A woman aged 44 years old continuous pain in her left arm and shoulder. The doctors at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh in Scotland were unable to figure out the causative factor. Upon taking X-rays, they were astounded to find that the bones were disappearing. The woman was diagnosed with vanishing bone disease (Gorham-Stout disease).
Most of us have had a broken bone at some point in our lives and we can all agree that it is not a pleasant feeling. Our skeletal system, though not fragile, is susceptible to an occasional crack or a full-blown broken bone.
New bone tissue grown from patients' own stem cells that attach themselves to an implanted, rigid lightweight plastic "scaffolding" which gradually degrades and is replaced as new bone grows, could soon be healing shattered limbs, according to a new research report.
