CANNULATION OF THE THORACIC DUCT IN MAN

Author
  • AE Dumont

Abstract

"The contents of the thoracic duct in the human subject having never been obtained in sufficient quantity for the purposes of chemical analysis, I resolved to avail myself of an opportunity which lately presented itself in the execution of a criminal at the Old Bailey.

"I was enabled to commence operating upon the body one hour and a quarter after death and before it had become cold, although the thermometer stood considerably below 32° Fahr., and the body had been exposed on the scaffold during one hour."
