Description

Excerpt from Maryland Medical Journal, Vol. 14: A Weekly Journal of Medicine and Surgery; November, 1885-April, 1886 The adhesions were ligatured with fine cat-gut as fast as they were divided. In passing the ligatures a forceps, simi lar to the ordinary compression forceps, was used. This instrument had blades more than an inch long, of very small diameter, terminating in sharp points, so sharp that when the blades were closed they could be thrust through any soft tissue like a large needle. Grasping the ligature in the point of these blades, the tissue to be ligatured was transfixed. The ligature 'was then pulled through and the forceps withdrawn.
