 The Seattle Times: Nation & World: Mesh cage in shoulder blade used to grow new jaw bone
LONDON — A German whose lower jaw was cut out because of cancer has enjoyed his first meal in nine years — a bratwurst sandwich — after surgeons grew a new jaw bone in his back muscle and transplanted it to his mouth in what experts call an "ambitious" experiment.
According to this week's issue of The Lancet medical journal, the German doctors used a mesh cage, a growth chemical and the patient's bone marrow, containing stem cells, to create a new jaw bone that fit exactly into the gap left by the cancer surgery.
Tests have not been done to verify whether the bone was created by the blank-slate stem cells, and it is too early to determine whether the jaw will function normally in the long term.
