The first baby in the world created by an infectious woman, thanks to a cervical transplant by a deceased donor, was born in Brazil a year ago, The scientific magazine revealed "And Lancet". Seven months after the birth, the baby (girl), well, weighed 7.2 yards and still breastfeited by her mother, also in good health, according to the University Hospital of Sao Paulo, who performed the transplant in 2016
This is the first time, after a dozen unsuccessful attempts in the United States, the Czech Republic and Turkey, that a transplant of lethal donor herd allows birth. So far, "The only pregnancy that occurred after a transplant of uterus and eliminating post mortem was in 2011 in Turkey" and leads to suffering, according to Dr. Srdjan Saso, of the obstetric department at Imperial College, London.
From the first donation of a hive of a woman with a life, in 2013 in Sweden, 39 transplants were carried out, which allowed 11 to give birth to the patient. "The use of deceased donors could greatly increase access to this treatment" by "women suffering infertility from gutty origin," said the doctor. Dani Ejzenberg, who led the experience at the Sao Paulo University Hospital, quoted by And Lancet.
This successful experience presents "many benefits over a live donor's cervix: the potential number of donors is larger, it's cheaper and avoids the risks to living donor ". For Professor Andrew Shennan, an obstetrician at Kings College London, "the operation" opens the way to post-mortem, as the case for other organs, "would" allow women who can not get pregnant because Faulty cattle sustaining a pregnancy "without" depending on live donors "or" a destination to adopt or a mother ending ".
HAVE HOURS OF ACTION
The operation was carried out in September 2016. The womb was 32 years old and was born without this organ (Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser Syndrome) and before a transplant, are fertilized in vitro. The organ of a 45-year-old woman who died from a stroke and donor of several organs (heart, liver, kidneys), became a positive Rh factor.
The operation held a total of 10 and a half hours and immune treatment was followed to prevent the organ's refusal to be rejected by the organism. Seven later, with embryo transfer, pregnancy began, which developed a difficulty. The baby, from 2,555km, was born by a Caesarean section for 36 weeks of depression, on December 15, 2017, in a slightly premature condition but in perfect health. The gutter was removed during the Caesarean section to prevent the immune treatment, which was very difficult for the patient, and she and her baby were released three days later.
