Eva the dog was hit by a car and – in the past – would have required a leg amputation.
But due to a breakthrough method of creating bone, she runs and plays like she did before the accident.
With four legs.
Researchers in Scotland saved Eva’s legs with a new technique allowing bones to grow… in a laboratory! This bone-mending technique could potentially save limbs of soldiers and landmine victims.
The details are equally amazing: Eva’s new leg began with a putty of bone flakes and a bone-growth protein which was packed into the wound and the fracture healed within seven weeks.
