Doctors in China managed to save a man’s partially severed finger by attaching it to his stomach. 20 year-old Wang Yongjun, a furniture worker, cut off the end of his middle finger with an electric saw in an accident at work. Wang was rushed to hospital where doctors had to think fast if they wanted to save the finger. Dr Huang Xuesong said the muscle and skin had been cut away from the end of his finger leaving only the bone showing. “We had to make a quick decision or he could have lost his finger. We decided to cultivate a new fingertip on his stomach,” he said. Doctors operated and attached Wang’s finger to his stomach in the hope that new skin and muscle would grow around it.
