The Obliquely Contracted Pelvis

Dr. Franz Carl Naegele

$89.95

This beautiful, genuine leather oversized volume was privately printed for Gryphon’s Members of the Classics of Obstetrics & Gynecology Library. In 1839, Naegele published a comprehensive study of the obliquely contracted pelvis, a condition that today bears his name. The work contained the first description of this deformity, the condition that showed little outward symptoms and thus could not be diagnosed in a living person. Along with 35 case reports presented in this text, first published in English in the centennial edition of 1939, Naegele offered for the first time aids to the diagnosis of this malady.

This beautiful, genuine leather oversized volume was privately printed for Gryphon’s Members of the Classics of Obstetrics & Gynecology Library. In 1839, Naegele published a comprehensive study of the obliquely contracted pelvis, a condition that today bears his name. The work contained the first description of this deformity, the condition that showed little outward symptoms and thus could not be diagnosed in a living person. Along with 35 case reports presented in this text, first published in English in the centennial edition of 1939, Naegele offered for the first time aids to the diagnosis of this malady. This work not only was useful in itself, but also set the example for much research during the next hundred years, which culminated in the classification of pelvic variations and their effects on labor published by the American obstetricians Caldwell and Moloy in 1933.
