dc.description.abstractThe object of the following Thesis, is to consider the conditions that determine the development of the degenerative changes in the muscular,/systems of patients suffering from chronic diseases, and some contribution to our knowledge tbf the pathology under -lying such changes and the most suitable means for their prevention. In the numerous text books and monographs that have -been consulted, considerable space is devoted to the primafy patholog -cal changes that may be said to constitute the disease ìn'these patients; but scarcely any reference has been found to those secondary changes with *hi ch this Thesis is mainly concerned. In many of the conditions which will come under discussion, these secondary changes play a much greater part in the invalidity of the patient, than the primary disease, for it shall be found that patients who have recovered from their original disease are left permanently crippled, or even completely helpless, owing to the secondary changes that have developed at a distance from the original focus of disease.en
