Brazil: For the first time a baby is born of the uterus from a dead donor

Ten pregnant women in a womb of a deceased donor was tried in 10 other times, but they were not achieved or they remained in a miscarriage.

In the case of living donners, the success rate is higher. Up to 11 babies are born in the world thanks to a transplanted uterus. Sometimes the menager was the first mother.

Everything happened in São Paulo, Brazil, between 2016 and 2017. The mother of the girl, 32 years old, was born without a dose and received the uterus of a woman of about 40 who was a mother three times and who died cause Of stroke.

The discovery of the Mayor-Rokitanski-Kister-Hauser Syndrome, which affects approximately one out of 4,500 women worldwide, and which does not have the vagina, not the uterus, and the women to form properly.

But his ovaries are in perfect condition, so doctors can extract the eggs and freeze them with the sperm of the future father. Therefore they are frozen.

At the time of transplantation, the future mother had to take medications that weaken her immune system. In this way, he tried to prevent his body from rejecting the new uterus.

About six months after the transplant, the woman began to have the time again. Soon, they inserted the fertilized ovules and became pregnant.

The pregnancy was a success and progressed normally. Nine months later, on December 15, 2015, a girl weighing 2.5 kilos was born by Cesarean section.

"The former transplants of uterus from lively donners are a medical milestone and given the possibility that infertile women may have a birth thanks to access to the appropriate donners and the necessary medical facilities," said Dr. Danny Ejsenberg, Hospital Clinic, in São Paulo.

But he acknowledged that donors of a uterine uterus are rare and usually family or friends close to the recipient, so the success of a pregnancy in an uterus of a dead donor is important.

Dr. SARDEN SASO, of Imperial College London, said that the results are encouraging.
