London – Brazilian doctors reporting the world's first baby brought to a woman with an uterus transplanted from a deceased donor.
Eleven previous births have used a transplanted wall but of a living donor, usually a relative or friend.
Experts said using uterus of women who have died could make more transplants possible. Ten of the previous attempts to use deceased donors in the Czech Republic, Turkey and the United States. It. Have different.
The baby girl was delivered last December by a woman born without an uterus because of a rare syndrome. The woman – a 32-year-old psychologist – was initially surprised by the transplant, said Dani Edgenberg, the lead doctor at the University of São Paulo School of Medicine.
"That was the most important thing in her life," he said. "Now she is coming to show us the baby and she is so happy,"
The woman is pregnant in vitro fertilization seven months after the transplant. The tenor was a 45-year-old woman who had three children and died of a swing.
The unknown, which has not been shown, has a Cesarean section. Doctors also removed the womb, partly so the woman would no longer have to take anti-rejection medicines. Nearly a year later, mother and baby are healthy.
Two more transplants are planned as part of the Brazilian study. Details of the first case appeared in Tuesday in the Medical Journal of Lancet.
Uphorus transplantation was pioneered by a Swedish doctor Matt Brannstrom, who had issued eight children of women who had women of family members or friends. Two babies have been born at Baylor University Medical Center University in Texas and one in Serbia, also from transplants of living donors.
In 2016, physicians in the Cleveland Clinic have translated an uterus from a malignant men, but it is still an infection developed.
"The Brazilian group has proven that using Dedz Donners is a viable option," said the clinic Dr. Tomatozo Falcone, which is involved in the OHIO case. "It can give us a larger organs supply than we think it is possible."
The Cleveland program is able to use lost donors. Falcon has the fact that the transplant was successful after the uterus was preserved in ice for nearly eight hours demonstrating how resilient the uterus is. Doctors try to keep the time an organ is without blood flow to a minimum.
Other experts say that the knowledge of such procedures can also solve some lingering mysteries about pregnancies.
"There are still lots of things we do not understand about pregnancy, like Embryos Implant," said Dr. Cesar Diaz, who co-authored an accompanying commentary in the journal. "The transplants will help us understand implantation and every stage Of pregnancy. "
