Charla Nash Face TransplantCharla Nash Face Transplant, Medical history was made last month when Charla Nash, the victim of a horrible chimp attack, received a full facial transplantation and two hand transplants at the same time. Nash face transplant was the third in history to do in the United States. Conducting risk both surgeries at once has never been done before, but is said to be perfectly ethical as performing hand transplants later Nash is likely to affect different donor tissue in the face.

Dr. Warren Breidenbach, who led the first hand transplant in the United States in 1999, explains that the tissue using more than one donor in a transplant increases the chances that the recipient’s body rejecting the new tissue.
Nash Connecticut resident was brutally attacked by chimp pet of a friend in 2009 and lost her sight in both eyes. The animal tore her nose, mouth, ears, hands and both. Chat spent two years in a center before undergoing surgery for 20 hours to acquire new hands and a new face in the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.

Unfortunately hand transplant was unsuccessful Nash and the lack of blood flow called for its elimination. Doctors say they will try again as soon as the hands of new donors available. New Face of Nash, however, seems to “fantastic”, according to her daughter Briana. Nash’s new face is expected to cast their own bone structure, so similar in appearance than it did before the attack.When interviewed, chat, told reporters he was eager to return home.
