Deligatio, Epideisis, Deligatura, Vulnerum deligatio seu vinctura, Fasciarum Applicatio,Plagarum Vinctura, Fasciatio, from deligare, deligatum, (de, and ligo,) 'to bind.' The deligation of wounds formerly embraced the application of apparatus, dressings, &c., -the denomination Deligatar Plagarum being synonymous with Medicus Vulnerarius, and in derivation, with the Wundarzt, 'wound physician' or surgeon, of the Germans. Deligation is hardly ever used now as an English word. In France, it is applied to the regular and methodical application of bandages, and to the ligature of arteries.
