In a Medical Breakthrough World's first baby born using transplanted uterusThis can be called as a medical breakthrough that offers hope for millions of people unable to conceive. In Brazil, World’s first baby is born using transplanted uterus from the deceased donor.

Doctors termed this a quite an achievement in Medical science as it could help infertile women whose only options currently are surrogacy or adoption. The world’s first baby born using transplanted uterus via caesarean section at 35 weeks and three days weighed around 6lbs. The transplanted uterus was removed during the procedure and no anomalies were seen.

The recipient of the baby is a 32-year-old woman who was born without uterus due to a congenital condition. The uterus donor was a 45-year-old lady who died of a stroke. Although this was not the first time a uterus has been transplanted from dead donors but this is the first time to result in live birth.

Lead researcher Dr Dani Ejzenberg of the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil said, “The use of deceased donors could greatly broaden access to this treatment…for women with uterine infertility.”

She further added, “The need for a live donor is a major limitation as donors are rare, typically being willing and eligible family members or close friends. The numbers of people willing to donate organs upon their own deaths are far larger than those of live donors, offering a much wider potential donor population.”
