The Institute of Anatomy and Anthropology at Rīga Stradiņš University (AAI) or – Theatrum Anatomicum – is the place where future physicians are forged; it is an essential stop on the road to becoming a physician. This is the place where the dead help the living – Hic locus est ubi mors gaudet, sucurrere vitae… The Theatrum Anatomicum is located in the buildings of the former Greek Orthodox Seminary built in 1877 – 1879 and designed according to the project of the Baltic German architect and academic Heinrich Karl Scheel (1829 –1909).

History

The time period between 2002 and 2016 brought winds of change to the architectonically old and stately Theatrum Anatomicum building. There are things that have naturally taken root in the life of RSU AAI and, even being unconventional at times, have become a part of the Institute’s everyday life.

One of such things is the reestablishment of contacts with the relatives of the Swedish professor Gaston Backman – the professor was invited to Latvia in 1920 and adapted Theatrum Anatomicum for the needs of the growing medical staff. From the three brothers – Gaston, Eugene and Charles Pierre – Pierre was the only one to have children, and, like his brothers, he was also fond of Latvia and wrote a lot about it being a journalist. His daughter Christine and her children and grandchildren continue the Bakman family in Sweden. The director of AAI was able to find Christine Backman who resided in Uppsala, Sweden. Together with her granddaughter Anna Backman Klein she arrived to the international conference devoted to the 120th anniversary of professor G. Backman in 2003. Since then, the cabinet of the director of AAI is decorated by a portrait of young G. Bakman painted in oil and the original diploma on earning a scientific degree signed by the King of Sweden Gustav V.

Another important activity was the introduction of Thanksgiving services and creation of the final resting place at Martin Cemetery for individuals who have dedicated their lives to academics and science (the picture shows the monument at the Martin Cemetery).

The first Thanksgiving service took place on 17 June 2002, when mainly those who died during Soviet times were cremated. The service was held in the crematorium with participation of the Lutheran Pastor Elijs Godiņš, the Catholic Priest Zbigņevs Stankevičs and His Holiness Alexander from the Synod of the Latvian Orthodox Church. The second Thanksgiving service was held on 4 December 2012 when remains of nine people were cremated; the service was held in the Theatrum Anatomicum with participation of the Bishop of Liepāja of the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church Pāvils Brūvers, the representative of the Latvian Orthodox Church, Priest Jānis Dravants, Bishop of a Catholic Church, Deacon of the Riga St. Mary Magdalene parish Andris Kravalis and Vicar General of the Union of Baptist Churches, and the Priest of the Riga Matthew parish Pēteris Eisāns. On 3 July 2015, RSU organised a Commemoration in the Riga Martin Church for those who have donated their bodies to science and medicine for RSU Theatrum Anatomicum. The ceremony was attended by the Priest of the Riga Cross parish of the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church Ivars Jēkabsons, the Bishop of the Catholic Church, Deacon of the Riga St. Mary Magdalene parish Andris Kravalis, the representative of the Latvian Orthodox Church, Priest Jānis Dravants, Vicar General of the Union of Baptist Churches, Priest Edgars Godiņš, RSU academic staff, students, and interested persons. The remains were buried in the Martin Cemetery, close to the grave of Emīls Dārziņš. An interesting fact is that the metal fence of the cemetery has a certain relation to Theatrum Anatomicum: construction of the building was funded by a prominent engineer of Latvian origin Emīls Gailis from the United Kingdom, a descendant of the Latvian post-war emigrants who referred to himself as Riga, Pārdaugava boy. Another link of E. Gailis to Theatrum Anatomicum are two cadaver storage cabinets purchased at a symbolic price from his company Leec Ltd. The creation of such cabinets made Leec Ltd. well-known in England and reminded again how bright a mind of a Latvian boy or man and a patriot of Latvia can be!

