Man’s Hand Sewn INSIDE His Stomach

A MAN whose hand was saved after it was sewed INSIDE his abdomen is now set to have pioneering surgery - the first of its kind in the world - to restore full use to his fingers. Former machine operator Carlos Mariotti, 43, from São Ludgero in southern Brazil, lost all the skin from his hand and fingers in a horrific workplace accident in March 2016. However, quick-thinking surgeons decided that rather than amputate, they could salvage the hand by surgically tucking it into a soft-tissue pouch in his belly - where it stayed for 42 days.
