  • Description

    GREEK SURGEONS YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) CARRIED OUT A THIRD SUCCESSFUL EARDRUM TRANSPLANTATION AT THE SALONIKA UNIVERSITY CLINIC. THE EARDRUM WAS TRANSPLANTED FROM THE VICTIM OF A ROAD ACCIDENT TO 27-YEAR-OLD LABOURER KYRIACOS DEMETROU.

    EARLY THIS MONTH THE SURGEONS SUCCESSFULLY TRANSPLANTED EARDRUMS ON AN 18-MONTHS-OLD BABY AND A 27-YEAR-OLD CARPENTER. THE TEAM OF DOCTORS IS LED BY PROFESSOR GEORGE YIANNOULLIS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SALONIKA. BOTH THE OPERATING SURGEON, DR. MANOLIDES AND HIS AIDE, DR. DRACOULIS, WORKED UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF DR. YIANNOULLIS.

    THE DONOR OF THE EARDRUM USED IN YESTERDAY'S OPERATION DIED LAST TUESDAY, BUT THE VITAL COMPONENT WAS KEPT IN DEEP FREEZE UNTIL THE DOCTORS WERE PREPARED TO OPERATE.

    THE RECIPIENT OF THE EARDRUMS WAS QUITE DEAF BEFORE THE OPERATION, BUT IT IS NOW THOUGHT THAT HIS HEARING WILL BE NORMAL.
