The Spleen and Some of its Diseases provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of the spleen. This book discusses the role that spleen plays in the etiology of diseases whose most obvious symptoms are evoked by associated or consecutive affections of other organs.
Organized into 14 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the anatomy of the spleen, which is entirely covered with peritoneum and is situated behind the fundus of the stomach. This text then describes the first recorded case of splenectomy. Other chapters consider the effect of splenectomy in man and animals upon the general health, upon the blood, and upon the various tissues. This book discusses as well the biochemical investigations upon the spleen and upon the metabolic activities of the body. The final chapter deals with the determination of the functional capacity of all the various organs.
This book is a valuable resource for surgeons and physicians.
