Both theoretical and practical medical knowledgewas monumental within thenineteenth century, witha series of events that marked the development of Traumatology and Orthopaedics. Firstly therewas the fusion of medicine and surgery, passing it to be considered as a science, with all its implications. Secondly, the onset and development of anaesthesia, whichallowed focused surgery results, rather than speed. Thirdly, the development of antiseptics, whichenabled safer surgery. Finally, the discovery of X-rays at the end of the century, allowing a direct approach to the marrow pathology. Anaesthesia and antiseptics allowed the development of more sophisticated surgical techniques and amputations,with the dramatic increase in survival rates of patients. Bound by E. C.
