(1) Babington was responsible for the introduction of laryngoscopy. He demonstrated a crude "glottiscope" to the Hunterian Society on March 18, 1829, but his effort attracted little attention. No. 3327.
(2) Aoritc insufficiency is usually associated with the name of Corrigan, but Hodgkin's account antedates Corrigan by three years. 2746.
