johnnylim reblogged your photo: Various methods of extracting teeth, from Ioannis…

wtf? how the hell does number 5 work?

Sculteti didn’t always put procedures together that you’d think should be together.

I know that Fig V is using a water syringe for lavage of the ear canal…even after reading the captions for the procedures I’m not positive what connection he drew between cleaning the ear canal and pulling teeth. I mean, the ear was (and still is) fairly connected to tooth pain, and if you have an infection in a tooth root of a dead tooth, you’ll probably feel it in your ear before your gums/jaw. But what washing out the canal would do, I have no idea.

Re-setting bones and joints.
Fig I. Compound fracture of humerus
Fig II. Luxation [complete dislocation] of elbow 
Fig III. Luxation of humerus
Fig IV. "Restoration of femoris" - I haven’t the slightest what’s happening there. Restoring the femur or something femoral, presumably.
