Abstract

Lorenz (Laurence) Heister (1683-1758) was born in Frankfurt, studied in Giessen and Leiden, spent some time as a field surgeon in the Dutch army, and at the age of 27 became Professor of Anatomy and Surgery at the University of Altdorf, Germany. First published in German in 1718, his book was considered a standard reference work as late as 1838. Here the patient is having a dislocated shoulder re-located with opposing traction on the arm and chest wall. In the central image, he is secured in a frame to prevent the dislocation from recurring.
