Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A uterine transplant is the transplantation of a uterus in order to replace one which has undergone necrosis or in Müllerian agenesis. Though the procedure has significant potential, it has been performed only a few times.In 1896, Knauer published the first study of ovarian transplantation and that lead to the investigation of uterine autotransplantation in 1918. Erslan, Hamernik and Hardy, in 1964 and 1966, were the first to perform an animal autotransplantation of the uterus and subsequently deliver a pregnancy from that uterus (Erslan et al. 1966). With the availability of in vitro fertilization in 1978, uterine transplantation research was deferred (Confino et al. 1986).In Saudi Arabia in 2000, a uterine transplant was performed on a patient whose own uterus had hemorrhaged after childbirth. The transplanted uterus functioned for 99 days, however it ultimately needed to be removed after its failure due to blood clotting. Within the medical community there is some debate as to whether or not the transplant can truly be considered successful.
