Bacterial wound infection was a real scourge of mankind until 150 years ago. Rarely did an occasional wound heal without inflammation. The usual wound healing with the discharge of a yellow, viscous pus (pus bonum et laudabile-good, praiseworthy pus) without general infection was considered to be the optimal healing process. If the infection continued, life was threatened, and in the case of extremity wounds, amputation was often the only way to save it. After open fractures of the thigh, 50 out of 100 lost their lives, of the remaining 50 injured 40 lost their limbs and only 10 got away with limb and life. But even with these remaining 10 injured, the limb was rarely fully usable, mostly a significant shortening, bending and twisting remained. The causes of these serious consequences of accidents went undetected for a long time, although humans have lived with them since they were around 3 million years ago.

Even a walk of a thousand miles begins with the first step. (Chinese proverb)
