In 1902 he was appointed chair of the department of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Giessen, and five years later, he attained a similar position at the University of Kiel. From 1891 he was secretary of the German Society for Gynaecology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Gynäkologie). Beginning in 1896, he was co-editor of the Archives of Gynaecology (Archiv für Gynäkologie). Among his better known publications were works on ovarian pathology, uterine tumors and the formation of carcinomas following ovariotomy. In 1908 he was the first physician to give a comprehensive description of familial icterus gravis neonatorum. Pfannenstiel is best remembered for the eponymous "Pfannenstiel's incision", a transverse incision used in genitourinary surgery that is still widely used today. He published his paper in 1900 when he described 51 cases. His intent was to decrease the risk of an incisional hernia; results also proved to be cosmetically better. On 3 July 1909 at the age of 47, Pfannenstiel died from septicemia after having injured his finger during surgery for an tubo-ovarian abscess. He was the father of Wilhelm Pfannenstiel. Pfannenstiel married his wife Elisabeth Behlendorff in 1889. (en)
