Abstract
Extraction, reposition, fetotomy (embryotomy) and even cesarean section have been part of human and animal obstetrics since ancient times. Destructive operations like craniotomy and embryotomy are the oldest type of obstetrical operations. At the end of the 18(th) century the subcutaneous fetotomy was developed. It remained the preferred fetotomy method in farm animals and horses till the beginning of the 20(th) century. Then the tubular fetotome was invented and the subcutaneous fetotomy was replaced by the percutaneous fetotomy. This obstetrical method was easy to learn and its results were excellent. However, the fetus had to be sacrificed. Therefore, after the introduction of antibiotics, the percutaneous fetotomy in cows was replaced by the cesarean section. In horses, the percutaneous fetotomy is still the preferred obstetrical method as foals die rapidly and a partial fetotomy (one or two cuts) is in the majority of cases sufficient to solve the obstetrical problem. Because of its minimal economic importance, obstetrics in small animals did not receive any attention till the end of the 19(th) century. In these animal species, cesarean section is the best solution in cases of serious obstetrical problems.
