About this Item

5 works in 1 volume. 4°, disbound. Caption title. Slight soiling. Overall in good to very good condition. 8 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. The first four works describe six operations for aneurysms on elbows, thighs and knees, with details on the lifestyle of the patient, cause of the aneurysm, and symptoms before and after surgery. Garrison and Morton list only eight works on aneurysms dated earlier than this one: two from the seventeenth, three from the eighteenth and three from the early nineteenth century.These were among the first aneurysm operations performed in Portugal, and a note to the first work states that these details are being published to encourage more surgeons to practice repair of aneurysms, rather than resorting to amputation. Antonio José de Sousa and Francisco d'Assis e Sousa Vaz both taught at the Regia Escola de Cirurgia in Porto. The consulting physicians are listed on p. 2 of the first work, because another surgeon in Porto had tried to persuade the patient that the physicians at the Hospital da Misericordia were not competent to perform the operation.*** Not located in Lisbon, Faculdade de Medicina, Catálogo da colecção portuguesa, or Pires de Lima, Catálogo da Bibliotheca da Escola Medico-Cirurgica do Porto.
