Abstract

(1)THE contents of this book constituted a thesis for the M.D. degree submitted to the University of Edinburgh. The term ileoc cal valve is applied to the orifice between the small and large intestines and the anatomical structures immediately adjacent and intimately concerned with this orifice. The author shows that divergent views have been expressed regarding the form and structure of this valve, divergences due partly to the method of preparation of the specimens and partly to variations in the valve itself. From an examination of a living subject, and from a series of thirty-two specimens removed soon after death and suitably treated, the author believes that he is able to describe the normal appearance of the valve, the function of which is to regulate the flow of semi-fluid bowel contents through the orifice and to prevent regurgitation. The book is illustrated with coloured diagrams and a number of excellent halftone plates.
