More information

Louis Hubert Farabeuf (1841 – 1910), French surgeon who is said to have introduced hygiene in French medical schools. His statue dominates the central court of the National School of Medicine in Paris whose main amphitheater is also named after him. Farabeuf wrote some short surgical booklets (précis) and designed several medical instruments (such as the Farabeuf elevator) that are still in use today.

His name is associated with Farabeuf's triangle of the neck, a triangle formed by the internal jugular vein, common facial vein and the hypoglossal nerve, as well as Farabeuf retractors and Farabeuf forceps.

Farabeuf as a Fictional Character
His passionate writings and descriptions of amputation surgery attracted the attention of writers and scholars.

Mexican writer, Salvador Elizondo, wrote a cryptic book: Farabeuf o la Crónica de un instante. It is not a biography.
