Wirsüng´s duct and the assassination of its discoverer
Surgery and its history are stunning whereas the flowering of surgery has proved as the dominant quantum of intellectual niveau of man, stemming from his thinking and empiricism. Pancreas was surgeons‘ terrā incōgnitauntil recently, and the vast majority of surgeries were highly regarded as hīc sunt leōnēs. And, therefore, I‘m taking the honor to inform in more detail about the anatomist and his pioneering autopsy, who is once and forever identified with the surgical anatomy of the pancreas, and also about the tragic and brutal end of his life.
