ABSTRACT
Hundred years ago in Great Britain, Sir Thomas Lauder Brunton was acclaimed as an authority on the action of drugs on the heart. His famous work, "Pharmacology and Therapeutics" (1867), was read and appreciated all over Europe and America. He stated that nitrite of amyl has a beneficial effect on the heart. This led to the discovery of many other nitrite compounds that are now used for the treatment of angina pectoris. He also stated that mitral stenosis should be treated by surgery, i.e. by splitting the stenosed cusps. This statement paved the way for cardiac surgeons to devise the technique of closed mitral valvotomy. The results were encouraging and closed mitral valvotomy became the sheet anchor of treatment for a majority of the cases of mitral stenosis.

Figure 0001: Hyderabad Chloroform Commission

Mentions: Experiments were conducted on dogs and monkeys to study the action of chloroform on the heart and respiration [Figure 1]. He recorded the blood pressure by catheterizing the carotid artery.[2] The graphs that he recorded on Ludwig’s and Ficks’s kymographs are still available for study and have been published[1] in the book, “Report on Hyderabad Chloroform Commission”, which was published in the year 1891.[1] Eminent members of the medical profession and nobles of Nizam’s court lavishly entertained him. The photographs [Figures 2 and 3] taken on these occasions are available in the National Institute of Indian Medical Heritage (formerly known as the Indian Institute of History of Medicine) in Osmania Medical College, Hyderabad.
