What happened to the woman, which was transplanted male hands?

In 2016, the 18-year-old Shreya, Sidangoli from India without hands below the elbow in a car accident. A year later, doctors were able to transplant her lost limbs from a black male donor who died during the incident on the eve of the accident. At this resonance the story might have ended if not for the changes that began to occur with the new girl's hands, reports . So, the skin on new limbs SREI began to lighten, and their similarities are much more slender than before.

After 2017 Shreya of Sidangoli underwent a 13-hour transplant of the owner, executed by a team of 20 surgeons and anaesthetists 16, the girl a year and a half was forced to attend support physical therapy that helped the patient to gain control over the transplanted hands. As soon as once belonging to another person hand and wrist gradually became their limbs Sidangoli began to mutate, gaining a more slender shape than it was before and during the transplant. After a while, there was another unexpected change: the skin on the hands, at one time belonged to the dark-skinned donor, it became much lighter in color. More matching the original skin tone of Sidangoli than 21-year-old young man, whose hands, by accident, became a real salvation for Indian girls, the transplanted limb SREI put scientists in a deadlock.

Doctors who treated Sidangoli, I suspect that the girl's body produces less melanin than the body of the donor, which may explain the lightness of her new limbs. Although to confirm this theory scientists more research is needed, experts believe that the organs of a donor over time, are able to adapt to the physiology of its new owner. However, in order for the transplanted hands and feet were alienated by the immunity of those who needed them a patient, doctors needed to consider several important criteria.

The Operation that was conducted at the transplant center Institute of Technology in Karnataka has become the first double operation of the hands, made in Asia. Specialists performed a difficult operation, believe that the emergence of more feminine forms can be explained adapting to a new host muscles.

This is called reinnervation — a process in which the muscles begin to function in accordance with the needs of the body — said Dr. Uday Khopkar, head of the Department of dermatology from king Edward hospital in Mumbai.

According to official statistics, to date less than 100 people around the world have received the possibility of transplantation of the hands lost due to accident or illness. Becoming one of those lucky enough to regain at least a partially working limb, Shreya of Sidangoli and her new hands help scientists make observations on the changes in the colors and shapes of donor grafts.
