According to Swedish doctors, a major blood vessel of a 10-year-old girl has been replaced with one grown with her own stem cells. It was reported that this had to be done due to a poor blood flow between her intestines and liver.
A dead man’s vein was taken and then it was stripped of its own cells and then bathed in stem cells from the girl.
This led to a major improvement in the quality of the girl’s life, the surgeons said.
This development is the latest in the series of body parts grown, or engineered, to match the tissue of the patient.
