken horizontally, shows the air ascending toward the base of the skull in what are normally the lower portions of the ventricle. It is seen in the anterior and posterior horns, and we have also a fairly good picture of the sella, showing that that is normal in appearance and outline. Of course in these plates taken directly through from one side to the other, either horizontally or perpendicularly, the air may be in either ventricle. To differentiate which ventricle it is in the other plates are taken, and to show whether it passes freely from one ventricle across to the other the plates are taken first lying on one side where the air would normally show in the upper ventricle, and then turning him over to see if it passes over to the one which is now above. The only abnormality we see is the fact that in none of the plates do we get any air into the right ventricle, which leads to the conclusion that the right ventricle is occluded by some pathological condition, probably a mass, causing obstruction of that ventricle. Differential Diagnosis Dr. Mixter: Taken in conjunction with the neurological examination, this examination of the ventricles would point quite strongly to a lesion of the right cere...
