Heterotopic uterine transplantation by vascular anastomosis in the mouse.

An undisturbed function of the transplanted uterus horn was finally demonstrated by its ability to implant inserted blastocysts and to carry pregnancy with fetal weight being similar to that of fetuses in the native uterus and controls.

Successful orthotopic uterine allotransplantation in a rabbit model using aorta and cava anastomoses: a short-term viability study

Aorta and cava anastomoses can be used to ensure a viable transplanted uterus by reconstructing an adequate blood supply to the transplanted uterine graft in a rabbit model and demonstrated the feasibility of tacrolimus monotherapy in suppressing the rejection of an allotransplanted uterus in a Rabbit model.

Uterus transplantation: an experimental study in the rat model

It can be concluded that early events of rejection in a uterus transplantation model is seen in all the examined compartments and the cervix may be an appropriate site for clinical diagnosis of early rejection.

Surgery and Ischemia in Uterus Transplantation. Studies in various experimental models.

It was found that the mouse, the rat and the sheep can serve as appropriate model animals for studies of various aspects of uterus transplantation and the uterus is fairly resistant to injuries induced by surgery and cold ischemia and can tolerate cold ischemic storage for at least 24 hours.

Uterus transplantation An experimental study in primates

Autologous and allogeneic UTx have been demonstrated in a nonhuman primate model proving to be a donor and recipient safe surgical procedure, regardless whether the graft is from a live or a deceased donor.

Transplantation of the uterus

Experimental uterus transplantation.

Much research on UTx has been performed in appropriate animal models and it is predicted that the research will soon reach a stage that could merit introduction of human UTx as an experimental procedure.

Transplantation of female genital organs

Transplantation surgery is also entering the field of gynecology and in the future several types of transplantations of organs/tissues of the female reproductive tract may become established clinical procedures.

Preliminary experience with solitary tubal transplants in women show that oviduct tissue transplanted in a vascularized manner is actively and virulently rejected, so immunologic rejection is the major obstacle preventing tubal transplantation.


Grafts of these tissues will allow the fine detail of the processes of rejection to be studied continuously in vivo and provide a unique opportunity for a close comparative study of mammalian fetal and adult glomerular blood flow under varying rates of perfusion.
