Wireds Fotografie-Mag Raw File war in einem medizinischen Museum und hat sich alte Operationsinstrumente angesehen. Knochensägen und eiserne Lungen galore!
This surgical set (partial) belonged to a Dr. Leonardo (1796-1860), personal physician to Ferdinand II of Bourbon, King of the Two Sicilies. The tools included a trepanning instrument (the procedure was still used into the 19th century) and tools for amputating limbs, including a chill-inducing bone saw (top). The pliers were probably used to pull bullets from flesh.
