Anesthesiologic retrospective view of the surgeon Hans Kehr

Anesthesiologic retrospective view of the surgeon Hans Kehr

Zentralblatt für Chirurgie 123(Suppl. 2): 13-18

Prof. Hans Kehr's contributions to the development of operative procedures for the treatment of gall bladder and bile duct diseases at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century are unquestionable. An anaesthesiological look back at Kehr demonstrates, that this vivacious surgeon drew his attentions also to the perioperative care of his patients and to the choice and administration of adequate anaesthesiological procedures. Already in 1896 in his report to the Annual German Surgical Congress he mentioned anaesthesiological aspects. In his main book publications ("Technique of gall-stone operations"; 1905 respectively "Practice of bileduct surgery"; 1913) there are special chapters on "Anaesthesia in gallstone operations resp. Anaesthesia in bile duct surgery". Some of Kehr's statements, published here, seem to be accurate even today, for example these from 1913: "Adequate anaesthesia is nearly more valuable than the best surgical technique and the most skillful assistance". "... it is clear for me, that a good anaesthetist remarkably improves the results of an operation, while a bad one deteriorates them."
