First Double-Arm Transplant in Latin America - 28 Nov 2013
Images from Mexico of a double-arm transplant patient, Gabriel Granados. Two years after losing his arms to severe burns, the 53-year-old Mexican man is enjoying a new lease on life thanks to a rare double-arm transplant. Granados arms were amputated just below the elbow after receiving a severe electrical shock. But in May 2012, nearly 20 medics, including five plastic surgeons, five nurses and three anaesthesiologists, performed a marathon 17-hour operation to attach two arms donated by a shooting victim.
The operation was the first of its kind in Latin America with Granados having recovered the majority of movement in his arm from
the operation following an extensive course of rehabilitation.
