Surgeons have apparently saved a young girl's hand in China – by grafting it on to her leg for three months. Ming Li, 9, lost her left hand when she was run over by a tractor on her way to school in July 2010. However it was too badly damaged to reattach immediately, so doctors decided to attach it to her right leg while it healed. After three months, a medical team at a hospital in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, transplanted it back on to her arm. Spokesman Dr Hou Jianxi said: "When she came in, her left hand was completely severed from her body. It was very scary. But Ming Li can now move her wrist again, and her left hand is a healthy pink color proving that the blood is circulating well." Ming Li will need two more operations over the next year to improve her hand functions and remove scars.
