First face transplant performed on French woman

First face transplant performed on French woman

By 5Mu3Ji

Thursday, December 1, 2005

Surgeons in France have performed a face transplant operation on a French woman who had lost her nose, lips and chin after being savaged by a dog. According to Iain Hutchison, an oral-facial surgeon at Barts and the London Hospital, the transplant is the first one to use skin from another person.

Doctors say the woman’s new face will be a “hybrid” between her donor’s face and her own face before the attack. In the five hour long operation, the donor’s tissues, muscles, arteries and veins were attached to the patient’s lower face. It is more favourable to use skin from another person’s face instead of skin from another part of the patient’s body, as the texture and colour of the skin are more likely to match.

A statement released by the hospital in Amiens said that the 38-year-old patient, who wishes to remain anonymous, has not been able to eat or speak properly since the attack in May this year. The woman was reportedly in “excellent general health” and her graft looked normal.

Ethical concerns, psychological impact, concerns relating to immunosuppression and consequences of technical failure have prevented teams from performing face transplant operations in the past, even though it has been technically possible to carry out such procedures for years.

Mr Hutchison warned of several problems with face transplants, such as blood vessels in the donated tissue clotting and immunosuppressants failing or increasing the patient’s risk of cancer. He also pointed out ethical issues with the fact that the procedure requires a “beating heart donor”. The transplant is carried out while the donor is brain dead, but still alive by use of a ventilator.

According to Stephen Wigmore, chair of British Transplantation Society’s ethics committee, it is unknown to what extent facial expressions will function in the long term. He said that it is not certain whether a patient could be left worse off in the case of a face transplant failing.

Mr Michael Earley, a member of the Royal College of Surgeon’s facial transplantation working party, commented that if successful, the transplant would be “a major breakthrough in facial reconstruction” and “a major step forward for the facially disfigured.”

Plastic Surgery For Asian Features}

Plastic Surgery for Asian Features

by

Abigail Aaronson

If you look at the media, it may seem that plastic surgery homogenizes aesthetics, stripping away the features that make us unique. But the purpose of cosmetic surgery isn’t to erase heritage, ethnic identity, or uniqueness, but rather to enhance individual beauty. Today many cosmetic surgeons specialize in addressing different ethnicities needs, including those of Asian heritage.

One of the most commonly requested cosmetic surgery among all patients of various ethnic backgrounds is rhinoplasty. Asian patients are among the few who request a more prominent nasal bridge. Along with creating a stronger bridge, the tip of the nose is sometimes rotated upwards slightly and in some cases will be made more prominent as well.

The plastic surgeon will choose an appropriate implant in order to achieve the desired appearance. The implant will be used in conjunction with cartilage, which is harvested from another area of the body, to create a higher bridge that is balanced in angle and height to the tip. Both men and women can have highly successful outcomes if they maintain realistic expectations, choose a skilled specialist, and are an ideal candidate for the surgery.

Possible risks associated with rhinoplasty and placement of implants include, hemorrhaging, infection, breathing difficulties, dissatisfaction with results and extended bruising or swelling. The initial recovery period varies from two to three weeks, but it can take over a year before the swelling completely fades and the full results are visible.

Another commonly requested procedure popular among Asian patients is eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty. Many people of Asian descent lack an eyelid crease or “double eyelid”. This crease, which appears between the upper lash line and eyebrow, can make the eyes appear bigger and more dramatic. Many women find that the crease enables easier application of makeup and appears to make the face look brighter.

During the procedure, a plastic surgeon will make an incision above the eye, manipulating the muscles and tissues to create the crease, and then stitching it into place. In most instances patients may choose the height and shape of the crease line, ranging from a high arch to a more subtle curve.

The recovery period is one to two weeks with visible bruising and tenderness. Initial results should be visible within four months, but full formation can take up to a year. There are few major health risks, but aesthetic problems such as eyelid drooping, unevenly matched creases, visible scarring, and triple creases can occur in some cases.

Choosing cosmetic surgery will not change your heritage or individuality, but rather enhance the beauty you already possess. Many people of Asian descent have found that specialized plastic surgeons can help them achieve their aesthetic goals without compromising their uniqueness.

A number of plastic surgeons are familiar with particular procedures and patients. They are sensitive to individual desires and expectations as well as cultural differences. Realistic goals and an understanding of the various procedures can help you make an informed, thoughtful decision. If you still have concerns, consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options.

