More than 50 surgeons participated in complex operations, which lasted 27 hours. The man's face was almost completely changed: there remained only the skull and muscular.
The most complicated operation was made 45-year-old Spaniard, who for many years suffered from arteriovenous malformations, tells the Daily Mail. In this disease the arterial blood is transferred specifically into the veins, ignoring the fabric and not delivering nutritional preparations to the internal organs. Most of the inhabitants of our planet with this diagnosis die.
With the development of the disease from the Spaniard strongly deformed face, he lost the ability to see and talk. The representative of the stronger sex has frequently turned to the doctors with the requirement to perform the surgery, but was refused in consequence of the uncertainty of the result. This time the doctor agreed. The operation took place in Barcelona's hospital Vall dБ√⌠Hebron running Joan Pere Barret. It lasted more than a day - about 27 hours. During this time, the operating visited fifty medical workers with different qualifications.
As a result, the face completely changed: untouched, leaving only the skull and muscular. In addition, the representative of the stronger sex has made the teeth. The patient whom the doctor transplanted face, talked with reporters. He admired the skill of health workers.
