    Worlds First Transplanted Penis Is Removed

    An accident victim has become the first person to have a penis transplant.
    The 44-year-old man was given the 4in organ from a braindead patient half his age in a complex 15 hour operation.
    But the organ had to be removed just 14 days later due to "a severe psychological problem with the recipient and his wife".
    Transplant expert Professor Andrew George, from Imperial College London, said it was unclear if the man would have been able to perform sexually with the donated penis.
    "Doing a penis transplant should be no more complex than anything else," he said. "But it takes time for nerve sensations to kick in."
    Top French surgeon Dr Jean-Michel Dubernard, who performed the world's first face transplant on a woman who had been attacked by a dog this year, said psychological consequences were a serious issue for many patients.
    "Psychological consequences of hand and face allografts show that it is not so easy to see permanently a dead person's hands, nor is it easy to look in a mirror to see a dead person's face," he wrote in the journal.
    "Clearly, in the Chinese case the failure at a very early stage was first psychological. It involved the recipient's wife and raised many questions."
    During the operation, carried out by surgeons in China, nerve fibres and tiny blood vessels were stitched to the donated penis.
    It also had to be connected to the urethra - the tube that empties the bladder.
    The patient was then given drugs to stop his immune system rejecting the new penis.
    Surgical teams claimed the operation was a sucess. Tests showed it had a rich blood supply and after just ten days, the man was able to urinate through it without the use of a catheter, according to a report in the European Journal of Urology.
    The proceedure is regarded as a major step forward in transplant surgery and brings new hope to men whose sex organs are damaged beyond repair in accidents or birth defects.
    Earlier this year, French surgeons transplanted a dead woman's face on to a dog-attack victim.
    Two years ago an Austrian team transplanted a human tongue into a patient with jaw cancer. Doctors have reattached male organs before, but this is the first time they have completed a penis transplant.

    And its not like he could exchange it for a bigger one either!

    Everything in this world is meant to fail. If people actually made a car that never failed then you would have to worry about fixing it but the car mechanics would be out of a job...

    Just like removing someones penis and giving it to some one else...well, i think that is just wrong... I mean think about it, you are having sex with your wife but in the same time your wife is also cheating on you with another mans penis.....just wrong man.

    Mmkay. I'll start with wondering if the couple would have had severe psychological problems if it had been any other organ?

    And how would you approach the family of a brain dead patient and ask to harvest the penis?

    Something that I thought of when they did the face transplant....how can anyone be prepared or know how to deal with the psychological effects of seeing (on themselves) an organ that once belonged to someone else?

    And what kind of accident did the patient have that resulted in the loss of his penis that was so damaging that it couldn't be reattached?

    You forgot one, Buttercup! Who else has had that penis? And what did they do with it when they had it? Where has it been? If... this is too much.

    I thought the first one was a partial success? Apparently they transplanted the end of an elephants trunk on to a man who had lost his penis during a chainsaw accident. It worked almost faultlessly, except when passing cake shops. It kept shoving buns up his arse.

    That's right, CB2! And did they remove it from all the way inside the body, or did they just lop off what they needed? It boggles the mind.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Trojan 42 again.
