Spain performs full face transplant

Doctors in Barcleona undertake world's first full-face transplant.

    Spanish surgeons have announced that they have carried out the world's first full-face transplant.

    The hospital, in Barcelona, performed the surgery on a young man who lost his face in an accident five years ago.

    Since then, he'd been unable to swallow, speak or breathe properly.
