For the first time, a baby has been born to a woman who received a uterus transplanting from a deceased sponsor, is in accordance with Hospital das Clinicas at the University of Sao Paulo School of Medicine in Brazil.
The uterus or womb, which is mold like a topsy-turvy pear and sits within the pelvis, is a female sex organ that houses and nourishes the fetus until delivery. At least a dozen children placed in Sweden, the United States and Serbia have been born to women with displaced uteri donated by a living relative , mentioned the authors of the study, which was published Tuesday in the medical publication The Lancet.
” The solutions provide proof-of-concept for a brand-new care option for ultimate uterine factor infertility ,” wrote co-authors Dr. Dani Ejzenberg, an ob/ gyn at the University of Sao Paulo and Hospital das Clinicas in Brazil, and Dr. Wellington Andraus, organ transplants surgeon at the Sao Paulo University School of Medicine in the results of the study. Less than 5 % of the status of women worldwide have some type of” absolute uterine factor infertility ,” in which an irregularity of the womb encroaches with fetal growth .
The Brazilian team followed etiquettes established by Dr. Mats Brannstrom and his unit at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden, where the first successful uterus implant, that one from a living donor, was accomplished in 2013. That recipient father handed birth in 2014.
