Hand, face transplants in France

The AP:

PARIS (AP) – Dozens of doctors working in teams over 30 hours performed the world’s first simultaneous partial-face and double-hand transplant during the weekend, Paris’ Public Hospital authority said Monday.

The authority described the recipient as a 30-year-old burn victim. The man, whose name was not released, was injured in a 2004 accident that left him with scars “preventing any social life,” it said.
