  1. Vulnerability and the Ethics of Facial Tissue Transplantation.Diane Perpich - 2010 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 7 (2):173-185.
    Two competing intuitions have dominated the debate over facial tissue transplantation. On one side are those who argue that relieving the suffering of those with severe facial disfigurement justifies the medical risks and possible loss of life associated with this experimental procedure. On the other are those who say that there is little evidence to show that such transplants would have longterm psychological benefits that couldn’t be achieved by other means and that without clear benefits, the risk is simply too (...)

    Transplantation continues to push the frontiers of medicine into domains that summon forth troublesome ethical questions. Looming on the frontier today is human facial transplantation. We develop criteria that, we maintain, must be satisfied in order to ethically undertake this as-yet-untried transplant procedure. We draw on the criteria advanced by Dr. Francis Moore in the late 1980s for introducing innovative procedures in transplant surgery. In addition to these we also insist that human face transplantation must meet all the ethical requirements (...)

  • Face Transplant: Real and Imagined Ethical Challenges.Tia Powell - 2006 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 34 (1):111-115.
    Ethical lapses associated with the first facial transplant included breaches of confidentiality, bending of research rules, and film deals.
