NEW BEGINNING

Brendan Marrocco, US quadruple amputee, gets new arms

The first US soldier to survive losing four limbs in Iraq has said he is looking forward to swimming and driving after having a double arm transplant.

Brendan Marrocco, 26, was injured by a roadside bomb in 2009.

He also received bone marrow from the deceased donor of his arms, a therapy intended to help his body accept the new limbs with minimal medication.

His surgeon says it will take more than a year to know how fully Mr Marrocco will be able to use the new arms.

"The maximum speed is an inch a month for nerve regeneration," Dr W P Andrew Lee, who led the 13-hour surgery last month at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, told a news conference on Tuesday.

Four other soldiers have lost all four limbs and survived since Mr Marrocco.
