About this Item

Modern Surgery of the Locomotor System Stromeyer, Georg F. L. (1804-76). Beitrage zur operativen Orthopadik. . . . vi, 154pp. 8 lithographed plates; plate II in facsimile. Hannover: Helwing, 1838. 222 x 144 mm. Modern half vellum. Browned throughout as usual, some foxing, but very good apart from the plate in facsimile. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 4321. Stromeyer popularized the operation of subcutaneous tenotomy, first performed by Delpech in 1816. "He practically created the modern surgery of the locomotor system by applying subcutaneous tenotomy to all deformities of the body depending on defects. He is thus one of the founders of orthopedics in recent times" (Garrison, Hist. Med., pp. 495-96). In the present work, Stromeyer advocated subcutaneous tenotomy for all deformities caused by muscular contracture. Peltier, Orthopedics, pp. 32-33. Bookseller Inventory # 33686
