In the human being this condition is frequently encountered.Extirpation of one or more pulmonary lobes, other more conservative methods having failed, will perhaps become the operation of choice in cases of serious destruction of the lung tissue by chronic inflammatory processes, and, of course, in the presence of new growths.The success of the
