2013-12-04 12:19:55

Radiological Society of North America For the first time, researchers have found that the blood vessels in face transplant recipients reorganize themselves, leading to an understanding of the biologic changes that happen after full face transplantation. The results of this study were presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). Face transplantation is a recent development in reconstructive surgery for patients who have lost some or all of...

The...
