Spanish Surgeon Performs First Synthetic Organ Transplant 91

Bob the Super Hamste writes "The BBC is reporting that surgeons in Sweden have transplanted a synthetic windpipe into a patient. The synthetic windpipe was grown from a scaffolding and coated with the patients own stem cells. The scaffolding was made using 3D images of the patient's own windpipe. The new windpipe was made by scientists in London."

    Well, I realize you're a bit older, but I, for one, always have my critical organ on standby.
