Isabelle Dinoire, the woman who, as the first partial face transplantation was performed, at the age of 49 died.

That happened already in april, but her death was Tuesday, only through the French media brought out by the hospital in Amiens, where she at the time was surgery.

Dinoire ran in 2005, serious injuries on the head because she was attacked by her labrador while she was asleep. Surgeons gave her a new nose, chin and mouth taken from a donor.

The surgery took fifteen hours. Although the result is a success should be called, suffered from the French for years with rejection.

Last winter she was sick as a reaction to a new skin grafting. Then were there also two malignant tumors found, possibly caused by the heavy medications that she had to swallow.