For a person of Asian descent, maintaining your individuality is as essential as finding a competent

Cleveland, Ohio clinic performs US’s first face transplant

Cleveland, Ohio clinic performs US’s first face transplant

By 5Mu3Ji

Thursday, December 18, 2008

A team of eight transplant surgeons in Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, USA, led by reconstructive surgeon Dr. Maria Siemionow, age 58, have successfully performed the first almost total face transplant in the US, and the fourth globally, on a woman so horribly disfigured due to trauma, that cost her an eye. Two weeks ago Dr. Siemionow, in a 23-hour marathon surgery, replaced 80 percent of her face, by transplanting or grafting bone, nerve, blood vessels, muscles and skin harvested from a female donor’s cadaver.

The Clinic surgeons, in Wednesday’s news conference, described the details of the transplant but upon request, the team did not publish her name, age and cause of injury nor the donor’s identity. The patient’s family desired the reason for her transplant to remain confidential. The Los Angeles Times reported that the patient “had no upper jaw, nose, cheeks or lower eyelids and was unable to eat, talk, smile, smell or breathe on her own.” The clinic’s dermatology and plastic surgery chair, Francis Papay, described the nine hours phase of the procedure: “We transferred the skin, all the facial muscles in the upper face and mid-face, the upper lip, all of the nose, most of the sinuses around the nose, the upper jaw including the teeth, the facial nerve.” Thereafter, another team spent three hours sewing the woman’s blood vessels to that of the donor’s face to restore blood circulation, making the graft a success.

The New York Times reported that “three partial face transplants have been performed since 2005, two in France and one in China, all using facial tissue from a dead donor with permission from their families.” “Only the forehead, upper eyelids, lower lip, lower teeth and jaw are hers, the rest of her face comes from a cadaver; she could not eat on her own or breathe without a hole in her windpipe. About 77 square inches of tissue were transplanted from the donor,” it further described the details of the medical marvel. The patient, however, must take lifetime immunosuppressive drugs, also called antirejection drugs, which do not guarantee success. The transplant team said that in case of failure, it would replace the part with a skin graft taken from her own body.

Dr. Bohdan Pomahac, a Brigham and Women’s Hospital surgeon praised the recent medical development. “There are patients who can benefit tremendously from this. It’s great that it happened,” he said.

Leading bioethicist Arthur Caplan of the University of Pennsylvania withheld judgment on the Cleveland transplant amid grave concerns on the post-operation results. “The biggest ethical problem is dealing with failure — if your face rejects. It would be a living hell. If your face is falling off and you can’t eat and you can’t breathe and you’re suffering in a terrible manner that can’t be reversed, you need to put on the table assistance in dying. There are patients who can benefit tremendously from this. It’s great that it happened,” he said.

Dr Alex Clarke, of the Royal Free Hospital had praised the Clinic for its contribution to medicine. “It is a real step forward for people who have severe disfigurement and this operation has been done by a team who have really prepared and worked towards this for a number of years. These transplants have proven that the technical difficulties can be overcome and psychologically the patients are doing well. They have all have reacted positively and have begun to do things they were not able to before. All the things people thought were barriers to this kind of operations have been overcome,” she said.

The first partial face transplant surgery on a living human was performed on Isabelle Dinoire on November 27 2005, when she was 38, by Professor Bernard Devauchelle, assisted by Professor Jean-Michel Dubernard in Amiens, France. Her Labrador dog mauled her in May 2005. A triangle of face tissue including the nose and mouth was taken from a brain-dead female donor and grafted onto the patient. Scientists elsewhere have performed scalp and ear transplants. However, the claim is the first for a mouth and nose transplant. Experts say the mouth and nose are the most difficult parts of the face to transplant.

In 2004, the same Cleveland Clinic, became the first institution to approve this surgery and test it on cadavers. In October 2006, surgeon Peter Butler at London‘s Royal Free Hospital in the UK was given permission by the NHS ethics board to carry out a full face transplant. His team will select four adult patients (children cannot be selected due to concerns over consent), with operations being carried out at six month intervals. In March 2008, the treatment of 30-year-old neurofibromatosis victim Pascal Coler of France ended after having received what his doctors call the worlds first successful full face transplant.

Ethical concerns, psychological impact, problems relating to immunosuppression and consequences of technical failure have prevented teams from performing face transplant operations in the past, even though it has been technically possible to carry out such procedures for years.

Mr Iain Hutchison, of Barts and the London Hospital, warned of several problems with face transplants, such as blood vessels in the donated tissue clotting and immunosuppressants failing or increasing the patient’s risk of cancer. He also pointed out ethical issues with the fact that the procedure requires a “beating heart donor”. The transplant is carried out while the donor is brain dead, but still alive by use of a ventilator.

