The Croatian Museum of Medicine and Pharmacy, at the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts, is home to the legacy of the Croatian otorhinolaryngologist Ivo Padovan. His legacy became part of the museum property in 2018-2020 by virtue of his wife Ivica Padovan and daughter Adriana Vincenca Padovan. The donated material is a valuable starting point for researching the history of medicine, that is, otorhinolaryngology, through the activities of a prominent representative of this clinical speciality. In this paper, we bring forward a preliminary statement on the content of the legacy, with a special emphasis on the digitised recording of a middle ear surgery from 1954, which was presented as part of the Zagreb event Museum Night, held on January 29, 2021.
