Abstract

Professor Romuald Weglowski (1876–1935) is justly considered a pioneer in Polish vascular surgery. An indisputably vast experience of surgery (at least 217 vascular operations) allowed him to accumulate a great number of observations which he shared with others through his numerous publications. Fate presented him with the opportunity to make use of a wide range of surgical techniques which were modern at the time, while working as a surgeon during World War I in Moscow and then, for two and a half years, in Zamosc during the Polish-Ukrainian-Bolshevik War. After the war he worked in Lwow, where he continued to deal with distant complications resulting from blood vessel damage and also extended his interest to the surgical treatment of other vascular problems (arterial embolism, arteriosclerosis, vasculitis, Raynoud’s disease and ascites). In the most difficult period of Poland's reconstruction he was Head of the Reserve Hospital of the Polish Army in Zamosc. This paper aims at a providing fairly detailed account of Weglowski's Zamosc period, including his achievement in vascular surgery, as well as presenting the surgeon himself.
