Amputee given double hand transplant after five years on waiting list | ITV News

A quadruple amputee who has been waiting five years for a double hand transplant has successfully undergone the surgery.

Corinne Hutton, 47, from Renfrewshire in Scotland, lost her hands and feet in 2013 after suffering acute pneumonia and sepsis, which nearly killed her.

Surgeons at Leeds General Infirmary carried out the complicated 12-hour procedure on Ms Hutton earlier this week after more than a dozen false alarms over the years.
