TitleLetter from H A Haxton, Manchester Royal Informary, to Henry Barcroft
Date15 November 1946
DescriptionWas glad to meet Barcroft in Edinburgh and see the plethysmographic work. Would be glad to have any reprints he can spare. In his investigation of limbs after sympathectomy, has found that 'the return of sympathetic activity is almost inevitable' - is making this the basis of his Hunterian lecture. Does not think that there has been any literature about postoperative tests since Simmons and Sheehan. Notes that in Manchester they use 'Telford operation' which leads to a less painful convalescence. Recommends that he get in touch with Professor Telford if he ever requires large numbers of cases for testing.
