JOHN EDMUND MACKENTY (1869-1931) Although celebrated as a New York surgeon he was a Canadian by birth, having graduated at McGill University, Montreal, in 1892. After a few years in Boston, with Dr. Cabot, and some post-graduate work in Europe, he settled in New York in 1899. There, for thirty years, he was identified with the large Manhattan Ear and Throat Hospital, where most of his well-known work on cancer of the larynx was carried out. His great experience in laryngectomy gave him an enviable reputation in this special procedure, which he shared with such European workers as Gluck, Soerensen and Tapia. At one time he reported 31 laryngectomies without a death later on, he put on record 102 laryngectomies with four deaths, all these being in diabetic subjects. His follow-up results were also remarkable. Between 1917 and 1922, 31 laryngectomies gave five recurrences; from 1922 to 1926,58 laryngectomies gave five recurrences. Both these records illustrate the well-established fact that, with experience, improvement increases both in the selection of cases and in operative skill.
