And just like the Arab medical writers before them, they looked for fundamental guidance back to Hippocrates, Galen and the great classical physicians, seeing healing in all its branches as an essentially conservative art. Yet in this medieval world, one ﬁnds active, fresh discussion of how best to treat wounds and manage surgical cases. How should one best treat perforative wounds inﬂicted by arrows or crossbow bolts? Or, outside the theatre of war, how should one treat nasal polyps, haemorrhoids, accidental wounds, bad burns, compound fractures, cataract, tumours of various kinds, and dental complications leading to jaw abscesses?
Yet one still looks in vain in the writings of these men, and of their contemporaries, for any coherent sense of a “surgical complication” as we think of them today. For as in the days of Hippocrates and Celsus, there were good, bad and bogus surgeons who cured, mauled or killed their patients; there were great wounds that could go wrong because of the patient’s unique humoral imbalance; Divine Providence might cause a ligatured artery to burst and kill the patient; while, as Woodall reminds us, gangrene might proceed “by reason of an inward cause” to necessitate a second operation or else kill the patient.
