Following Landina's surgery on Wednesday 17 February Mr David Dunaway consultant paediatric plastic and craniofacial surgeon made the following statement:
"The Craniofacial team at Great Ormond Street Hospital were extremely happy with Landina's progress. The area of dead bone has been removed which reduces the likelihood of additional infection. A special vacuum dressing has been applied to support and will be looked at in the next few days. The wounds on her leg and arm were redressed and are healing well.
"There is no doubt that bringing Landina to this country was the only way for her to receive the complex care that she needs.
"The Facing the World team and surgeons and staff from both Great Ormond Street Hospital and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust will look after her until her wounds heal."
