Médicos chinos "cultivan" una nariz sobre el propio paciente


Médicos chinos "cultivan" una nariz sobre el propio paciente

Pronto Xiaolian, este hombre de origen chino, tendrá una nueva nariz. La misma que está creciendo sobre su cabeza. Xiaolian sufrió hace unos meses un accidente de tránsito. Durante el mismo, resultó herido y se fracturó la nariz. El joven descuidó el traumatismo que sufrió, y pronto los tejidos comenzaron a necrosarse. Una infección afectó al cartílago, desfigurando por completo su nariz y su rostro. A pesar de que acudió a médicos especialistas, la pérdida de su apéndice era ya irreversible.
Pero los doctores que le atendieron tuvieron una idea para que Xiaolian recuperara su imagen. Los cirujanos que lo atendían en un hospital de Fuzhou, en la provincia china de Fujia, usaron el tejido de la frente del paciente para moldear una nueva nariz. Le pusieron un cartílago, tomado de sus costillas, y ahora ya ha crecido y está a punto para ser trasplantada al lugar adecuado. Pronto Xiaolian volverá a lucir una nariz normal.

Surgeons are using the skin and cartilage from Xiaolian ribs and are moving the cartilage up to his forehead while waiting for the blood supply to grow in. After they take both the skin and cartilage from his forehead to do the nasal reconstruction.

Ultimately, they decided that his forehead would be the best location. Now, the young man has an almost full-grown nose on his head, as doctors wait for the process to be complete. Afterward, they will perform the nose transplant.

"Surgeons say that the nose has developed well and that the transplant surgery will be
