Pierre Bouchet (January 6, 1752 - January 6, 1794) was a French physician born in Lyon.

Biography[edit]

He was trained in medicine in Paris as Pierre-Joseph Desault pupil then came home in Lyon Hôtel-Dieu where he became Head Surgeon.

He was the first in France to modify then use a knotted-string snare device to ligate and remove uterus and vagina polyps.[1]

He also practiced internal necrosis surgery and tibia drilling.

His son, Claude-Antoine Bouchet, was the first, in France, to ligate external iliac artery to cure groin aneurysm.[2]

Pierre Bouchet was told always kind and good-hearted, so that his fellow citizens held him in the highest regard and esteem.[1] He suffered a stroke and died under arrest[2] on 1794 physically and psychologically exhausted by the Revolutionary armies siege of Lyon after the Revolt of the city against the National Convention.
