Amazing finger transplant

The development of medicine in recent years has come to the conclusion that today operations that were not even dreamed of were feasible. Sewed off limbs have learned a long time ago, but British experts decided to look at this problem a little differently.

The whole story began when one day a young man, James Byrne, a mason from Great Britain, sawing boards in his yard, inadvertently cut off the thumb of his left hand with a circular saw. Classic happened amputationbut the doctors managed to sew the finger back. The circumstances were such that the healing process began to be accompanied by complications, and the sewn finger began to threaten gangrene due to violation blood supply.

James Byrne, by the nature of his activity, would have been forced to say goodbye to work if it were not for the surgeon’s inventiveness: two teams of specialists worked at once for saving a full-fledged hand and transplanting a finger from one foot to another for eight hours. One of them was engaged in the processing of the brush, where in the morning there was still an implanted finger, the other team worked on the toe, which as a result was successfully sewn onto the hand.

According to the young man, he had almost learned to move a new finger, but he completely forgot about the lack of leg. Rehabilitation after the operation took about two months, and the young man still does not continue to thank the doctors. Despite all the difficulties of life, James remains a joyful person. He even invented a name for his new finger, transplanted from one foot to another, and now calls it Toby.
