First edition, a significant contribution to the art of abdominal palpitation and manipulation. "The practical importance of abdominal palpitation as an aid to obstetrical diagnosis was not generally recognized until 1878 when Pinard published his classic treatise on the subject. The importance of Pinardís work is shown by the fact that today no material advance over his methods has been made" (Thoms, Classic contributions to obstetrics and gynecology, p. 43).Pinard here details his technique "for evaluating the cephalopelvic relation, and devotes fifty pages of text and illustrations to methods of determining the intrauterine orientation of the fetus. Pinardís approach concentrated on suprapubic palpitation of the maternal abdomen, to reveal the degree of engagement of the presenting fetal part and the side of the cephalic prominence" (Speert, Obstetric and gynecologic milestones, pp. 248-249).Pinard (1844-1934), a French obstetrician who practiced in Paris, was an expert in prenatal care. He invented a special stethoscope for listening to fetal activity. He was also a founding member of the French Eugenics Society.Garrison & Morton, 6193. Bookseller Inventory #