According to Stephen Wigmore, chair of British Transplantation Society’s ethics committee, it is unknown to what extent facial expressions will function in the long term. He said that it is not certain whether a patient could be left worse off in the case of a face transplant failing.

Mr Michael Earley, a member of the Royal College of Surgeon‘s facial transplantation working party, commented that if successful, the transplant would be “a major breakthrough in facial reconstruction” and “a major step forward for the facially disfigured.”

In Wednesday’s conference, Siemionow said “we know that there are so many patients there in their homes where they are hiding from society because they are afraid to walk to the grocery stores, they are afraid to go the the street.” “Our patient was called names and was humiliated. We very much hope that for this very special group of patients there is a hope that someday they will be able to go comfortably from their houses and enjoy the things we take for granted,” she added.

In response to the medical breakthrough, a British medical group led by Royal Free Hospital’s lead surgeon Dr Peter Butler, said they will finish the world’s first full face transplant within a year. “We hope to make an announcement about a full-face operation in the next 12 months. This latest operation shows how facial transplantation can help a particular group of the most severely facially injured people. These are people who would otherwise live a terrible twilight life, shut away from public gaze,” he said.

Lovely earrings, cute rings, and pretty women bracelets are just some of the accessories used by women to make their look classier and edgier. These jewelries are supposed to make women more beautiful. However, there are some bracelets that are made not only to make the user prettier but healthier as well. These particular bracelets are called magnetic bracelets. As what it is called, these bracelets are made in magnets that are said to heal different illnesses in the body if worn regularly.

Usage of magnets to reduce pain in the body is said to originate way back ancient civilizations. It has been reported that this type of medical treatment was written in old calligraphies and was practiced by old nations and cultures. However, it gained its modern recognition around 1800s. This treatment involves using a magnet close to the skin or to the body to improve the over-all health of the user. This particular treatment is termed as Magnetic Therapy, which uses strong magnets that have a measurement of 200 to 10,000 gauss. People who undergo Magnet Therapy use magnetic devices that they can wear all day such as women bracelets, metal rings or body wraps to heal their sicknesses.

People who undergo magnetic therapy claim to have a better feeling after prolonged wearing of magnetic bracelets. It has been said that magnetic bracelets improved their health because these particular bracelets minimize the body pains caused by general illnesses. Magnetic bracelets claim to treat severe foot ache, back pains, body injuries, post-surgical pains, headaches, and migraines. It also claims to decrease the pain caused by menstrual periods, diabetes, urinary tract infection, Parkinson’s disease and others.

Magnetic therapy started with the idea that a human’s body is composed of electromagnetic field. Thus, when a person wears a magnet close to his or her body, it can trigger transmission throughout the body system. This transmission has positive effect to the body, making the human body system function properly and efficiently. One report says that magnetic therapy has positive effect specifically in the nervous system. The effect is caused by the magnetic activity within the muscles and tissues of the nervous system, triggered by the magnetic device. This regulates the blood flow within the body, thus, making the person feel better and healthier.

Because of the healthy benefits of the magnetic therapy, productions of magnetic devices have expanded ever since it was discovered. Others use Magnetic Therapy as an alternative medicine to serious medical surgery and health conditions. Market has grown worldwide and magnetic woman bracelets, metal rings, and magnetic body wraps improved all throughout the years. It has been known in countries like Japan, Australia, India, and China. This therapy is also gaining popularity in modern European countries like Holland, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany and United States. One of the attributes of magnetic bracelet is its durability. It has been said that these bracelets can stand harsh conditions such as bad weather and rigorous activities. Because of its durability, these bracelets don’t just wear off and can last for a very long time.

NASCAR: Kurt Busch wins 2011 Budweiser Shootout

By 5Mu3Ji

Sunday, February 13, 2011 File:KurtBuschPole.jpg

Penske Racing driver Kurt Busch won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series 2011 Budweiser Shootout held yesterday at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. This became his first win of the season, and his first at Daytona International Speedway. Throughout the course of the race there were four cautions and 28 lead changes among ten different drivers.

On the final lap, Denny Hamlin moved aside Ryan Newman, while doing so he moved below the double yellow line (out of bounds), which gave the victory to Busch while he settled for twelfth. Jamie McMurray, who helped Busch win the race by the draft, finished second. Newman finished third ahead of Jimmie Johnson in the fourth position. Greg Biffle was scored fifth, Jeff Gordon finished sixth, while Kevin Harvick could only manage seventh.

