Surgeons performed Turkey's first double arm transplant at the Akdeniz University Hospital in the southern province of Antalya.

The operation headed by Associate Professor Omer Ozkan, chairman of the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, was carried on a worker who lost both arms in a labor accident two years ago.

He has been given the arms of a 23-year-old man who died in a car crash in Milas town of the western province of Mugla.

The operation began on Saturday afternoon and lasted till Sunday morning.