The idea nursed by the AAI of having a monument was supported by the University, and a monument made of Ukrainian granite decorates the spring grave of 2016 at the Martin Cemetery. The monument bears an inscription in both Latin and Latvian:

piemineklis-martina-kapos.png

Requiem aeternam dona eis,
Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis

(Eternal rest, grant unto them,
And let perpetual light shine upon them!)
In perpetuam memoriam

(In perpetual memory)
Rīga Stradiņš University

The Premises of the Institute of Anatomy and Anthropology accommodate the Museum of the Institute where many organ and tissue exhibits donated by Latvian hospitals (see Theatrum Anatomicum museum section) are displayed, as well as the collection of personal belongings of professors P. Gērke, J. Eglītis, and I. Liepiņa-Eglīte. A small collection of micropreparations is worth mentioning, as it reflects changes in the creation of micropreparations throughout the century, and a collection of microscopes/demonstration systems starting with a microscope manufactured at the end of the 18th century. The  collection of exhibits of P. Stradiņš and his contemporaries, including furniture of those times, was donated to AAI by professor J. Gadovskis. The restored collection was opened on 31 January 2003 marking the beginning of exhibits of the Museum of Anatomy and Embryology of AAI and becoming a place of gathering and research for RSU students of medicine.

Theatrum Anatomicum also hosts medicine related book openings. On 3 December 2003, Hipokratiskie raksti (Hippocratic Writings) translated into Latvian by A. Gaile and A. van Hofa were presented, and on 3 February 2006, the book of K. Arāja Latviešu kauli (Latvian Bones) was opened. On 3 October the same year, there was a presentation of the embryology book “Medicīniskā embrioloģija” (Medical Embryology) by M. Pilmane and G.H. Šumahers published in Latvian; the previous book, Cilvēka embrioloģija (Human Embryology) by P. Gērke was published by the publishing house of the Academy of Sciences of the Latvian SSR 47 years ago, i.e., in 1959. There are numerous other books whose opening has not received any special highlights, although each and every of these books has highly contributed to the work of RSU AAI staff.

Theatrum Anatomicum is the place where the dead serve the living and has always enjoyed high public interest. The cooperation of RSU AAI with mass media has been extensive and successful, and has contributed to increased public awareness of compassion and increase in the number of people devoting themselves to academics and research. Topical matters covered are: anthropology, histology, embryology, and anatomy. The name of Theatrum Anatomicum appears in the mass media on average at least 10 times a year: M. Pilmane, S. Umbraško, as well as J. Vētra, Dz. Kažoka grant interviews on a regular basis. The most diligent and interested cooperation partners are LTV1, LNT Nedēļas TOP 10, LR2 programme Zināmais nezināmajā, TV programmes Šeit un tagad and Bez tabu, magazines Santa, Ilustrētā Zinātne, Ieva, Veselība, Ievas Veselība, Otkritij gorod, newspapers Vesti segodņa and Vinogradnaja loza, Kristīgais Radio, mass media of RSU students Skaļāk!. Theatrum Anatomicum has an especially close cooperation with the editorial staff of Medicus Bonus (chief editor – Līga Ribkinska, editor – Aija Kažoka), as well as Latvijas Ārsts and Latvian Medical Association (its chair – Pēteris Apinis).

AAI as a scientific institute also attracts researchers from other structural academic units. Since 2002 the anatomical theatre has been closely linked to researchers and equally outstanding personalities: Dr. habil. biol. Nora Švinka (09.05.1936–04.04.2010), Dr. med. Ludmila Eņģele, Irina Paegle, Dr. med. vet. Anda Valdovska, Dr. med. vet. Inese Zītare (30.11.1943–10.03.2015), and Dr. med. Olafs Volrāts.

An absolute priority of RSU AAI after regaining of independence was the revival of the joint Baltic morphology scientific conferences. The first such conference which was attended by 24 foreign colleagues was held on December 2003. There have been eight scientific gatherings since then, of which AAI has organised IV (in November 2007) and VII (in November 2013) Baltic Morphology Conference.

Unique infrastructure

AAI infrastructure is composed of Exact Grunding, a special cutting device for very hard tissues, Anatomage virtual autopsy table, preparations of Gunther von Hagens, microscopy classes with demonstration systems, multi-head microscopes, specialised research microscopes, two electron microscopes from JEOL (JEM-1011, JSM-6490LV).

