A, Gastroscopic view of a gastrojejunostomy opening drawn patulous by
the tube mouth. (Gastrojejunostomy done by Dr. George L. Hays.) B,
Carcinoma of the lesser curvature. (Patient afterward surgically
explored and diagnosis verified by Dr. John J. Buchanan.) C, Healed
perforated ulcer. (Patient referred by Dr. John W. Boyce.)

Drawn from a case of postdiphtheric subglottic stenosis cured by the
author's method of direct galvanocauterization of the hypertrophies.
A, Immediately after removal of the intubation tube; hypertrophies
like turbinals are seen projecting into the subglottic lumen. B, Five
minutes later; the masses have now closed the lumen almost completely.
The patient became so cyanotic that a bronchoscope was at once
introduced to prevent asphyxia. C, The left mass has been cauterized
by a vertical application of the incandescent knife. D, Completely and
permanently cured after repeated cauterizations. Direct view;
recumbent patient.
