An operation for abscess of the appendix vermiformis caeci.

Med. Rec. (N.Y.), 2, 25-27, 1867.

Parker was the first American to operate for appendicitis. In this paper he described a case from 1864, but mentioned a case he had operated on as early as 1843. He advocated the opening of the appendicular abscesses at an early stage; until his time such abscesses had been opened only when they pointed on the surface.
