Case of Arterio-Venous Aneurism of the Axillary Artery and Vein of Fourteen Years Duration. [Offprint].
by OSLER, Sir William (1849-1919).
Philadelphia:: Annals of Surgery, 1893., 1893. Offprint. 24 cm. 4 pp. Printed wrappers. Very good. "The condition of arteriovenous aneurism has interested Osler for a number of years, he having had under observation at intervals a man whose case he described in the Annals of Surgery, 1893. A the time the patient was 25 years old. When fifteen he had fallen and a lead pencil in his waistcoat pocket penetrated the axilla, causing an arteriovenous aneurism. He had remained very well, had been active and strong, had rowed in boat races. Osler heard of this patient not many months ago. He had served through the South African war, so that his general health must have remained good. The aneurism has persisted now for more than twenty-three years. Arteriovenous aneurism is so rare a lesion that even surgeons of large experience are often a little perplexed as to the best course to follow. Osler is very much impressed with this in the extraordinary differences of opinion given to the young man with the lesion high up in the axillary artery." – Practical Medicine Series of Year Books, Volume 1, October, 1902.
