Inventum novum ex percussione thoracis humani et signo abstrusos interni pectoris morbos detegendi. Vienna 1761 "is one of the greatest of all medical classics and contains the results of Auenbrugger's experience with a new method of physical diagnosis thoracic percussion. In the book, Auenbrugger describes the technique of percussion and the sounds made in various diseased conditions of the chest. Although his discovery was extremely important, it attracted little attention from the medical community. Stoll, then director of the medical clinic at the Spanish Hospital, tried the new method and praised it in one of his books. After that, no more was heard of it until the late eighteenth century when Corvisart, while studying the works of Stoll, found a reference to Auenbrugger's discovery and began practicing percussion. Corvisart published a French translation of Inventum novum, the year before Auenbrugger died. Although modern methods of clinical diagnosis have to a great extent replaced manual percussion, Auenbrugger's discovery is one of the milestones in the history of medicine." (Heirs of Hippocrates).Malgré la traduction de Rozière de La Chassagne (1770), la découverte d'Auenbrugger passa inaperçue à son époque, puis tomba dans l'oubli. Elle "ne devait attirer l'attention que trente-huit ans plus tard, lorsque Corvisart de nouveau l'eut traduit et y eut ajouté ses commentaires." (Hahn, Hist. de la médecine et du livre médical, p. 264).
