SZ Microsurgery Restores Israel
Youth's Fingers Severed on Job

JERUSALEM — Using a
newly developed surgical
technique and a special mi-
croscope which had been
donated to the hospital, sur-
geons at Jerusalem's Shaare
Zedek Hospital succeeded in
re-attaching three almost
entirely severed fingers to a
16-year-old boy's hand.
The new technique, called
microsurgery, originated in
Australia and makes use of
a special operating micro-
scope enabling the surgeon
to suture tendons, blood ves-
sels and nerves which are al-
most invisible to the naked
eye.
This particular case took
place only one week after
the hospital had acquired
the new microscope, making
it one of the few hospitals in
the world with the proper
equipment and trained per-
sonnel to carry out the oper-
ation. The patient, a victim
of an industrial accident,
was admitted with four fin-
gers on his left hand almost
entirely severed.

The staff of Shaare Ze-
dek's plastic and maxillo-
facial department, headed
by Prof. Nahum Ben-Hur,
managed to stitch together
all the blood vessels,
thereby restoring circula-
tion and in a sense bring-
ing the fingers "back to
life."

In order to learn more
about this technique, Prof.
Ben-Hur had a member of
his staff sent to Australia to
study its progress first-
hand and to learn more

U.S. Arabs Meet
Ford in PLO Issue

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
A delegation of 11 leaders of
the National Association of
Arab-Americans visited
with President Gerald Ford
at the White House last
week with a request that he
recognize the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization.
The meeting, which lasted
about 20 minutes, marked
the first time that an Arab-
American group has been at
the White House since the
Six-Day War, according to
the visitors.
The request for recogni-

Palestinian people and a
condemnation of Israel for
attacks on terrorist bases in
Lebanon were contained in
a statement given to the
President.
