For the first time in history, a double arm transplant would be performed on an American. Katy Hayes, is lucky, or we might call, unlucky, to get this treatment.
None of her limbs is in working condition today. She was trapped by a deadly infection two years ago and since then, is living without her arms and legs. There is no sensation in her limbs.
It was few days after giving birth to her third child in 2010, when she developed Streptococcal. It is a deadly infection, which if spreads to other parts of the body can ruin one's life. Therefore doctors had to amputate her arms and legs so that the disease does not affect the rest body parts. Now she is all set to become the first American to undergo a double arm transplant.
Katy Hayes is just 43 years old and she has three young kids. She lives in Kingwood, Texas. This surgery would be performed at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.
As a procedure, the donated arms with the help of crews and metal plates will be attached to her elbows to join the bones, and then her muscles, arteries, tendons, veins and three major nerves of the arm would be connected.