AAI has access to unique visual learning aids, the content of which is essential in ensuring and supplementing the process of mastering medical study courses, in conformity with the latest industry technologies and materials used:

Anatomage Table is a virtual dissection table which can be transported on wheels, and offers visualisation with mainly duplex full-colour touchscreen. It ensures full volume/scale human body display 1:1 with resolution of 0.2 mm fragments, display of the structure of osseous, muscle tissue, cardiovascular, lymphatic system, nervous, digestive, endocrine, genital, urinoexcretory system, sensory organs with Latin names, provides the possibility to view parts of the body and systems of organs separately, partially and together, with zoom in and zoom out. The table ensures demonstration of processes in real time, development of the body and its systems, at least three cases at the same time, ensures manipulation trainings, allows adding other systems of organs to existing images of patients and virtual manipulation tools. The table contains an internal library for patients with 100 special pathological cases.

Three preparations of Gunther von Hagens (a sagittal head section with part of neck, a prepared external carotid artery with branches, as well as preparations of muscles of upper and lower extremity with prepared superficial muscles, arteries and nerves), which were prepared using a special method of embalming and preservation or plastination (replacement of water and fat with polymers), allows studying the human body and parts thereof, structure in a natural way and serves as a perfect means of mastering anatomy at the highest level. These preparations can be touched, they have no smell or decay, and they retain properties of the initial sample. Preparations are really unique also because they were purchased from the laboratory of the first anatomy plastinator or the inventor of the plastination method G. von Hagens in Germany.

The Institute of Anatomy has about 180 microscopes for students, mainly produced by Leica, Nikon and Optika. The institute is also equipped with two Leica multi-head microscopes allowing the teacher to conduct planned colloquia for students.

If a student or a potential doctoral student uncovers his or her potential and talent in research, then he/she can do research and capture images using one of the four Leica research microscopes, using reflected light or fluorescence, stereo or inverted light microscopy method (Leica DM6000 B or Leica LEITZ DM RB, Leica MZ16A, Leica DMI 4000B).

12 rooms of the Institute are equipped with interactive EPSON projectors and powerful DELL computers for presentations and demonstration of  microscopic preparations. Parts of auditoriums have wireless Sennheiser radiosets which ensure loud and clear audibility, as well as demonstration touch panels, which ensure simple work with equipment, and annotators to list the most important parts of any preparation for students.

The Exact Grunding system, acquired from Heidelberg (Germany), is intended for the preparation of very hard tissue preparations, polishing them in a special way. Thus, qualitative study, for instance of the border area between biomaterial and tissues is ensured, allowing AAI to participate in the development of various projects of biomaterials topical for the state.

Both Japanese Joel electron microscopes, transmission electron microscope and scanning electron microscope, are located in the Joint Laboratory of Electron Microscopy and always arouse additional interest both in students and on a wider scale during AAI’s public events.

Anatomy Olympiads (13)

Anatomy Olympiads are a unique event organised by students. The initiative group of 2004 was led by Maksims Timčenko, whose idea was to develop training materials allowing to test the knowledge of other students. Finally it was decided to attract to the event as many students as possible and the nature of the Anatomy Olympiad has not changed much since then: 2nd year students develop assignments of various degrees of difficulty, and teams made up of 1st year students have to solve them. This is an all-day event in the Theatrum Anatomicum. Winners receive medals and commemorative prizes, and everybody, both students and teachers, really enjoy the event! Swedish and German colleagues who had the chance to participate in the event, have taken the idea back to their universities. Gradually the concept of the Anatomy Olympiad gained popularity and in 2016 it became an international event attended by student teams from universities of neighbouring and other countries wishing to compete for awards and make new acquaintances. 

The organisation of Anatomy Olympiads is supported by RSU management, Faculty of Medicine Dean’s office, all the AAI staff, and specifically M. Pilmane, R. Žagare, Dz. Kažoka.

