T he neurosurgical management of wounds of the central and peripheral nervous system sustained in modern warfare has been considerably facilitated by the introduction of tantalum. Its physical properties and inertness when in contact with body tissues have allowed its application in numerous forms, viz. plate, foil, wire and ribbon. Utilizing these different preparations, it has been possible to successfully repair cranial defects, secure hemostasis, perform accurate nerve suture and prevent postoperative adhesions (subdurally to avoid meningocerebral

W ith the high incidence of injuries to the central and peripheral nervous system sustained in this war, a volume of neurosurgical material has become available for study. Late effects of spinal cord and peripheral nerve damage are still not thoroughly understood and it is obvious that treatment of patients with lesions of this type cannot be delayed until such additional knowledge is acquired. It therefore seems justifiable to record any observations made that may shed a certain amount of light on this only partially explored field. With this purpose in mind

T he anatomy of the peripheral nervous system in man has been engaging increasing attention owing to the development of neurosurgery during the last few decades. One of the reasons why I have taken up the question of the innervation of the shoulder joint for closer examination is the knowledge that a Swedish surgeon, Dr. H. Wahren, in the course of the last few years, has made operative cuts of nerve branches running to the joints, as a last resort in certain states of severe pain. That surgical operations on the nerves of the joints require a thorough

involvement, symptoms and signs usually make a late appearance. In order, the 7th, 9th, 10th, 5th, 3rd, 4th and 12th cranial nerves are commonly involved. 30 Arkin 1 reported involvement of the peripheral nervous system in 20 per cent, Boyd 4 in 33 per cent, Heathfield and Williams 13 in 40 per cent, and Lovshin and Kernohan 18 in 52 per cent of patients. Neuritis usually occurred within 4 months of the onset of the disease. Pain in the calves is usually the first sign of polyneuritis. The most suggestive feature of polyneuritis is its variable behavior. It may begin

membrane of the cell in the single optic-tract glioma that we studied. The winding of this membrane about an axonal-appearing structure, in a manner identical to that present in the production of the myelin lamellae by the Schwann cells in the peripheral nervous system and by the oligodendrocytes in the mammal, 2 is suggestive of at least an attempt at the production of myelin by these neoplastic cells. This spiraling of the membrane of the cell was not noted by Sarah Luse. 5 We are extremely critical of our observation of the delicate, crystalline-appearing bodies in
