Beitrage Zur Altertumskunde #270: Visceral and Soft Tissue Surgery in the Hippocratic Corpusby Mathias Witt
Synopses & Reviews
Contrary to a widely held belief, Hippocratic surgery did not just cover orthopaedics, it also included therapy for serious injuries to soft tissue. This was generally forgotten, since Hippocrates central text on the matter was lost in the Early Middle Ages. The work presented here attempts to reconstruct the lost text from quotes and references in ancient authors, and so provides an insight into a forgotten chapter of the earliest medical literature in the West.
