Submission + - Pig Tissue used in surgery (bbc.co.uk)

Noctis-Kaban writes: An interesting piece of local news for me that i thought i would share. There has been stuff about use of Pig tissue for years but I’ve not heard much of it being actively used all the time.

From the Article:
Mr Cawthorn said: "We have had very few complications and [the patients] are very pleased.

"It is now offered as a routine procedure as part of the treatment offered with the plastic surgeons here."

Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
