Ear on the Arm – level 2

Ear on the Arm – level 2

16-11-2016 15:00

A Chinese man lost an ear during a car accident, but doctors are trying to help him.

They took cartilage from his ribs and made the cartilage into an ear. They then put the ear under the skin of the man’s arm. It needs to grow there for at least three months. In the end, they will transplant it onto his head.

The patient has had many operations since the accident, not only for his ear, but also for his skin and cheeks. He hopes that the operations will bring him back a normal life.

Difficult words: cartilage (a flexible material of the body), ribs (the bones of the chest).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
