Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Francis Sibson (1814-1876) was a British physician and anatomist widely regarded as a true pioneer of the medical profession. He overcame a tragic and difficult childhood to become an avid educator at several medical schools and dedicated his life to research. For modern scientists, he is most remembered for describing Sibson's fascia, his experimental use of curare in the treatment of hydrophobia and tetanus, and his detailed description of the positions and movements of internal organs. He died on September 7, 1876 at the age of 62 from complications of an aortic aneurysm.
