First U.S Uterus Transplant Fails

Medic-ALL (03:09:2016)

The first attempt at a womb transplant in the United States has failed after a sudden complication forced its removal about 2 weeks after the initial surgical operation.



The recipient, the 26 year old Lindsey, is however recovering well according to reports.

The technique is a new frontier that would hopefully one day offer woman born without a uterus or who lost their uterus to disease a chance of getting pregnant.

The failed transplant was the first of 10 planned by the Cleveland Clinic in a clinic trial, and the hospital said the study is continuing.
