In Reply to: Kitner versus Kittner surgical tools - samsa
Can't seem to resolve this...funny thing is, while I was searching I ran across articles about someone named "Kitner" or "Kittner" where they spelled the same person's name both ways in the same article!
In this situation, I think you've done what you can. If you don't have a specific reference that seems for any reason most authoritative, it looks like one of those eenie-meenie-minie-mo situations.

Kitner versus Kittner surgical tools
Subject: Kitner versus Kittner surgical tools
References are inconsistent as to Kitner versus Kittner for the surgical sponges, clamps, etc. Anyone have a reference identifying the ACTUAL PERSON these are named for?
(And please don't just respond telling me how your reference book spells it! I have plenty of my own, thank you!)
There is also a Kittner probe. nm

According to the FDA it is Kittner. I basically go by them so I know who to point the finger at if
