A 97-year-old woman has got a 'mega'
prosthesis for an acute knee problem, a hospital in the Marche
coastal resort of Pesaro said Saturday.
The hospital said the operation to fit the artificial knee had been a complete success and the patient had been able to gradually return to normality.
"Thanks to the important progress within the framework of prosthetic surgery," explained Pesaro Urbino local health agency general manager Nadia Storti, "an operation of elevated complexity has been possible also on an elderly patient".
