"Peripheral Nerve Surgery"

“Peripheral Nerve Surgery: Management of Suture of Sciatic Nerve” (Walter Reed General Hospital, ca 1943)
This film was presented by Ethicon Suture Laboratories, a division of Johnson & Johnson, and seems to be a teaching film, very particularly focused on the suture of the sciatic nerve. The original 16 mm film (along with a digital preservation copy) is currently housed in the archives of the American College of Surgeons in Chicago, IL. This digital copy was prepared at the University of Chicago in 2011.
