Research Facts
Part of a set of surgical instruments belonging to Dr. Weston L. Herriman, who was one of the first nine students who graduated in 1855 from the newly formed School of Medicine at the Church of Scotland-affiliated University of Queen's College (1854, Kingston, Ont.). The nine senior students had transferred from the Anglican Upper Canada School of Medicine (Toronto) to the new school at Queen's.
Gigli saw is a flexible wire saw used by surgeons for bone cutting used mainly for amputation, where the bones have to be smoothly cut at the level of amputation with a chain similar to a chainsaw blade. The Gigli wire saw was invented by Italian obstetrician Leonardo Gigli to simplify performance of a lateral pubotomy in obstructed labour.
Gigli saws were sometimes hidden in the clothing of British secret agents during World War II.
