 Patient Receives Two Arms After Marathon Surgery
A 54-year-old farm worker has become the first man to receive the world's first successful double arm transplant.

The unnamed man lost his arms in a threshing machine accident six years ago and was given new arms from a dead donor in Bavaria.

The operation was performed by Professor Edgar Biemer and colleagues at the Isar Clinic in Munich.
