A year ago, the scientific journal, The Lancet, said on Wednesday.
Seven months after the birth, the baby was fine, weighed 7.2 yards and still breastfeited by her mother, also in good health, according to the Hospital of Sao Paulo University, 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.
It is also first about birth through a gross transplant in Latin America.
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 only pregnancy that occurred after post-mortem gut transplant in 2011 was in Turkey and had led to an abortion," explained Dr. Srdjan Saso, of the obstetric department at Imperial College London.
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 ".
More than ten hours of operation
The operation was carried out in September 2016. The womb was 32 years old and was born without this organ, a condition known as Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome. Before the transplant, it was vitro fertilized (IVF).
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 hours and a half, and immune treatment was followed to prevent the organ's refusal to be rejected by the organism.
Five months after the transplant, the woman had the first normal rules. Two months later, with the transmission of embryo, the pregnancy began.
This was developed without difficulties and the baby was born by the Caesarean for 36 weeks after them, on December 15, 2017, in a little premature but considered to be appropriate for doctors to avoid complications.
The baby weighed 2,550 kilometers and it was in perfect health. The gutter was removed during the caesarean section to prevent the immune treatment, very hard for the patient. He left the boy and the mother of the hospital after three days.
The study's authors emphasize that the gut post mortem transplant can open new possibilities, as many countries already regulate this kind of donation.
