[Tableau de l'opération de la taille by Marin Marais (1725)--a bladder calculus operation represented in music].

[Article in German]

Abstract

The piece "Tableau de l'opération de la taille", written for viola by the French composer Marin Marais in 1725, presents an operation for removal of a stone in the bladder in musical form. Musicological analysis shows that in the early 18th century the lateral perineal approach was normally used for such operations in France. Medico-historical annotations complement the musicological analysis.
