The first birth as a result of a womb transplant in the United States has occurred in Texas, a milestone for the united states but one achieved in the past in Sweden.
A woman who was simply born without a uterus gave birth to the infant at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas.
Hospital spokesman Craig Civale confirmed Friday that the birth had occurred, but said no additional details can be found. The hospital didn’t identify the woman, citing her privacy.
Baylor has had a report underway for quite some time to enrol up to 10 women for uterus transplants.
In October 2016, the hospital said 4 women had received transplants but that 3 of the wombs had to be taken out due to poor blood flow.
The hospital would give no additional information on how many transplants have been performed since that time. But Time magazine, which first reported the united states baby’s birth, says 8 have been done at all, and that another woman is currently pregnant as a result.
A news conference was scheduled Monday to go over the Dallas baby’s birth.
A doctor in Sweden, Mats Brannstrom, is the 1st in the world to deliver a baby as a result of a uterus transplant. As of last year, he previously delivered 5 infants from women with donated wombs.
There were at least 16 uterus transplants worldwide, including one in Cleveland from a deceased donor that needed to be removed due to complications.
Last month, Penn Medicine in Philadelphia declared that it also would start offering womb transplants.
Conversely, the findings suggested that marijuana is highly recommended part of the prevention schemes targeted at minimising the chance of young people developing bipolar disorders.
It is because cannabis use was found to mediate the association of both childhood sexual abuse and hypomania, and male gender and hypomania. “As such it might be a useful target for indicated prevention of hypomania,” Marwaha added.
