A method of heterotopic uterine transplantation was developed in the mouse as a model system for studies of uterine function and transplant immunology of the uterus. The model involved transplantation of the right uterine horn and the cervix by vascular anastomosis to a donor animal with the intact native uterus remaining in situ. F1-hybrids of inbred C57BL/6 x CBA/ca (B6 CBAF1) mice of 6-8 weeks of age (n=42) were used. The specific pelvic vascular anatomy of these mice was first examined by… CONTINUE READING
