The ear has been created from a cartilage which was harvested from her ribs
Surgeons this week announced that the new ear has been successfully reattached to Pvt.
Burrage lost her ear in 2016 at the age of 19 when a tire on the auto she was driving from MS to Fort Bliss, Texas, suddenly blew out, causing the vehicle to flip several times before she was ejected from it. While her cousin managed to escape with only minor wounds, Burrage suffered head injuries as well as compression fractures in the spine.
She could be fitted with a plastic prosthetic ear or she could have one reconstructed.
Doctors harvested cartilage from the ribs of Shamika Burrage, who lost her left ear in a vehicle accident two years ago. Johns Hopkins Hospital also used a similar procedure for a cancer patient who lost her ear, ABC News reports, and earlier this year, doctors in China used a combination of 3-D printing and cartilage harvesting to grow new ears for five children with a birth defect called microtia, CNN reports.
Now thanks to a revolutionary process that was more than a year in the making and a first for the Army, she doesn't have to.
Burrage has two surgeries left before the reconstruction of her new ear is complete.
"It's been a long process for everything, but I'm back", she said. The passenger, Burrage's cousin who was eight months pregnant at the time, was not injured. The new ear grew under the skin of her arm - even developing blood vessels. While she was initially scared about going through with the reconstruction, she said she wanted to see what doctors could do. The auto skidded 700 feet and flipped several times, according to the Army press release.
