Description

The cautery clamp was probably used during ovariotomy to control the bleeding from blood vessels. The clamp, coated with ivory, was to be used with a cautery. Isaac Baker-Brown (1812-73), who devised this type of clamp around 1865, wrote the first book dedicated entirely to gynaecology, 'On Surgical Diseases of Women', in 1854. maker: Collin Place made: Paris, Ville de Paris, Île-de-France, France
