Comments: Report on Freyer's paper on a new method of performing perimeal prostatectomy, read before the Medical Society of London. Freyer later published "A Clinical Lecture on Total Extirpation of the Prostate for Medical of Enlargement of the Organ" in the British Medical Journal. Freyer claimed priority over Fuller (GM 4263) in originating the recto-vesical method of prostatectomy. Although mistaken in this claim, Freyer certainly popularized the operation.
