Reviews of : Under the Knife by Arnold van de Laar PDF Book
Inside this Book – Jan de Doot lost all confidence in Tulp’s profession and literally took the matter into his own hands. He had suffered from the bladder stone for many years and had twice looked death in the face as a surgeon tried and failed to remove it. This operation is known as a lithotomy, literally ‘stone-cutting’. In those days, the mortality rate of a lithotomy – that is, the odds that you would die from it – were 40 per cent. One of the most important attributes of a successful stone-cutter’s practice was a good horse, so that he could get as far away as possible before the victim’s family could call him to account. The profession of stone-cutter was therefore – like that of tooth-puller and cataract-pricker – by nature a travelling occupation. The advantage of this nomadic existence was that there were always poor wretches in the next village who were suffering so much from their ailments that they were willing to take the risk – and pay for it, too.
Inside this book –Under the Knife PDF Book by Arnold van de Laar – IT IS EARLY Friday afternoon at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas. A forty- five-year-old man is brought into the emergency room with a gaping bullet wound to the head. Blood and brain tissue are dripping from the hole. Other patients are quickly diverted away from the department. A large number of people, all of them agitated, come in with the victim. Journalists mill around outside. The man’s wife walks alongside the stretcher, her face spattered with his blood. The victim is wheeled into the trauma room and the doors close behind him. He is alone with a doctor and a nurse, while his wife waits outside in the corridor.
