Lightbulb Dawn of the TransPlant

Imogen from Shakespeare's Cymbeline..
Tomczeszyn; undergoing a head transplant..
Co-ordinating the transplants and planning the surgeries took more than two years.. More than 50 healthcare professionals were involved including microsurgeons, neurosurgeons and reconstructive surgeons, said the MD...A man whose cancer left him with severe damage to the top of the head has received what his doctors in Texas have described as the first skull and scalp transplant..James Boysen, a 55-year-old software developer from Austin, received the craniofacial tissue transplant at the same time as a kidney and pancreas transplant at Houston Methodist hospital on 22 May in surgeries that lasted nearly a day..

In 1959, China announced they had succeeded in transplanting the head of one dog to the body of another twice..In 2002, other head transplants were also conducted in Japan in rats. Unlike the head transplants performed by Dr. White, however, these head transplants involved grafting one rat's head onto the body of another rat that kept its head.. Thus, the rat ended up with two heads..The scientists said that the key to successful head transplants was to use low temperatures..A possible candidate was found in June 2015, and Italian neurosurgeon Dr. Sergio Canavero, of Italy's Turin (Torino) Advanced Neuromodulation Group, has said the procedure (head anastomosis venture) might be feasible, with improved technology and more accurate ability to keep neural tissue perfused, by December of 2017, which is when he has proposed to perform the procedure, which would be done in either the United States or China..

The compound is being used by an east-European medical team that has been murdering people and stealing their organs for years.. The field where Father Joe had earlier discovered the bodies turned out to be their dumping ground.. Mulder enters the building to find that the team has been using the organs and body parts in an attempt to keep Tomczeszyn alive. At that moment, they attempt to place Tomczeszyn's head on the body of the second abducted woman. Mulder tries to save her from the gruesome fate, but a doctor comes from behind and injects him with a tranquilizer..In the Punisher comics, The Russian villain underwent a similar procedure...

Gummidge had a set of interchangeable turnip, mangelwurzel and swede heads, each of which suited a particular occasion or endowed him with a specific skill... can never be free, because they're weak, corrupt, worthless... and restless. The people believe in authority. They've grown tired of waiting for miracle or mystery.. Science is their religion - no greater explanation exists for them!. They must never believe any differently if the project is to go forward...
