Abstract

At the end of the 19th century, uterine fibroids cause huge therapeutic issues: on the one hand they can reach an impressive massive volume; on the other hand they provoke endless haemorrhages. Dr Apostoli develops galvanotherapy which becomes the reference in French and international medicine before its rapid downfall as gynaecological surgery makes great progress at the beginning of the 20th Century.
