Abstract

Results in 115 cases of transorbital leucotomy of noninstitutional patients are reported. The author believes that this is an excellent technique for treatment of selected cases from private practice, as well as such institutional cases reported by others.Studies of the psychoneurotic group are of particular interest and indicate another method of management of a very common and difficult problem.Results in those patients operated for relief of intractable pain and suffering suggest that this procedure is effective and among the least drastic of surgical measures.Several patients who had secondary dependency on narcotics, barbiturates, and alcoholic beverages obtained relief from these dependencies along with relief from the underlying disorders and none showed any withdrawal symptoms.
