Cast of the Cranium of Robert Burns

Description

In 1834 the body of Scotland’s national bard, Robert Burns, was exhumed from his grave in Dumfries. The exhumation was supervised by local surgeon Archibald Blacklock, who had an interest in phrenology. A plaster cast was taken of the skull, and Blacklock noted that “nothing could exceed the high state of preservation in which we found the bones of the cranium, or offer a fairer opportunity of supplying what has so long been desiderated by Phrenologists - a correct model of our immortal Poet’s head”. George Combe, a leading phrenologist, examined the cast and published his analysis in Edinburgh in 1834.

Three casts were made during the 1834 exhumation. This cast is believed to be a copy produced later in the 19th century. It was in the possession of Murdoch Cameron, Professor of Midwifery at the University of Glasgow. Cameron then gave the cast to John Cleland, Professor of Anatomy, whose collection is housed in the University’s Museum of Anatomy.

This item is on loan from The Hunterian, University of Glasgow.

Description

This 3D model is an interactive version of a woodcut illustration from Andreas Vesalius' publication, "De Humani Corporis Fabrica".

Published in 1543, this set of anatomical books was the first in history to be based on human dissection and observation. While studying in Padua, Vesalius began to notice the errors in anatomical teaching, which were based on the writings of Galen, a Greek physician and surgeon. Galen's works and teachings were based on animal dissections as human dissections were banned in Ancient Rome. Hence, Vesalius took it upon himself to publish a series of anatomical textbooks based on accurate human dissection.

Vesalius Muscle Man

Description

When Andreas Vesalius studied medicine in the 1530s, knowledge of human anatomy was based on the ancient teachings of Galen, who had only dissected animals. Vesalius taught himself human cadaveric dissection, and began to doubt Galen’s authority. When Professor of Anatomy at Padua, he prepared his famous work De Humani Corporis Fabrica. This work revolutionised medical science by challenging long-held tradition, and by its use of amazing woodcut illustrations. From now on students of medicine and surgery could study more accurate visualisations of the human body, drawn from observation and scientific investigation.

The iconic series of fourteen ‘muscle men’ in the ‘Fabrica’ shows the human body in various states of dissection. The figures are depicted in the Euganean Hills near Padua, where Vesalius was Professor of Anatomy.

Animation on Lister's Carbolic Spray

Description

In 1897, Joseph Lister published his ground-breaking article “Antiseptic Principle of the Practice of Surgery” in the medical journal, The Lancet. This article presented Lister's initial cases where he used what would become his principle of antisepsis. It was in the Glasgow Royal Infirmary that Lister first started using carbolic as an antiseptic, heralding the beginnings of a surgical revolution.

The carbolic spray, however, was mainly employed during Lister's time as a surgeon in Edinburgh. As well as sterilising wounds, Lister aimed to sterilise the surgical environment. Hence, an operator would pump carbolic spray around the operating theatre to eradicate any germs. Unfortunately, this had detrimental effects on practitioners since they were inhaling highly concentrated carbolic acid.

Tooth Extraction with Dental Key

Description

Before the invention of the dental forceps in the 19th century, teeth were extracted using a variety of dental instruments. One such instrument was the "dental key", named as such due to its mechanism of use.

If a tooth was to be extracted, the dentist, (or barber surgeon), would take the tooth key and place the claw around the affected tooth. They would then turn the key as if trying to open a lock and extract the tooth. This technique was not particularly successful and would often lead to the crown of the tooth being cracked off, leaving the root still embedded in the jaw.

Thankfully, the regular use of the tooth key was phased out in the 19th century due to the introduction of the dental forceps.

During his time as a police surgeon in Glasgow, William Macewen attended to several cases in the city centre. He collected any mentions of the cases from newspapers and put them together in a clippings book, which is held within the College's archive collection.

On 11th October, 1873, a young man had been stabbed in the back during an altercation. He had complaints of feeling breathless, as if something was tugging on his throat. When Macewen examined the wound, he found that the probe extended all the way into the pleural lining of the lungs.

At this point he came into contact with a shard of the knife that had been used to stab the young man. He successfully removed the knife segment and the patient survived.

Animation on First Brain Tumour Removal

Description

In 1879, Barbara Watson came under the care of William Macewen, presenting with a large tumour over the left eye. Macewen tended to Miss Watson with his well-known skill and compassion, but little did he know that this case would become a world first in neurosurgery.

At this time, there were no methods of imaging the body non-invasively- Rontgen did not discover X-rays until 1895. Therefore, determining the dimensions of brain lesions relied on the practitioner's observations of the patient's symptoms alone. This would have required an in-depth knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the brain. Thankfully, Macewen was well-read on the current theories on the brain at that time. Miss Watson truly could not have asked for a better surgeon to help her.

Due to Miss Watson's frequent convulsions, Macewen suspected that the tumour above the left eye was in fact passing through the skull into the brain. Hence, he decided to cut into the mass and follow its trajectory. Upon investigation, it was discovered that the tumour did indeed pass through the skull and was putting pressure on the dura mater. Macewen successfully removed the tumour, under antiseptic conditions, and closed the wound. Miss Watson survived the operation and died some years later from kidney problems completely unrelated to this case.

