A new path breaking and innovative trial is going to be conducted by a group of specialist doctors in Ohio in the field of infertility and obstetrics with an objective to offer hope to women who are infertile due to uterine problems. They will perform uterus transplants on ten selected women who have gone through a rigorous screening protocol, who have uterine factor infertility (UFI). This intensive procedure, which combines specialists from reproductive medicine as well as reconstructive surgery, will be performed in the coming few months according to the New York Times. If the procedure is successful and all goes well, an approximate 50000 women can benefit from this procedure. There are many women who are still battling infertility problems in Germany and world over. Our expert team of gynecologists at Euromedic Healthcare has seen that uterine factor infertility stands as one of the leading untreatable causes for infertility amongst women.
Prerequisites and Procedure For The Trial
Crossing new frontiers in medical science, doctors hope to transplant a uterus from a deceased donor to a woman without one. A lady with ovaries, but no uterus can become pregnant as well have a delivery with this tentative and innovative procedure. The announcement of this clinical trial came after the first successful delivery was conducted in a donor uterus in Sweden. Though this uterus was transplanted from a live donor, Cleveland clinic has decided to use a uterus from a deceased donor in order to avoid unnecessary complications in healthy women.
Women that did not have a uterus right from birth or have some uterine infertility factor will be potential candidates. Prior to being elected for this trial they will undergo an intensive medical and psychological assessment. Each candidate’s ovaries will be stimulated to produce many eggs that will be artificially fertilized with the sperm and frozen. Donor uterus will be searched and selected with stringent consent procedures followed by uterus transplant which takes about 6-8 hours and an entire year to heal fully. Post this, the embryos will be thawed and implanted into the donor uterus until the woman becomes pregnant.
