isfactory and that the discussions which have arisen as to its scope, or, more truly, as to the processes that are rightly to be included under the term, are so bar- ren and profitless that we decide absolutely to expunge it from our vocabulary; or, on the other hand, we must determine to include in our viagra pastillas idea of inflamma- tion all processes having a like origin and tendency. There is no logical intermediate course unless it be to confine the term strictly to its primitive meaning and to determine that there can be inflammation only where there is " flaming," where there is redness and heat. No one is prepared nowadays to take this course, for this necessitates physiological active comprar viagra americano con- gestion of a superficial organ being considered as in- flammatory. Nor again are there many v ho, wedded to tradition and cardinally virtuous, with Celsus only see inflammation when rubor, calor, dolor, and tumor are present. For these cannot deny that identical processes may occur when one or two or more of these cardinal symptoms are wanting. Thus, nowadays, those who would define inflammation etymologically are non-existent, while the partisans of tradition are ' minished and brought low," forming a small and an impossible remnant. Hence, to return to my previous statement, there are but two logical courses open to us. Can we accept the first alternative and banish the idea of inflammation? I trow not the suggestion comprar viagra americano is too quixotic. It is not within comprar viagra americano the power comprar viagra americano of any workers in viagra pastillas any one branch of our science, even if that branch be pathology, to expunge at will a term of uni- versal employment, a term that has come down to us through the ages a term which, however loosely and variously employed, does viagra pastillas nevertheless for all cover a greater or less number of processes of common oc- currence. We cannot in a widespread science sud- denly create a " tabula rasa" and start anew. Just as were we to do away with the plutocracy and start equally endowed with worldly possessions, while in twenty years the old plutocratic families would per- chance be non-existent as such, yet the amassing of money and possessions in the hands of a few would inevitably be manifested, so were we to banish "in- flammation" from our vocabulary, in the same time or even less some other word would be surely in common employment to denote the same idea. It cannot be done, and as a consequence the adoption of the second alternative is our only practical course. We have, that is to say, so to employ the term comprar viagra americano that it will embrace all processes having a like origin and like import. Thus, then, starting from the generally accepted basis that the process is in its essence local and that the prime t all inflammations is in- jury to the tissues, if we are prepared to admit that one common or allied train comprar viagra americano of results follows upon all in- juries, we must as our provisional definition state that inflammation is the series of changes constituting the local reaction to injury. This is to all intents and purposes Burdon-Sander- son's definition and is that which for the last quarter of a century has been most generally accepted. For myself [ cordially accept it as a good working defini- tion; but at the same time I cannot but consider that the researches made since 1880 have materiallv added to our comprehension of the phenomena associated with comprar viagra americano the process and of their tendency, and permit us now to acknowledge the import as well as the origin of the viagra pastillas process. Those researches have shown us that a very definite meaning is to be attached to the main vital processes which follow injury to a part. They have proved that the accumulation of leucocytes in the injured area is purposeful; that, whether by intra- or extra-cellular action, these cells are capable, up to a certain extent, of counteracting the irritant and of re- moving dead and effete material; they have satisfac- torily proved that the inflammatory serum possesses both digestive and bactericidal powers greater than the serum of the circulating blood : they have demon- viagra pastillas strated that the migration of the leucocytes into the inflammatory area is not a passive process, but an ac- tive one directly dependent upon the extent of the stimulus exerted upon these cells by chemical altera- tions in their environment; they have demonstrated that the amount of fluid exuded into any one region of the comprar viagra americano body varies inter alia directly according to the intensity of the irritant the more intense the irritant the greater the extent to which it is diluted; while, further, the part played by the fixed cells in the im- mediate neighborhood is equally evident and equally purposeful, tending manifestly to result in the cutting off of the damaged area from the surrounding healthy tissue and again to replace the tissue that has under- gone destruction. Hence I am impelled to define in- flammation as the local attempt at repair of injury, or, more fully, inasmuch as there is a certain small class of cases in which all the symptoms of inflamma- tion are present as a consequence of nervous disturb- ance wholly unassociated with previous local injury, 1 as the series of changes which constitute viagra pastillas the local at- tempt at repair of actual or referred injury to a part. So that needless objections be not raised, let me em- phasize the fact that comprar viagra americano I do not regard inflammation as synonymous with repair. Attempt at repair and repair are two very different things, and no more to be con- comprar viagra americano founded than attempted suicide and suicide, or, not to approach too closely to a very delicate subject, than the Emperor William's recent telegram comprar viagra americano to the Boers and actual war between two considerable European nations. This, then, is the definition I am inclined to lay down. Save in the small matter of the wording, I do not claim any originality, for others in different lands have viagra pastillas given forth definitions embracing the same idea. Thus Neumann, in Germany, defines inflammation as " the series of local phenomena which are developed in consequence of primary lesions of the tissues and which tend to heal these lesions.''' " Bland Sutton, in England, is somewhat more restricted. " It is," says he, "the method by which an organism attempts to render inert noxious elements introduced from without or arising within it." 3 I doubt whether Sutton is right in speaking of it as a comprar viagra americano method and to me the larger view appeals, not simply of counteraction against the irritant but also of attempt to bring about a return of the region toward a functional condition but the definition contains the same recognition of the purposive nature of the process. And lastly, here at
