This is coolbert:

War! What is it good for? 

Developments in plastic surgery and transplant techniques?

Read the latest!

"scrotum - - n. - -  The external sac of skin enclosing the testes in most mammals."

"Injured veteran gets first complete penis and scrotum transplant"

"Patient's lower abdomen was completely reconstructed"

"A veteran badly injured by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan is recovering from the first-ever transplant of a penis and scrotum"

"The soldier lost both legs above the knee, his penis and the area around it when the IED — improvised explosive device — blasted him."

Scrotum transplant complete to include a new penis. Testicles not transplanted [undoubtedly a prosthesis will be provided for cosmetic purposes] as an unwanted issue with parenting might occur. Procedure evidently successful in entirety, doctors optimistic.

A first ever and done in a response to war injury of a very severe nature.

See this Internet web site [courtesy of the BBC] as devoted to war wounds and the plastic surgical techniques as applied to same. Very amazing stuff! Surgeons able to perform procedures almost miraculous in nature.
