The right hand of a man that was transplanted onto his left arm, after he lost both hands in a subway accident.  His right arm was so badly damaged that it couldn’t be used, so doctors placed his right hand on his left forearm.  They then removed his thumb and repositioned it on the other side of his hand, so that his old index finger is now his little finger.  This was the fifth inverted hand transplant ever done.
