Italian neurosurgeon Sergio Canavero told reporters at a press conference in Vienna on Friday that he has completed the world's first transplant of a human head from one cadaver to another.

In 2015 Professor Canavero, former director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, announced that he meant to transplant the head of a paralysed man onto the body of a dead donor.

Canavero also said that the details of the surgery are likely to be released in a few days by a surgical journal. Everyone said it was impossible.

The paralyzed monkey was reportedly kept alive for less than a day.

The body rejected the new head and the monkey was left unable to breathe or move because the spinal cord of the head and body weren't properly connected.
