Caption

Battlefield surgery in 1540, historical artwork. Wounded soldier having an arrowhead extracted from his chest as the battle continues. Surgery in the 16th century was painful and risky, as anaesthetic & antiseptic drugs were not invented until the 19th century and post-operative infection often killed patients. Image taken from Feldtbuch des Wundartzney (Fieldbook of Surgery) by H. von Gersdorff, Strasbourg, 1540.
