A soldier lost her left ear in a auto accident, so Army doctors grew an ear in her arm as part of her reconstructive plastic surgery.
Surgeons at Johns Hopkins performed a similar surgery in 2012 after a woman lost part of her ear to an aggressive form of cancer.
The treatment is just one of one of the most challenging ear buildings in the United States, inning accordance with an ABC Report, as well as enables the development of new members vessels in the cartilage material.
Private Burrage, who underwent counseling to help her deal with the trauma and the accident's effects on her appearance, is now more optimistic even if she still has two surgeries left.
After the crash, Burrage stated she really did not really feel comfy with just how she looked and also existed with cosmetic surgery as a choice.
"(The ear) will have fresh arteries, fresh veins and even a fresh nerve so she'll be able to feel it", Johnson said on the U.S. Army's website. Burrage and her cousin, who was also in the vehicle, were ejected from the auto.
But the now-21-year-old is on the path to recovery.
In a first-of-its-kind procedure, army surgeons were able to reconstruct and grow a new ear for Pte Burrage on her forearm. Her cousin only had minor injuries, while Burrage had "head injuries, compression fractures in the spine, road rash and the total loss of her left ear". "We were driving and my front tire blew, which sent the auto off road and I hit the brake".
"As a young active-duty Soldier, they deserve the best reconstruction they can get", he said. Further, doctors also opened up her ear canal, as it had closed as a result of the trauma.
Dr. Johnson says, "I elevated a pocket of skin, preserving all of the things that were important, and placed the rib cartilage into the skin to let it heal". While she was initially scared about going through with the reconstruction, she said she wanted to see what doctors could do.
Although this was the first time this kind of ear reconstruction was attempted by an Army surgeon, the idea of growing ears is not new to science or medicine. However, the resounding success of Burrage's surgery means that USA army surgeons can now restore and recreate cartilaginous body parts for soldiers in service. More noticeably, however, she had completely lose her left ear. Nearly two years after her accident, plastic surgeons at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center have given the now 21-year-old a new ear that was grown from her own cartilage and tissue. This will enable her to having feeling in her ear once the rehabilitation process is complete.
