Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences conducted Asia’s First Double Above-The-Elbow Hand Transplant on a 19 year old girl, Shreya Siddanagowda. “There was a lot of complexity involved. In such operations, we have to accurately identify and connect various nerves, muscles, tendons, and arteries which is challenging. In Shreya’s case, both transplants were done in the middle of the upper arm. Only nine such transplants have been conducted in the world till now,” said Dr Subrahmania Iyer K., Head of Department of Head & Neck Surgery, Amrita School of Medicine.
