put on the left carotid and subclavian arteries 
and the cut edges of the Pleural and cellular tissue 
of the posterior mediastinum should be gathered into 
bundles and enclosed by ligatures. Ligatures 
should be carefully applied to the four pulmonary 
veins externally to the pericardium and care must

any injection which might be forced through the 
mitral valve into the left auricle from finding 
its way into these veins nd thence into the lungs 
and causing the vessels belonging to the Pulmonary 
system to become injected - 
It is necessary that freshly precipitated chromate 
of Lead should be used for the purpose of injecting 
the Bronchial arteries, because the capillaries
