IRHCTT Registry

The International Registry on Hand and Composite Tissue Transplantation was founded in May 2002 with the primary purpose to collect information from each case of vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA), as it allows us to leverage our individual experience and learn from all centers involved.

CTA Mayo Clinic Update

CTA/VCA means simultaneous transplantation of skin, connective tissue, muscles, bones, nerves, vasculature, bone marrow and these multiple tissues are of ectodermal and mesodermal origin. At the same time these tissues are transplanted as a single functional unit from a deceased donor to a recipient, like a solid organ. Click the button below to download the powerpoint presentation.
