"It is a problem," Dr. Jean-Michel Dubernard, who led the team that performed the pioneering transplant in France on Nov. 27, acknowledged on Wednesday. FINALLY!! Some good press for us smokers...let's see thetruth.com spin this! Suckers FLEA (edited by RYDER FAKIN on 18.1.06 1844) Promote this thread!

Does anyone know why she got the transplant in the first place? It didn't have anything to do with facial cancer, did it? (edited by Stilton on 18.1.06 2007)

Since this is the first person to have had the surgery, I'd assume she would have been warned if they felt she should avoid it.

Originally posted by The Article The 38-year-old Frenchwoman received a new nose, chin and lips from a brain-dead donor after being mauled by her dog last spring. I saw an article a few days ago where Doctors when discussing the procedure said that initially there were problems with tissue rejection, so that might have something to do with it. I agree to a point, but I find the progress of the recipient (especially since this is a radically new procedure) to be just as newsworthy.
