Zur Operation der angeborenen Pylorusstenose.

Med. Klin., 8, 1702-05, 1912.

The first pyloromyotomy for pyloric stenosis, incising the pyloric muscle while leaving the mucosa intact and leaving the muscle to heal: “Rammstedt’s operation.” In 1920 Rammstedt discovered that the family name had originally been spelt Ramstedt; he therefore reverted to the original spelling for the rest of his life (see Lancet, 1963, 1, 674).
