Taipei, July 16 (CNA) Taiwanese doctors have successfully operated on a Myanmar girl
suffering from extensive hemangioimas of the tongue who had been turned down by nine hospitals in three countries before coming to Taiwan.
Doctors and Pu Shuang-ting’s (濮雙婷) family gave a press conference at Taipei’s Tri-Service General Hospital Thursday to report on the girl’s gradual return to normal life after two months’ treatment here.
Dr. Lee Hsiao-ping said the medical team first shrank the five-year-old’s vascular tumor from 10 cm to 8 cm before removing it. [FULL STORY]
