Foreign bodies,  ���������jsuch as forceps, sponges, towels and  [gauze pads, are more frequently left in  , the human body after operations than  ,iho public Is aware ot.  To be sure, the  .^number of, operations in  which this  happens Is small.    It occurs perhaps  Vpnce.or, twice lu the course of 2,000  operations.   Like an eruption of Vesuvius, however, It Is likely at any time  'and has marked the operations of aome  ;of the best known surgeons of this  .'city.  They say it may occur again notwithstanding the number of schemes  which have been devised, to prevent It,  ���������r  No oue knows the number of the_e  mishaps, as only'ln relatively few cases  is death followed by an autopsy.   The  announcement that "the operation-was  a success, but tho. patient died," may  cover n multitude of Bins of omission  aud commission ko far. as any one can  tell.   One may find In the flies !of the  ."Annals of Surgery" the reports' of 6e-  tween ISO aud '200 cases.In which 6b-  jectB used lu operations have, been left  in tbe body.    These objects Include  tubes, clamps, sponges,, towels,, forceps,  tkclssors and finger rings.    Usually fit  Is a piece of gauzo or a sponge that Is  left in the wound.   In 109 cases reported from Europe thirty-one sponges  and'thirty-three pieces of gyuze were  left ln wounds.   In forty-three eases  death resulted.   In the other Blxty-slx  cases the articles worked their way out  after remaining in the body for months  and sometimes years or were discovered nnd n, moved by operations performed to relievo the pain caused by the  movemeuts_of_theso objects.  l,-i"*M"."-j*'I,,I"I,*I*"I**I*  Prices   and  Quality  guaranteed  **!**i**!*\I,*."I,*I*"."I*'I*"I''  \  Walworth-Rolston Co.Ltd*  H.

After the death of the  patient and on making an autopsy, yoa  can imagine my sorrow and chagrin in  finding-a small sponge ln tbe abdom-  iual cavity."  Even when the count does, not jtally  and it is evident tbat something la  missing, tbe accident whleh may coat  a life happens.  "It was a sponge about tbe aixe of a  email hen's egg, lost ln the abdominal  cavity, thanks tQ the assistance of. a  visiting Burgeon," aald one surgeon iu  reporting his experience. "A promine.it  operator from oue -of- the large eastern cities being present, I asked hlm  to assist me, as was then bo frequently  the custom. I did not feel at liberty to  speak to him quite aa I should have  dono to my usual^ilasrstaot.. Before  dosing * the iwotrad tbe^cl^omary  sponge count was called for and showed one misslngr. A. thorough search of  the room faijod to reveal it. I then  searched the cavity, as I thought, most  carefully. In the meantime every assistant���������and there were many, as was  then the custom���������expressed bla ��������� views,  and lt wus decided that tho missing  sponge was one which bad been dropped during the process of cleaning.  The incident wns recalled and seemed  confirmed by my vnln search of the  cavity. Peritonitis promptly followed,  not altogether unusual at that time,  and the postmortem four days later  revealed the sponge thoroughly concealed In the upper part of the cavity."  Not often, to be sure, but occasionally, the mistake is made of operating on  the wrong menilier. A ense is.reported  from'Canada which Illustrates this. It  was that of a diseased optic nerve. It  was feared that the dlscuso would be  communicated to tbo healthy nerve of  the other eye, and it was decided that  to obvlato this the diseased, nerve and  eye should be removed. The nature of  the malady was such that oue could  uot tell by .appearance-the diseased  from tho healthy eye. The patient, being under the influence of tbo anaesthetic, could not give any Information  on that point The healthy eyo was  taken out.  "Of course you would feel like shooting tbe surgeon," said tho. phy&ician  who told the Incident to a representative of the Tribune, "but there waa  jfniQunTrw ka$sau-et|  In oue case a surgeon lost hia seal  ring. It finally pushed Its wny to the  ,'eurface of tho body of" ia person" on  whom he had operated and was returned to its owner. Iu another a pair  of forceps circulated about the abdominal cavity of a "caBe" for four years  before being recovered. Pieces ot  gauze flvo feet long and a yard wide  havo been removed from persons on  Whom oi>eratlons had been performed.  It seems strange to the lajroau that  anything should be able to escape tbo  surgeon In such a small cavity as Is  liki-ly to be created in tbo body in the  course of au operation. Especially docs  It seem Impossible that any thins should  be lost lu view of the extreme care  taken to prevent it Mnuy surgeons  have worked out methods of procedure for operations with the Intention  of -'eliminating the possibility of tbo loss  of anything used. Uufortuuatoly even  these have novor proved Infallible.  The mowt usual mothod la to have ev-  eryllilnjt' counted by a nurse before  the opera tion begins. Before the wound  I* cloned each article is accounted for  by a recount Some surgeons havo bad  experiences which led thoni to triple  the number of porsons responsible for  the appliances, ench to cheek tbe counts  of nil tho othors. Other surgeous buvo  ths gauxo puds In packuges of half a  dozon or a dozen. Only one packago  Is opened at a time, and Its contents  must he nccounteil for bofore tho noxt  Is'opened, Tying tnpos to i>acb gnuzo,  pad or tnstriimont Inserted In a wound  Is another precaution, A prouiluout  Ilrooklyu aurgoon ilovised a chock system similar to thnt used by baggage-  lucu. A quantity of glass checks went  nu in bored, there Iwlug two of each  number, nnd to each sot of duplicates  wns attached a Utpa To ovory article  tired In tho operation one uf tbone  tupes with the cheek attnehod was f������s-  toui-d. Whenever, for Instimce. a |>loco  of gauso wiih taken from a basin tor  mho one of the checks was removed  ond. placed In tbo boalo, Before the  wound was stllchetl ������teh article rep*  rokfutedby liiotio detached checks bad  to be urt-oiintwl for.
