Subject : Bladder — Calculi; Suprapubic lithotomy.
A large dumbbell shaped calculus is depicted, 7 inches at its furthest circumference, reassembled with plaster patches after it had been broken-up and extracted from the subject's bladder. For this operation, Fenwick followed Rivington's procedure, using a chisel and mallet (supra cit). Fenwick won the Jacksonian prize in 1887 for his essay titled, Tumour of the bladder. He was an early adopter of cystoscopy and x-ray technologies in treating disorders of the bladder and it was through his efforts that urology was shaped into a specialty recognized by the Royal Society of Medicine.
