dc.description.abstractFrom a study of the pathology of accidental haemorrhage several very definite features are noted in the uterus in all well marked cases. These are: -en
dc.description.abstract(1) The presence of numerous haemorrhages in the myometrium. These exist chiefly in the outer half but are constantly present to some extent in the inner half and in the decidua. (2) That associated with this there is necrosis of muscle cells and that some observers have noted these in areas widely separated from any haemorrhage. (3) That there is evidence of vascular damage. In many cases there is very extensive thrombosis of the veins of the uterus and broad ligament. (4) Placental infarctions are frequently presenten
dc.description.abstractThese would all seem to indicate that some toxic poison or process is operating and that this poison would seem to have some specific effect on the blood vessels. It is also evident that in any given case there may b4 observed as part of the same process, placental infarction, retroplacental haemorrhage - revealed or concealed, thrombosis of the uterine and other pelvic veins, and also intra- uterine haemorrhages.en
