Abstract

Patients who have lost a hand or upper extremity face many challenges in everyday life. For some patients, reconstructive hand transplantation represents a reasonable option for anatomic reconstruction, restoring prehensile function with sensation and allowing them to regain daily living independence. The first clinical case of bilateral hand transplantation at University Hospital Innsbruck was realized on March 17th, 2000. A decade later, a total of 7 hands and forearms were transplanted in 4 patients. This article review the clinical courses of 3 bilateral hand transplant recipients and highlights psychological aspects on reconstructive hand transplantation with special regard to unilateral/bilateral transplantation.