This case became the first successful removal of a brain tumour in the world.

Description

In 1879, Barbara Watson came under the care of William Macewen, presenting with a large tumour over the left eye. Macewen tended to Miss Watson with his well-known skill and compassion, but little did he know that this case would become a world first in neurosurgery.

At this time, there were no methods of imaging the body non-invasively- Rontgen did not discover X-rays until 1895. Therefore, determining the dimensions of brain lesions relied on the practitioner's observations of the patient's symptoms alone. This would have required an in-depth knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the brain. Thankfully, Macewen was well-read on the current theories on the brain at that time. Miss Watson truly could not have asked for a better surgeon to help her.

3D Model of Osteotome

Description

Displayed here is a 3D animated model showing the mechanism of an osteotome, a medical instrument designed by Sir William Macewen.

William Macewen was a surgeon in Glasgow during the late 19th century and early 20th century. He pioneered many clinical specialities, including orthopaedics. He designed his version of the osteotome in the 1870s, and wrote an in depth account of its design in his publication, "Osteotomy with an inquiry into the aetiology and pathology of knock-knee, bow-leg, and other osseous deformities of the lower limbs."

He explains:

"The osteotome is an instrument of the chisel order, bevelled on both sides, so as to resemble a very slender wedge...The osteotome is used only for making simple incisions, or wedge-shaped openings without removal of bone."

This unexploded cannon shell was extracted from the face of a patient by Professor Tom Gibson, a former president of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. The shell struck the soldier in the face, but caused little clinical disturbance.

Tom Gibson was born in Kilbarchan, Renfrewshire, on 24 November 1915. He was educated at Paisley Grammar School and Glasgow University where he graduated MB, ChB in 1938. He worked in the Medical Research Council Burns Unit, Glasgow Royal Infirmary, 1942-4. While at the Burns Unit he made an outstanding contribution to the understanding of the mechanism of homograft rejection. He was joined in Glasgow by Peter Medawar who had been working in Oxford on the same problem and their joint work “The fate of skin homografts in man”, was published in the Journal of Anatomy in 1943. The article is quoted in Morton’s Medical Bibliography as the work which placed the laws of transplantation on a firm scientific basis.

3D Scan of Biphasic Stimulator

Description

c. 1960s

This bi-phasic stimulator was owned (and probably built) by the neurologist James Sloan Robertson. Although the exact purpose of the machine is unclear, it was most likely used during surgical treatment of patients suffering from epilepsy. An electrode would be attached to the machine, which would help the surgeon to locate a lesion for removal, and also ensure that an undamaged part of the brain was not about to be removed. The device is clearly handmade, and is most likely an early prototype or precursor to machines used in later deep brain recording techniques.

James Sloan Robertson was one of the first modern neurosurgeons in the UK. After graduating in medicine from the University of Glasgow in 1920, he worked as a surgeon at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. He then trained in Canada for a year under renowned neurosurgeon, Wilder Penfield, at the Neurological Institute, Montreal.
During the Second World War, Robertson worked as a specialist in neurosurgery at the EMS Hospital in Killearn. He was one of the men behind the creation of the Institute of Neurological Sciences at Glasgow.

3D Scan of Examination Chair

Description

c. 1890

This chair for clinical examination and operative procedures was made by Mayer and Meltzer sometime in the 1890s. It was commissioned by Adam Brown Kelly (1866-1941), laryngologist at the Victoria Infirmary, Glasgow and was constructed to a design of the leading London laryngologist, Sir Morell Mackenzie. The high back with its adjustable head rest is at right angles to the seat, forcing the occupant to maintain a very upright posture.

There is only one armrest, on the left, and the seat’s central portion can rotate. All these features facilitate certain otolaryngological procedures. All examination was done using reflected light, the examiner looking down the centre of the beam created by a circular concave mirror via a central hole in the mirror. A lamp was placed slightly behind and to the left of the chair back, with the surgeon, seated, facing the patient.

The chair was later used by Adam Brown Kelly’s son, Derek, (d.2002) who was also an E.N.T. surgeon at the Victoria Infirmary.

"...I saw the lion just in the act of springing upon me...he caught my shoulder as he sprang, and we both came to the ground below together. Growling horribly close to my ear, he shook me as a terrier dog does a rat...Besides crunching the bone into splinters, he left eleven teeth wounds on the upper part of my arm."

