Teen's toe attached to hand after juicer accident
But she is under observation for complications
After a 10-hour operation, doctors have managed to attach a 14-year-old teenager's toe to her right hand, which had been crushed by a sugarcane juicer.
However, Tan Li Xuan remains under observation after developing complications in her hand.
She was forced to undergo another four-hour operation one day after the original surgery, which took place last Thursday at Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
Her mother Mabel Ang, 44, told The Straits Times yesterday: "Doctors said there were some blood flow issues either because of a blood clot or the shrinking of a vein after the toe was attached."
