" , U'!!vt Advertisement.] No disease is more likely to stimolate man's ingenuity-than a painful hernia; and we might say that no disease has ever given rise to so many new inventions, many of which are, undoubtedly, adapted to individual cases and the inventor carries it to his death-bed, where it must sink into obscurity. Whether this species of human misery is more prevalent now, than in former times, is not for us to determine, buta certain it is that some considerable improvements have lately been introduced, and many well attested prbofs of their efficacy have been established: we have selected those which appear

to us best calculated to perform a cure, or to alleviate the sufferings of those who labour under that dreadful malady.

The Common Truss will effectually secure a hernia of long standing, when all other trusses have failed, but there are few patients who can endure a sufficient pressure with a common truss, to secure a bad hernia. ad.cub9999 OVE! 0 civil_7.J11

The advantage of Coles's Patent over the Common Truss, (see fig. 2) consists in the introduction of two spiral springs between the truss and the pad, which effects a yielding pressure, and admits of a self-adjusting movement. However desirable these improvements may be in ordinary cases, the Patenter has himself

an hernia, and fortable or secure, therefore, in all cases ineffectual, apply the Bandages, fig. 1 or 3,

the pads of 3 russia bent to fit the os pubis, and apply them close to the penis as possible the pads having, likewise, a spiral spring attached thereto which pads are brought to the opposite hip to the complaint, the girdle being screwed to the spiral spring at one end, passes through of tightness, 117 11:9 od 907 gennaise

The size round the body, and particulars of the case, only need be mentioned) as the thigh straps are generally half the length of the girdle.



Fig. 4 is a Spring Truss, which may be applied in recent cases: the pad has but one spiral spring which effects a yielding pressure and a rotatory motion, the extremne point of the pad, by means of the spiral spring, effects a resistance to the hernia, or, in other words, a disposition to keep in its place.

Fig. 5 is a Spring Truss proper for recent cases, the back cushion having two spiral springs, to which the springs of the truss are fas. tened by a screw, the pads scarcely appear to have any connexion with the truss, which is capable of being adjusted, enlarged, or diminished.

Fig. 6 is a Half Truss for umbilical hernia, the front pad of which may, in female cases, be screwed to the bust of the stays, the brass screw-head will receive the other part of the truss outside tbe stays. The Half Truss in all cases, with a cushion in the centre of the back, is preferable to an opposite-sided Truss, or a Hoop Truss going round the body, particularly the Umbilical Truss. Terms of the above Instruments will ensure confidence.

We look forward with confidence that at no very distant period we sball see one of the first Rupture Societies in the world establisbed upou the above principle,

INSTRUMENT For passing a Ligature round a deep-seated Artery,



[ocr errors]

It is well known to the Surgical profession that the most difficult part of an operation for Aneurism is the passing of the ligature round the Artery, if deep-seated, and the extrication of the thread from the eye of the Needle after it is passed round the Artery. The following Instrument, the principle of which was suggested to Mr. Weiss by Mr. Kirby, an eminent Surgeon in Dublin, will be found, it is hoped, to obviate the above-mentioned difficulties. It has already been used with success in Subclavian Aneurism by an eminent Hospital Surgeon of London, and is generally approved of by the Surgical profession.
