The purpose of this study is to see if an investigational surgery that transfers tissue from a non-living donor to living individual will help restore greater function, appearance, and sensation to the hand and forearm areas of individuals who have suffered traumatic injury to the hand and forearm.
This procedure is called a hand allotransplantation or "hand transplant".
This study will also collect data on how patients do during and after having a hand transplant from a nonliving donor. Recovery and outcomes will be observed through clinical exams, x-rays, blood and tissue tests, and other associated evaluations at all follow up visits.
