Introduction: Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) remains one of the most risky situations in obstetrics and major cause of maternal morbidity and mortality worldwide. There can be major psychological sequelae also. Treatment options for PPH include conservative management with uterotonic drugs, selective devascularization by ligation or embolization of the uterine artery, external compression with uterine sutures, intrauterine balloon and hysterectomy. This last issue adds to the maternal drama of a situation with definitive infertility.

Authors: Zaami S, Di Luca A, Marinelli E Abstract Women suffering from Uterine Factor Infertility (UFI) arising from congenital conditions (e.g., Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome) or hysterectomy can fulfill their wish to achieve motherhood only by resorting to surrogacy, which is, however, banned in most countries. Medical research has long been looking into uterus transplant (UTx), which may constitute a valuable alternative for such patients. Following decades of animal testing and clinical trials, several successful pregnancies have been carried to term. Yet UTx is still to be considered as an experimental pro...

Uterine fibroids (UFs; leiomyomas) are benign monoclonal neoplasms of the myometrium and represent the most common tumors in reproductive-age women worldwide. Tumors occur in approximately 77% of women overall and are clinically manifest in approximately 25% by age 45  years. Although benign, these tumors are nonetheless associated with significant morbidity; they are the primary indication for hysterectomy and a major source of gynecologic and reproductive dysfunction, ranging from profuse menstrual bleeding and pelvic pain to infertility, recurrent miscarriage , and preterm labor.

The world’s first baby born by a uterus transplant from a deceased donor is healthy and nearing her first birthday, according to a new case study published Tuesday in the Lancet. Uterus transplants have become more common in recent years, resulting in 11 live births around the world. But all of the other successful deliveries so far have been made possible by living donors — often women who opt to donate their uterus to a close friend or family member without one. The birth resulting from the case detailed in the Lancet, which took place at Brazil’s Hospital das Clínicas last December, is both the first...
