Excerpt from The Memphis Lancet, Vol. 3
The apparatus itself, in its present modification, devised by Freudenberg in Berlin, does not allow of any criticism, and in the hands of a competent surgeon renders the Operation absolutely harmless. I give the description in his own words: The modifications in point are relative to shape, handiness and electro-technical construction, affording at the same time the possibility of sterilization.
The modified instrument is provided with a stout, cylindrical, grooved handle, strong and steady in the hand, quite resembling the well-known handle of a lithotrite.
The cooling apparatus is inserted on this side of the handle, instead of at its further extremity, thereby obviating incalescence of the handle, and securing the rubber hose of the cooling appa ratus from being compressed by the ulnar aspect of the hand.