Aizsaulē aizgājušo AAI darbinieku piemiņai

Aina Visocka (17.11.1926.–25.06.2006.)

aai-aina-visocka.png1953–1971 RMI/MF Anatomijas katedras asistente

1972–1979 RMI/MF Anatomijas katedras vecākā pasniedzēja

1980–1998 AML Anatomijas katedras docente

1998–2000 LU Anatomijas un histoloģijas katedras stundu pasniedzēja

Aina Visocka dzimusi 1926. gada 17. novembrī Rīgā. 1946. gadā beigusi 2. pilsētas vidusskolu. Tad iestājās Rīgas Medicīnas institūtā kuru absolvēja 1952. gadā. Pēc absolvēšanas gadu strādā Sarkanā Krustā, bet no 1953. gada Rīgas Medicīnas institūtā.

Docente A. Visocka strādāja normālās anatomijas katedrā sākumā kā asistente, no 1972. gada kā vecākā pasniedzēja, no 1980. gada kā katedras docente. 1962. gadā aizstāvēja disertāciju „Cilvēka spermatiskie gangliji”.

A. Visocka bija pieredzējusi, kvalificēta pasniedzēja. Lasīja normālās anatomijas lekcijas stomatoloģijas fakultātes 1. kursa studentiem augstā zinātniskā līmenī, kā arī vadīja praktiskās nodarbības. Viņa darbojās Latvijas anatomu, histologu un embriologu biedrībā Rīgā.

Mūža nogalē A. Visocka regulāri uzturēja kontaktus ar RSU anatomijas un antropoloģijas institūta kolēģiem, gaidīja ciemos un vienmēr viņai atradās labs vārds, ko bilst kolēģiem…

Rūta Lindberga (23.08.1926.–19.01.2009.)

aai-ruta-lindberga.pngR. Lindberga dzimusi Rīgā zobārstes Emīlijas un aizsargu aviācijas kapteiņa Jāņa Lindberga ģimenē. Mācības sākusi Rīgas Franču licejā, vēlāk studējusi LVU Bioloģijas fakultātē. Darba gaitas sākusi Rīgas Medicīnas institūtā (vēlāk Latvijas Medicīnas akadēmijā) Anatomijas katedrā sākumā kā laborante , tad asistente un pasniedzēja. No 1987. gada 6. jūlija līdz 2000. gadam Rūta Lindberga bija Paula Stradiņa Medicīnas vēstures muzeja filiāles Anatomijas muzeja vadītāja. Pēc viņas iniciatīvas Anatomijas muzejs vēlāk ieguva Latvijas anatoma un antropologa profesora Jēkaba Prīmaņa vārdu.

Ar toreizējā Paula Stradiņa MVM direktora K. Ē. Ārona atbalstu R. Lindberga ierosināja Anatomikuma vestibilā 1984. gadā izveidot pirmo lielformāta fresku, veltītu izciliem senatnes ārstiem un zinātniekiem, kuras autors bija profesors Indulis Zariņš. Arī 90. gados muzeja logos izveidotas vitrāžas, kurās redzami 20. gadsimta pirmās puses ievērojamākie anatomi un histologi.

Nenoliedzams R. Lindbergas nopelns ir Anatomijas muzejam veltītās mazformāta grāmatiņas izdošana 1995. gadā un docentei Lūcijai Jērumai-Krastiņai veltītās biobibliogrāfijas izdevuma sagatavošana 1999. gadā.

aai-lindberga-visocka.png

R. Lindberga un A. Visocka, 2000. gads (no M. Pilmanes arhīva)

R. Lindbergas iniciatīva bija sarakstei ar ārvalstīs dzīvojošiem ārstiem un bijušajiem LVU pasniedzējiem anatomiem, histologiem un antropologiem-Irmu Liepiņu-Eglīti, Nikolaju Caunu, Pēteri Lapsu u. c. Tā rezultātā no ASV uz Latviju atceļoja mākslinieka un medicīnas grāmatu ilustratora Jāņa Cīruļa gleznas, daļa no tām atrodas muzeja krājumā. 1989. gadā R. Lindbergas vadībā tika sarīkotas Līvu dienas atceroties Latvijā veiktos lībiešu pētījumus. Pagājušā gadsimta 80. gados viņa piedalījās arī anatomijas katedras mācību darbā vadot praktiskās nodarbības studentiem.

