Eugène Aburel Bogdan (born January 23, 1899, Galaţi–died 16 December 1975, Bucharest) was a Romanian surgeon and obstetrician. He introduced innovative techniques in gynecologic surgery.[1] In 1931, Aburel was the first to describe blocking the lumbar plexus during early labor, followed by a caudal epidural injection for the expulsion phase.[2][3]
