World's first double arm transplant

This is some remarkable medicine. An unnamed German man has made medical history by being the first person to receive an arm transplant - both arms actually.

Transplant is probably not the correct term, and that implies his original arms were swapped for the new ones, which isn't the case. He had lost his arms 6 years earlier in a farming accident.

The arms came from a teenage boy who was declared brain dead after a car accident.

Damn that is cool. I wonder if he was given the option of black or white.
