Footnotes

  • "Lancisi noted the frequency of cardiac aneurysm and showed the importance of syphilis, asthma, palpitation, violent emotions, and excess as causes of aneurysms. He was the first to describe cardica syphilis... [and] shares with Vieussens the honour of laying the foundations of the pathology of heart disease" (Garrison-Morton). See illustration overleaf.