Biographical Text

Thomas Wharton Jones was born in St. Andrews and educated first at a school in Stirling, then at the Parish School of Dalmeny, and then at Musselburgh Grammar School. In 1822 he entered the literary classes at the University of Edinburgh and, a couple of years later, commenced the study of medicine. In 1827, at the age of eighteen, he was acting as demonstrator of anatomy under Robert Knox at the extra-mural school of anatomy. His fellow demonstrators were William Fergusson and Alexander Miller. However, the popular clamour over the Burke and Hare murders brought the extra-mural school of anatomy to an untimely end. As the school had been supplied with bodies for dissection by Burke and Hare, Knox and his demonstrators were driven out of Edinburgh. Wharton Jones went to Glasgow and through the influence of William Mackenzie determined to practice ophthalmic medicine and surgery. He was also a pupil of Professor Rainy and John Burns, under whom he studied embryology, and it was during this time that he made the first of a long series of discoveries destined to make his name famous. The discovery of the germinal vesicle in the mammalian ovum was published as a paper in 1835, and was followed in 1837 by a paper on the origin of the chorion, which attracted the attention and approval of the celebrated anatominst, Purkinje. For a short time, Wharton Jones engaged in private practice in Cork, then visited the principal continental universities. From 1838 he settled in London where he held first the post of Lecturer in Physiology at Charing Cross Hospital, then that of Fullerian Professor of Physiology at the Royal Institution. Subsequently, he was Professor of Ophthalmic Medicine and Surgery at University College, and Ophthalmic Surgeon to University College Hospital, a position that he held for thirty years. Upon his retiral from University College, he was granted the title of Emeritus Professor at that College. In 1840 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, and in 1844 was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons. In 1881, Wharton Jones moved from London to the town of Ventnor on the Isle of Wight where he lived until his death in 1891. During his lifetime he wrote a number of papers, most of which were published in the Philosophical Transactions, and relate chiefly to the capillary circulation in health and in inflammation. His essay, "The state of the blood and blood vessels in inflammation", which called attention to the degeneration that occurs in nerve fibres distally after their severance from the nerve centres, was published in the Guy's Hospital Reports for October 1850, and was awared the Astley Cooper prize of £300.

Biographical Text

William Mackenzie was born in Queen Street, Glasgow, on 29 April 1791, the son of James Mackenzie, a muslin manufacturer. He was educated at Glasgow Grammar School and Glasgow University where he initially studied divinity with the intention of becoming a minister of the Church of Scotland. In 1810 he turned to medicine and in 1813 acted as a resident clerk to Dr Richard Miller. He obtained the Licence of the Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow in 1815 and spent nearly the whole of the next three years on the Continent, attending the clinics of Dupuytren and Alibert in Paris and Beer in Vienna. He came to London in 1818, attended lectures of Dr John Abernethy (1764-1831) at St Bartholomew's Hospital and attempted to set up in general practice. He became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons on 1 May 1818. In June 1819, Mackenzie tried to establish an Eye Infirmary in Southwark but the plan fell through and he returned to Glasgow two months later. He became a Fellow of the Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, began general practice and started lecturing on anatomy, surgery, materia medica and medical jurisprudence in Anderson's College.

In 1824, in conjunction with Dr G C Montieth, he founded the Glasgow Eye Infirmary. In 1828 he was appointed Waltonian Lecturer at the University of Glasgow "On the Structure, Function and Diseases of the Eye." In the same year, the first edition of the Glasgow Medical Journal appeared with Mackenzie as editor. Mackenzie published his Practical Treatise on the Diseases of the Eye in 1830 and it became a standard textbook on the subject until the invention of the ophthalmoscope in 1851 caused a radical change in the diagnosis and treatment of intra-ocular disease. The Physiology of Vision, published in 1841, was not to prove such a success and was considered by George Rainy in Mackenzie's obituary to be "far in advance of the age in which it was written". He was appointed Surgeon-Oculist in Scotland to Queen Victoria in 1838. He died at Glasgow on 30 July 1868.

Part of the collection was exhibited at the Glasgow City Museum and Art Gallery in 1959 as part of the celebrations of the 500th Anniversary of the Faculty. Some of the archives within the collection were listed in 1979 in RCPSG 1. They have now been brought together as well as other items of the collection which went astray and were subsequently purchased by the College.

After a period as consultant to the Western Regional Hospital Board, Dr White was appointed Professor of Orthodontics at the University of Glasgow in 1963. He maintained strong links with the affairs of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. He initiated, along with Professor J Aitchison, the development of a postgraduate qualification in Orthodontics, the first such qualification in the UK. As the dental representative on the College council, Professor White played an important role in promoting the development of the Fellowship in Dental Surgery which was established in 1967. He was convenor of the Dental Council 1972 – 1974. Professor White died in 1980. In his will be bequeathed the residue of his estate to the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow “for the furtherance of postgraduate dental education and research”. The income from this bequest has subsequently been used to support projects in the field of postgraduate dental education and research.

Biographical Text

James Sloan Mutrie Robertson graduated M.B., Ch.B. (Honours) from the University of Glasgow in 1928. He took the FRCS England in 1932, and the FRCS Glasgow in 1962. He was appointed gate surgeon to Glasgow Royal Infirmary but decided to pursue neurosurgery, training as a fellow of the Neurological Institute, Montreal. On returning to Glasgow Royal Infirmary he was appointed as neurosurgeon. After the Second World War, he was retained as a specialist in neurosurgery, and appointed to a new EMS hospital at Killearn where he pioneered and developed neurosurgery as an outstanding service to the west of Scotland. Robertson and Eric Paterson, with the support of Sir Charles Illingworth, formed the Glasgow and West of Scotland Neurosurgical Unit. Robertson also created the Institute of Neurological Sciences at Glasgow, which was based on the Neurological Institute at Montreal but modified in accord with his own experience at Killearn.