Ar Rūtas Lindbergas līdzdalību nodibināta Jēkaba Prīmaņa piemiņas balva par sasniegumiem anatomijā, histoloģijā un antropoloģijā. Arī pati R. Lindberga saņēma šo balvu 2004. gadā par nopelniem Anatomijas muzeja darbā un ievērojamāko anatomu piemiņas saglabāšanā.

Rūtas Lindbergas dzīvesgājums pārtrūka 2009. gada 19. janvārī, un droši varam teikt, ka viņa bija nesavtīga latviešu intelektuālā mantojuma kopēja un neordināra personība.

Ausma Bērziņa (23.10.1925.–07.11.2010.)

aai-ausma-berzina.png1951– beigusi RMI

1953 – RMI Normālās anatomijas katedras docētāja

1955 – anatome, medicīnas zinātņu kandidāte

1971–1993 – RMI/AML Ārstniecības fakultātes I–II kursa prodekāne

1976 – katedrā ievēlēta par docenti

2010 – piešķirts IV pakāpes Triju Zvaigžņu ordenis

Ausma Bērziņa dzimusi 1925. gada 23. oktobrī Suntažu pagastā jaunsaimnieka ģimenē. Pamatskolu beigusi 1940. gadā Suntažos, pēc tam mācījusies Rīgas 3. vidusskolā, kuru ar Zelta medaļu absolvējusi 1946. gadā. Jau vidusskolas gados lolojusi sapni kļūt par mediķi, un tas īstenojies 1951. gadā, ar izcilību beidzot Rīgas Medicīnas institūta Ārstniecības fakultāti. Tajos gados jaunizveidotajam institūtam trūka pasniedzēju, tādēļ jaunā speciāliste tika atstāta aspirantūrā Normālās anatomijas katedrā, kaut gan viņa pati bija vēlējusies kļūt par ķirurģi. Trīs gadu laikā vajadzēja izstrādāt un aizstāvēt disertāciju, ko arī A. Bērziņa sekmīgi paveica un 1955. gadā ieguva medicīnas zinātņu kandidāta grādu. Jau aspirantūras gados viņai vajadzēja mācīt studentiem anatomiju. Tas nebija viegli, jo vajadzēja arī pašai daudz mācīties, un gadu starpība ar studentiem arī bija pavisam neliela – tikai trīs četri gadi. Labi noderēja studiju gados sabiedriskā darbā gūtā pieredze un rūdījums. Anatomikums Ausmai Bērziņai kļuva par otrajām mājām. 1976. gadā viņa katedrā tika ievēlēta par docenti. Darbs ar studentiem neaprobežojās tikai ar anatomijas pasniegšanu katedrā, viņai tika uzticēti arī prodekānes pienākumi I – II kursā, kurus viņa ar lielu atbildību veica no 1971. līdz 1993. gadam. Docente Ausma Bērziņa savas darbības laikā veikusi zinātniskos pētījumus, kas galvenokārt saistīti ar vēnu sistēmas un perifēriskās nervu sistēmas morfoloģiju. Viņa ir vairāk nekā 50 zinātnisko darbu autore. Par pašaizliedzīgu darbu jaunās mediķu saimes audzināšanā docente Ausma Bērziņa 1985. gadā apbalvota ar LPSR Veselības aizsardzības ministrijas Goda rakstu. Latvijas valdība novērtējusi šīs AAI docētājas mūža darbu, 2010. gadā piešķirot viņai IV pakāpes Triju Zvaigžņu ordeni.

Genovefa Jēča (18.04.1921.–06.04.2011.)

aai-genovefa-jeca.png1973–1990 RMI/LMA Anatomijas katedras vadītāja

1990–1991 RMI/LMA Anatomijas katedras profesore, konsultante

1992–1995 RMI/LMA Anatomijas katedras profesore

Genoveva Jēča dzimusi 1921. gadā 18. aprīlī Rēzeknes apriņķa Maltas pagastā. Pēc Ziedukalna pamatskolas beigšanas 1936. gadā iestājusies Rēzeknes valsts ģimnāzijā, 1941. gadā iestājusies un 1946. gadā pabeigusi Latvijas Valsts universitātes Medicīnas fakultāti, iegūstot ārsta kvalifikāciju.

