The woman’s condition was so critical that doctors even suggested transferring her to a hospice for near-death care.
In the US, a 64-year-old woman has become the second person in the world to fully recover from end-stage, stage four lung cancer. He underwent a strange organ transplant operation. The Daily Mail reported this.
We are talking about Amelie Tannaz from Minnesota. The doctors say that he was lucky, because the oncology did not spread to other organs, except the lungs.
“This is a rare characteristic of stage IV lung cancer, which allows the transplant to completely eliminate the disease,” the doctors said.
Tannaz performed a double lung transplant, which consists in the fact that both lungs are removed from the recipient one at a time and replaced with donor lungs in one operation.
It is worth noting that the pensioner has never smoked, but at the end of 2021 he complained of a chronic cough, which turned into a terrible oncology that chemotherapy did not help him later.
At the hospital, he was even offered a transfer to a hospice for dying care.
“I begged my doctors in Minnesota to think about a lung transplant, but they wouldn’t,” he said.
He then turned to Northwestern Medicine in New Mexico, where they developed a new surgical technique to remove the cancer while minimizing the risk of it spreading.
“This innovative method involves complete bypass of the heart and lungs, the delicate simultaneous removal of both lungs affected by cancer along with the lymph nodes, washing out the airways and the chest cavity to remove the cancer, and then introduce new lungs,” says Bharat, the treating doctor. of the American woman.
