In France, Charles-Gabriel Pravaz (1791-1853), a doctor born in Pont-de-Beauvoisin in Isère, was interested in the coagulation of aneurysmal pockets. Having noted the energetic coagulating properties of iron perchloride, he thought of instilling a few drops of this product into the aneurysm. He had Charrière make a syringe consisting of a pump body and a silver piston. The piston stroke is adjusted by a screw thread. The piston disc is made of leather. The cannula, fitted with a trocar, screws onto the end of the pump body. It is therefore possible to assess the quantity of liquid injected.
