Exploratory Operation Establishes Diagnosis an "Exploratory Mrs. J.Y., Ind. techniques. sometimes the exact diagnosis of a condition inside the abdomen is difficult to establish. Even with radio-opaque dyes, conditions of the stomach, the gall bladder, the kidneys, the liver, the intestines and the pelvis sometimes elude the keenest observation. When this occurs, physicians and surgeons suggest an exploratory operation, or "laparo- tomy," to confirm a suspected diagnosis. SAFEST WAYS At first, it may seem that this is an extreme way to approach such a problem. With the safety of today's anesthesia, Â·apidity with which the abdomen can be opened, the ex- ploraory operation is often the to determine unexplained symptoms and to reveal hidden disease. In some inslances, the exploratory operation can be considered the most conservative approach, rather than an apparent radical one. By this method, problems that evade proper diagnosis can be identified so that complica- not ensue because of delayed treatment. Before an exploratory opera- performed, physicians and surgeons carefully evaluate of safety and the advantages against other, more involved approaches. I have a 15-month-old daugh er.

Further more, you have a notrump type of hand. i. Three spades. This hand also has a huge slam potential, but it is not a member of the notrump family because of the singleton c l u b . Suit slams generally don't require 3.1 points where there arc distributional values that compensate for a shortage of high-card points. The spades are mentioned, not in (he hope of finding North with four of them, which is unlikely, but to try to represent the 4-5-3-1 distribution for slam purposes. The intention is to bid four diamonds if partner's rebid is three notrump. North will thus learn of the club shortage and (his will make it much easier for him to choose the best contract. \. Three notrump. It is un- n e c e s s a r y to bid three diamonds, since by far tbe most promising path to game is notrump. Nine tricks in not r u m p are apt to be easier to negotiate than eleven tricks in diamonds. 5. Three notrump.
