Human Head Transplant! It is something that seemed impossible a few years ago. But not anymore. Human Head Transplant project has achieved success now.
Where and How did this head transplant occur?
This epic event took place in an operation theatre in China. The operation was carried out by a team at Harbin Medical University. This team was headed by Dr. Xiaoping Ren which comprised of 18 expert surgeons.
Use of a corpse
The experiment was performed on a corpse. This finally exposed the possibilities of successfully reconnecting the spine, nerves and blood vessels. This has certainly risen the bar for explorations in the field of surgery.
Human Head Transplant didn’t happen just like that. Many operations were previously performed on monkeys and mice. Last year, Dr. Xiaoping Ren successful did a head swap on a monkey. This is not it. He has performed over 1000 head transplants on mice.
To be coming soon
The most epic accomplishment of human history came to light when Italian Professor Sergio Canavero announced the team’s success. He also mentioned that a similar operation on a living breathing human being is due shortly. Stay tuned for more.
A speed breaker
Dr. Sergio Canavero was planning on performing the world’s first human had transplant on a living subject, Russian Valery Spiridonov. But failed because of Spiridonov sufferer from a muscle wasting disease. He declared that he would be unable to be a part of this experiment. A little speed breaker. But don’t worry, the path of success has many speed breakers.
This is a breakthrough in the medical field. Think of all the doors of possibilities that this success has opened for us. The world is progressing towards a greater tomorrow.
