The object which one proposes. In surgery, a wound is said to heal by the first intention, when cicatrization occurs without suppuration; union by the second intention, being that which does not occur until the surfaces have suppurated. To obtain union by the first intention, the edges of a recent wound must be brought in apposition and kept together by means of adhesive plasters and a proper bandage. Delpech has substituted for those expressions, Reunion primitive, and Reunion secondaire.
