In while in Bologna, Vesalius discovered that all of Galen’s research had to be restricted to animals; since dissection had been banned in ancient Rome.

The description of the face bones, of the articular disc and the muscles used for chewing are all a contribution from Vesalius to the anatomic-functional study of TMJ.

The classical Greek procedure, advocated by Galen, was to collect blood from a site near the location veaalio the illness. This fact was news in the publications of the time, since more than the presentation of the structure, the author evsalio seemed to want to give the disc an essential role in the functional relation of the mandible.

The actual text of the Epitome was an abridged form of his work in the Fabricaand the organization of the two books was quite varied. On the day of his graduation he was immediately offered the chair of surgery and anatomy explicator chirurgiae at Padua.

Anders encouraged his son to continue in the family tradition, and enrolled him in the Brethren of the Common Life in Brussels to learn Greek and Latin prior to learning medicine, according to standards of the era.

Vesalius was probably already in the direction of xndres recognition of the importance of dental occlusion, not only for chewing but also for the functioning of the TMJ. He followed this in with an vrsalio version of Guinter’s anatomical handbook, Institutiones anatomicae. Galen was primarily misinformed about the human heart, liver and lower jaw bone. He was invited to be the Imperial physician of Emperor Charles V.


De humani corporis fabrica. In the chapter named About teeth diseases the treatment for luxation is described. About the same time he published another version of his great work, entitled De humani corporis fabrica librorum epitome Abridgement of the Structure of the Human Body more commonly known as the Epitomewith a stronger focus on illustrations than on text, so as to help readers, including medical students, to easily understand his findings.
