Who first suggested using a plaster cast?

The famous Russian surgeon Nikolai Ivanovich Pirogov (1810-1881) was the first in history to suggest using a plaster cast.

It is important to note that before him, doctors from different countries treated fractures using plaster and other mixtures. However, it was Pirogov who was the first to use a “blind-band” fixing a broken bone. This happened in 1847 during the fighting in the Caucasus. This dressing is used practically unchanged in our time by surgeons from all over the world.

One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society. A person today needs to study almost all his life, mastering everything new and new, acquiring the necessary professional qualities.