Jeff Burton, Clint Bowyer, and Bobby Labonte rounded out the first ten positions. Also during the race, there was an accident that included seven drivers. Dale Earnhardt, Jr., who started on the pole position, discussed the wreck as “too many race cars going for the same real estate.” Another driver, Carl Edwards, said, “We were three or four-wide back there, and I was going between the 88 and the 78, and I don’t think the 78 knew I was in there.” Edwards continued, “He kept coming down, and I just had enough of my car in there. I laid up against the 88 and then the 78 got me in the right-front, but that’s just everybody trying to get the best position they can so we can go out there and race.”

Following the race, Busch commented, “I’ve got to thank my motor department – Jamie McMurray. “When you have a friend like that in this two-car draft, that’s what it takes.” Newman commented about the race by saying it was “the most unexpected race he has ever been a part of.”

Earthquake, tsunami combo caused devastation in Pichilemu, Chile

By 5Mu3Ji

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Pichilemu, Chile – Last Saturday, Chile was hit by a 8.8 earthquake. Many coastal towns were also hit by a tsunami, and Pichilemu was one of them. Its inhabitants were surprised by the giant waves that destroyed the most of the costanera and that reached the city square.

Pichilemu, that means in Mapudungun language small forest, is one of the most famous Chilean resort towns in the central zone of Chile. It is recurrently visited by surfers from all the world, because the Punta de Lobos beach is considered one of the best for surf practice worldwide.

Central Pichilemu was not severely damaged by the earthquake, but the tsunami caused significant destruction. The Fishermen Creek, located in front of the beach, was completely destroyed, and its machines are now unusable. Most of the Agustín Ross architecture that characterized the city, three of them being National Monuments of Chile, were damaged. The Agustín Ross Mirador, a famous location in front of the beach, located less than 200 meters from the Fisherman Creek, was completely destroyed. Its famous balustrades were washed away or thrown asunder. Many restaurants, kiosks and a circus were affected by the tsunami.

The rural parts of Pichilemu, like Ciruelos, Rodeillo and Espinillo feature houses constructed from adobe. Many were more than 100-years old, and were destroyed or are now uninhabitable.

The most powerful aftershock was produced almost 40 kilometers in front of the coast of Pichilemu, at the 03:10 local time (07:10 UTC) in March 2, with an intensity of 5.5 in the Richter scale, according to the USGS.

The Intendant of the O’Higgins Region, Juan Núñez, had a meeting with the Governor of the Cardenal Caro Province, Loreto Puebla, the Mayor of Pichilemu, Roberto Córdova, and naval and military authorities, juntas de vecinos representatives. They decided to leave the Carabineros police force to maintain the security of the city.

English Football: Manchester United News for August 6, 2008

By 5Mu3Ji

Wednesday, August 6, 2008

English football team Manchester United’s star striker, Wayne Rooney, will likely miss the opening match of the English Premier League, England’s top-level football league, on August 17, the BBC reported Tuesday.

The 22-year-old Rooney, who also plays for English National Team, contracted a mystery illness on United’s pre-season tour of Africa.

“I doubt Wayne will be fit for the start of the season,” United boss Sir Alex Ferguson told the BBC. “It’s a virus he picked up in Nigeria and it’s not a nice one. He’s not been back in training yet.”

The striker position, also known as forward in some countries, is the closest offensive position to the opponent’s goal and is more likely score goals than other position. Rooney played in 43 matches last season, scoring 18 goals with seven assists.

With absence of Rooney at striker, Argentine Carlos Tévez is the only fit veteran striker available for United. Portuguese striker Nani is suspended, while Anderson is playing for Brazil in the Olympics. Fraizer Campbell and Frenchman Louis Saha, both largely untested in the Premier League, remain two options, as does the signing of an outside player, such as, the BBC reports, Tottenham Hotspur’s striker Dimitar Berbatov.

Ferguson also said Tuesday that Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo will be staying at Manchester United, and not transferring to Real Madrid, as has been reported, both in the media and on blogs this summer.

“The matter is closed now,” Ferguson said Tuesday. “He is a Manchester United player — it’s finished. He’ll be playing here next season believe me. It’s finished.”

Whether or not Ronaldo does indeed stay at United, he will have to remain on the sidelines until an ankle injury heals. The BBC reports it will be September or later before Ronaldo is playing fit.

The winger position, a type of midfielder, is the middle position in relation to the opponent’s goal, behind strikers, but ahead of defenders. Wingers typically play toward the left and right sides of the pitch. Ronaldo score 42 goals in 48 appearances last season, the most of any United player.

United has two more friendlies this pre-season, facing Juventus and Portsmouth on August 6 and August 10. Manchester United, 2008 winners of both the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League, starts their season against Newcastle United.
