treatment within the first three months Dave's biopsy from last week showed a low grade rejection, which did not require treatment and cleared up on its own."

Ravindra also commented, "The success of the hand transplant program is totally due to the selfless donation by the donor families and the efforts of KODA. This is one reason why we have been the only site in the U.S. performing hand transplants."

The 18-member team that performed Armstrong's hand transplant included surgeons from Kleinert, Kutz and Associates, the University of Louisville and Jewish Hospital Hand Care Center, as well as a two-member team from Anesthesiology Associates and Medical Center Anesthetists. Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates, an organ procurement organization, coordinated the donation of the hands for all four U.S. hand transplant recipients. The group of surgeons performing the innovative procedure also performed the world's first successful hand transplant in 1999, the nation's second in 2001 and the nation's third in 2006. To date, there have been a total of 39 hands transplanted on 31 patients around the world.

The fourth U.S. hand transplant is sponsored by the Department of Defense, Office of Naval Research and Office of Army Research to further research in the composite tissue allotransplantation program.
