Military funding aids advances in face transplant surgery
"ONR along with the Army, Air Force and multiple government agencies continues to pool resources through the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine, which is researching and developing clinical therapies to heal and repair burn wounds as well as reconstruct and regenerate limbs," Given said.

"If you can imagine we could then transplant individual fingers. We could transplant small parts of the face. You could transplant any part of the body," he added. "If immune suppression is no longer an issue, there is no boundary. Friday on NBC.

of Maryland School of Medicine and Surgeon in Chief at the University of Maryland Medical Center. ET Friday on NBC have received full or partial face transplants, helping prepare top transplant surgeons to heal some of the estimated 200 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans whose physical appearances were mangled by bomb blasts in combat, according to doctors at two of the grant receiving hospitals. military money and muscle, said Dr. Bohdan Pomahac, of Boston Brigham and Women Hospital, who in 2011 performed the nation first full facial transplant on Dallas Wiens, a Texas man who got too close to a high voltage line while at work. That facility has received $3.4 million in military grants, according to a hospital press release.
procedure (on Norris) is the culmination of a $13 million research grant over seven years from the Office of Naval Research (to the University of Maryland), which I believe is one of the largest naval scientific investments for a surgical procedure," said Dr. Michael Given, the ONR Combat Casualty Care program officer.
"In the future, and what I hoping for, is to continually explore what happens in immunology between the donor and the recipient and how we can minimize immune suppression and whether in the future . the recipient will no longer reject the donor," Pomahac said.
The military involvement began in 2000 when Bartlett began talking with a Navy transplant surgeon about funding for programs to develop facial transplants for troops injured in blasts. Since then, the University of Maryland has been supported by grants from the Office of Naval Research, culminating on the successful face transplant performed by Bartlett hospital on Norris, wounded in a 1997 gun accident at his home.
"Without the military, there would be no composite tissue transplant, and that no exaggeration," Pomahac said. "They not only an integral part, they critical and probably the most important for progress in this field. They should get the credit for how far we moved it along and how far the technology has improved because without them we would still be hypothesizing whether it a good idea or not to do it."
"The military has been way ahead of the curve on supporting research for cranial facial transplantation," said Dr. Velvet Puma Creepers Release Date Stephen T. Bartlett, chair of the Department of Surgery at the University Puma Platform Reviews

"I don think we quite in the 10 dark years period of time but I think we in a similar stage where if we can figure out that one last step to either minimize or eliminate immune (system) suppression, the field of reconstructive surgery in general would be completely turned upside down," Pomahac said.
Although the military is essentially paying for the operations through those grants, the cost of a facial transplant in this country now averages $260,000 per patient, Pomahac said. Medication for those transplant patients costs about $10,000 a year.
For example, following the first successful kidney transplant in 1954, there were "10 dark years" until the next advance in that surgical technique because doctors didn have the proper immune suppression drugs at their disposal to ward off rejection, Pomahac said.
"It's even worse than I'd feared," Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Wednesday of the Ebola outbreak rampaging through West Africa. "Every day this outbreak goes on, it increases the risk for another export to another country.

After seven successful face transplants in this country, surgeons like Pomahac feel they now "developed a technique that is fairly routine (and) the operation is customizable to pretty much any facial defect."
