ABSTRACT

PERINEAL PROSTATECTOMY IN THREE DIMENSIONS and color was prepared with the purpose of demonstrating the possibility of complete hemostasis and clear visibility throughout the entire procedure, which we believe to be contrary to popular conception. The 20 representative views here presented were selected from a total of 36. The accompanying statistical charts are based upon a study of mortality, convalescence, complications, and late functional results.

For a detailed consideration of the factors which have gradually eliminated or minimized the recognized hazards and complications and which have transformed perineal prostatectomy into an innocuous procedure of precision, the reader is referred to "Progress in Perineal Prostatectomy: Report of 2050 Consecutive Cases," by Davis and Lee, in the January, 1955, issue of the Journal of Urology.

Note.  —It is suggested that the small photographs are better viewed through a reading glass.
