Study record managers: refer to the Data Element Definitions if submitting registration or results information. The investigators are now actively seeking candidates for the procedure. There are number of other factors that the investigators consider to determine who would be a suitable candidate.

Purpose: In an otherwise healthy patient with severe facial disfigurement secondary to burns, composite tissue allotransplantation CTA results in life-long immunosuppressive therapy and its associated risk. In this study, we assess the net gain of CTA of face in terms of utilities from the perspectives of patient, general public and medical expert, in comparison to the risks. The gain or loss in utility and quality adjusted life years QALY were estimated using face-to-face interviews. A sensitivity analysis using variable life expectancy was conducted.
