abstract

  • The classic bounding pulse of aortic regurgitation was described by several authors before Corrigan made his comprehensive study of the disorder in 1832. The case report of Thomas Cuming, published 10 years earlier, is worthy of review. This Dublin practitioner not only presented signs and symptoms of aortic regurgitation proved at autopsy, but also attempted with considerable success to relate the signs to circulatory dynamics.
