An anonymous reader writes "A ten year old girl became the first person in the world to get a major blood vessel replaced by one grown using her own stem cells.
The 10-year-old from Sweden had a blockage of a vein from her liver. The doctors decided to give her a new vein instead of a liver transplant or giving her a vein from her own body, Associated Press reported."
