Villanova's Brian Westbrook, who last year became the first NCAA football player at any level to gain more than 1,000 yards rushing and receiving in the same season, will miss the entire 1999 season because of a knee injury, Wildcats coach Andy Talley said yesterday. Westbrook, a tailback and slot receiver, played for two seasons with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He underwent arthroscopic surgery for torn cartilage in the same knee in March after slipping on ice, but he has been frustrated by a slow rehabilitation process and a knee that keeps filling with fluid.

A year after a young amputee left the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania with transplanted hands and forearms, the lead surgeon calls her progress "nothing less than spectacular. " Yet Penn has no waiting list for hand transplants. The distinguished medical center is part of an ironic trend: Availability of the complex reconstructive surgery has been growing faster than demand for it. Of perhaps two dozen hand transplant programs worldwide, 10 are in the United States.

The Boston Bruins spent a million dollars last night. And it was worth it. Sergei Samsonov had his first career hat trick in a 4-1 victory over the visiting New York Islanders, helping the Bruins clinch a playoff spot and probably earning himself a $1 million bonus. "It's a relief to know that you're in the playoffs with five games left," said Samsonov, who essentially clinched the bonus with his 20th goal of the season. Wade Flaherty stopped 27 shots as the Islanders snapped a four-game winning streak and dropped to the verge of playoff elimination.

Devian Logan rolled up his pant leg to display the darkened scar on his left kneecap. Somewhere between 1 and 2 inches long, it looked more like a knee scrape than the remnant of a devastating injury that could have cost him his football career. "Not much, is it?" Logan said of the scar from the reconstructive surgery that repaired his torn medial collateral ligament. "It's kind of wide, but it's not much. Just one cut. " Just one cut - yet a permanent reminder for Logan of the October 1993 kickoff return during Villanova's game with William & Mary.

There was a flurry of Phillies medical news yesterday. Most significantly, the team still doesn't know how serious righthander Tyler Green's shoulder miseries are. It had been announced that Dr. Frank Jobe would perform exploratory arthroscopic surgery on the 1991 first-round draft choice Tuesday in Los Angeles. But, in a release issued yesterday, the Phillies said that Green had only been examined and quoted club physician Dr. Phillip Marone as saying the arthroscopic exam would take place next Tuesday.

No body part is off-limits anymore as some in beauty-crazed America chase a new look: sculpted genitals and bold J.Lo butts. These novel, and increasingly popular, cosmetic procedures will undoubtedly be talked about when the 5,000-member American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) arrives in Philadelphia today for its annual meeting. But the bigger buzz at the Pennsylvania Convention Center likely will revolve around three fast-growing, less titillating developments: Botox for younger patients looking to prevent creases later on. New wrinkle-filling injections that last longer.

For seven years, Eunice Wangare, 15, hid at home in rural Kenya, instead of going to school, for fear that someone might see her face. The constant distraction of turning heads, curious to see the giant tumor growing on the right side of Eunice's face, was too much for her to bear, said her Kenyan reconstructive surgeon, Meshach Onguti. But last Tuesday, Eunice stood tall and proud in front of nearly 50 students at the New Hanover Township School. The tumor had been removed on Nov. 3 during 12 hours of reconstructive surgery in Norfolk, Va., and she demonstrated her new lease on life with a smile.

Some call it the "icing on the cake. " Others deem it the "illusion of a protrusion. " But for Patricia Missiras, 57, of Brookhaven, having 3-D areolas and nipples tattooed to her reconstructed breasts goes much deeper. It's part of her quest to put her bilateral mastectomy, chemo, and radiation firmly in the rear-view mirror. "I want to look as normal as I did before," she says. "I know it's not going to look exactly the same, but I want to get back to where I was before all of this happened.

WASHINGTON - Superstorm Sandy will end up costing about $20 billion in property damages and $10 billion to $30 billion in lost business, according to IHS Global Insight, a forecasting firm. In the long run, the devastation the storm inflicted on New York City and other parts of the Northeast will barely nick the U.S. economy. That's the view of economists who say a slightly slower economy in coming weeks will likely be matched by reconstruction and repairs that will contribute to growth over time.

WASHINGTON - In the first tally of its kind, a federal investigative agency has calculated that at least 719 people, nearly half of them Americans, were killed working on projects to rebuild Iraq following the U.S. invasion in 2003. The toll represents an aspect of the Iraq war that is rarely brought to public attention, overshadowed by the much higher number killed in combat as well as the billions of taxpayer dollars squandered on reconstruction. There is no confirmed total number of Iraq war deaths.

My cousin Gail Katz could have told me how surgery and chemotherapy saved her life. Instead, she told me how breast reconstruction saved her soul. Gail was 42 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time. The tumor was small, a bit over one centimeter, and had not spread to her lymph nodes. But because she was relatively young, her doctor recommended chemotherapy and radiation after her lumpectomy. During the next several years, Gail's mother and maternal aunt were diagnosed with the same condition, which prompted Gail's visit to a genetics counselor and subsequent genetic testing.

The interior landscape of the Pennsylvania Avenue penthouse condominium belonging to physicians Alfred and Paula Stillman at the Philadelphian is not just a dramatic showplace. It's a warm, vibrant home, full of personality and interest. And Paula Stillman will explain that it's that warmth that led this couple to move from the suburbs to the city. Not that it was obvious from the start. "The first time we saw the space, mostly out of curiosity," Paula says, "it was actually quite depressing.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - A newly inaugurated President Michel Martelly promised to change the image of his disaster-prone nation Saturday while leading it into a new era of modernity - a country where education will be free and obligatory, he told Haitians, and change will not be compromised. "Hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder, we are going to change Haiti. We are going to remake this country. We are going to remake its face," Martelly said, speaking forcefully and in Creole from the transformed grounds of the broken National Palace.
