Abstract.

On July 21, Laura Nataf explodes with joy.

After four years of legal battle, Health Insurance was ordered in the first instance to reimburse part of its hand and forearm transplant operation, carried out in the United States in 2016.

Victim of septic shock in 2007, Laura, 19, has both feet, hands and forearms amputated.

After a few years, she wanted to have her arms transplanted to gain autonomy.

Struck off the transplant waiting list in 2016 for lack of donors, she turned to a Philadelphia hospital, which agreed to carry out this rare and expensive operation, and to advance the costs which amounted to nearly 1 million dollars. dollars.

The intervention is a success.

But for years, the young woman has to fight to obtain a contribution from France.

Laura confided in our reporter Ambre Rosala.