Darba un zinātniskās gaitas sāktas 1947. gadā Latvijas valsts universitātes medicīnas fakultātes Histoloģijas katedrā, vēlāk tajā pašā gadā pārcelta uz Anatomijas katedru. No 1950. gada 16. decembra visa tālākā darbība aizritējusi Rīgas medicīnas institūta/Latvijas Medicīnas akadēmijas Anatomijas katedrā, sākotnēji strādājot par asistenti, tad 1961. gadā ievēlēta par docenti, 1962. gadā piešķirts docentes akadēmiskais nosaukums. Atbilstoši tā laika likumdošanai 1974. gadā konkursa kārtībā G.Jēča tika apstiprināta par profesori ar profesora amata pienākumu izpildīšanu, bet profesores akadēmiskais nosaukums tika piešķirts 1978, izveidojot atbilstošu štata vietu. gadā. Par katedras vadītāju profesore G.Jēča strādā no 1973. līdz 1990. gadam, pēc tam gadu – par profesori konsultanti, līdz 1995. gadam – par katedras profesori. Sešdesmito gadu nogalē divus gadus viņa ir Vispārējās medicīnas fakultātes prodekāne.

Ikdienā mācību un metodiskais darbs cieši savijies ar zinātniskās pētniecības un sabiedrisko darbu. 1957. gadā aizstāvēta disertācija medicīnas zinātņu kandidāta grāda iegūšanai, 1970. gadā – iegūts medicīnas zinātņu doktora grāds. Kopējais zinātnisko darbu skaits – vairāk nekā 70, no tiem starptautiski atzītos žurnālos un zinātnisko rakstu krājumos – 10.

Daudz laika un enerģijas profesore veltījusi topošajiem ārstiem ne vien mācību procesā, bet arī studentu zinātniskajā darbībā. Kopš 1975. gada katedrā katru gadu notika konkurss „Labākais anatomiskais preparāts”. Studenti piedalījušies studentu zinātniskajās konferencēs ar referātiem Rīgā, Viļņā, Kauņā, Tartu, Ļeņingradā, Maskavā, Kijevā, Minskā u. c., nereti iegūstot prēmēto 1. un 2. vietu.

Profesores G.Jēčas pedagoģisko, zinātnisko un sabiedrisko darbu atzinīgi novērtēja institūta/akadēmijas vadība, vairākkārtīgi izsakot pateicību par labu tiešo un sabiedrisko darbu. PSRS Veselības aizsardzības ministrija 1975. gadā apbalvojusi ar nozīmīti „Veselības aizsardzības teicamnieks”, Latvijas PSR Veselības aizsardzības ministrija 1981. gadā – ar Goda rakstu, 1986. gadā ar Latvijas PSR Augstākās padomes prezidija lēmumu apbalvota ar medaļu „Darba veterāns”. 1997. gadā kļuvusi par Latvijas ZA emeritēto zinātnieci, 2001. gadā AML Senāts piešķīris Jēkaba Prīmaņa balvu.

Pēc G. Jēčas nāves viņas mazbērni, no kuriem daži arī tika izvēlējušies ārsta ceļu, tika izdevuši atmiņu krājumu, kas veltīts viņu vecmāmiņai - “Anatome augstskolā, zinātnē, dzīvē” (2015. gads).

Ludmila Ņemčenko (09.05.1947.–19.03.2016.)

aai-ludmila-nemcenko.pngLudmila Ņemčenko dzimusi 9.maijā 1947. gadā Rīgā, mirusi 2016. g. 19. martā, apglabāta Jaunciema kapos.

No 1954. gada līdz 1961. gadam Ludmila mācījās Rīgas 10. vidusskolā, turpmāk līdz 1964. gadam mācījās un pabeidza Rīgas 4. Medicīnas skolu. Kopš 1964. gada Ludmila Ņemčenko strādāja par medmāsu Valsts Studentu poliklīnikā Rīgā līdz poliklīnikas likvidācijai 1998. gadam.
