she said, and all balloons must be

Granted his second two-year Men-

the University Hospital, assisted by
Dr. Piero P. Foa, formerly of the
University of Milan, is carrying on
both clinical and experimental work
in hypertension (high blood pres-
The clinical work conducted by
Dr. Peet is a "thorough study of hy-
l pertension patients before operation
in hopes of finding some test which
will determine before the operation
what the probable result will be." As
yet the doctor has not been wholly
successful in finding the satisfactory
rnd completely accurate test. All
there is to work with at the present
time, he said, is the degree to which
the disease has advanced and the
per cent of favorable cases in a simi-
lar age group.
In the group aged 20 to 30 he can
estimate the probable improvement
after operation at 75 per cent; but in
all cases, that is, those from 20 to
50, only about 46 per cent of the
patients show improvement in blood

tor, is unsatisfactory and must e
improved. Those patients with bad
kidneys or bad heart, or who are over
50 are not operated on.
Some of the patients wno have
been operated upon and released
from the hospital are selected for
further observation.
Experimental research is 'carried
on by Dr. Foa with animals. In the
laboratory he produces hypertension
in the animals and then studies the
"factors producing this experimental
hypertension and possible means to
modify it."
Recently Dr. Peet addressed a meet-
ing at the conference of the Kansas
'City Southwest Clinical Society on
the "Treatment of Hypertension by
Splanchnicectoimy." The subject of
his talk is the present method for
treating high blood pressure and the
recommended operative procedure is
"supra-diaphragmatic bilateral ex-
cision ;, fhe greater, lesser, and least
splanchnib nerves and of the tenth,
eleventh, and twelfth thoracic sym-
