Childs Windpipe Transplant
In this April 26, 2013 photo provided by OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Ill., Hannah Warren, 2, looks up as nurse Bethany McGfraw paints her fingernails in a post-op room at Children's Hospital of Illinois in Peoria. Hannah received a new windpipe in a landmark windpipe operation April 9, 2013. She was born in South Korea without a windpipe but received a new one made from her own stem cells. She is the youngest patient ever to get the experimental treatment. Doctors announced Tuesday, April 30, 2013, she is recovering and likely will lead a normal life.
