Description
Medizin - ChirurgieTolet, FrancoisTraité de la lithotomie ou de l'extraction de la pierre hors la vessie. Mit 19 Kupfertafeln u. 2 Textabb. Paris, chez l'auteur proche la Charité, 1684. 249 S., 7 S. Leder d. Zt. mit RSchild u. Stehkantenvergold. (Rücken mit kleinen Defekten).Zweite Ausgabe. - Krivatsy 11902 - Vgl. Waller I, 9629 (tls EA). - Ein Klassiker der Urologie. Die eindrucksvollen Kupfer zeigen recht anschaulich die Handgriffe, die zur Entfernung von Blasensteinen nach der Methode des Autors offenbar unvermeidlich waren. - Exemplar aus dem ehemaligen Besitz des Chirugen Lamberthe mit Stempel 1722 und von Alfred Jules Naigon (Mediziner aus Dijon).With 19 engraved plates and 2 text images. - A classic in urology. The impressive coppers vividly depict the hand movements that were apparently unavoidable for the removal of bladder stones according to the author's method. - Copy from the former possession of the surgeon Lamberthe with stamp 1722 and of Alfred Jules Naigon (physician from Dijon). - "In Tolet's day lithotomy was one of the major and most dangerous of operations. Explicit directions are given for the operation in children as well as adults of both sexes. Particularly stressed is the need for careful restraint of the patient during surgery using strong assistants, straps, scarves, or cloths. The lesser and greater lateral perineal operations in men and women are described and illustrated. Among the many causes of the stone, the author named unleavened bread, waterfowl, curds, pap, old cheese, hard eggs, unripe fruits, the feet or legs of beef or pork, salted or spiced meats, and medicines which dehydrate the body. The plates depicted instruments, positioning of the patient, the use of the curved metal catheter, the making of the incision, and use of extracting clamps." (Vgl. Waller 9629, 30).
