4th Elpat Congress Rome. Ethical, Legal and Psychosocial Aspects of Transplantaton - Abstractbook

"The worldwide experience of uterus transplantation is so far 11 published cases (Saudi Arabia 1, Turkey 1, Sweden 9), and 2 unpublished cases (China 1, US 1). The results of the Swedish study that is the first case series are promising," Niclas Kvarnström (Gothenburg/Sweden) reports in the Abstractbook "4th Elpat Congress. Ethical, Legal and Psychosocial Aspects of Transplantation".

Nine women in the Swedish Group without an uterus were transplanted with uteri from live donors. All donors were related to the recipients. The majority were mothers of the recipients. Two of the transplanted uteri had to be removed within the first four months post surgry. The remaining seven women all went through embryo transfers starting from 12 to 18 months after the transplantation. Seven pregnancies have so far been achieved (in 6 recipients) with two early miscarriages and five live births. The first child was born in September 2014. All children have been delivered with caesarean sections in gestational week 32-36. In three cases the caesarean section had to be done earlyer then planned due to preeclampsia.

Directed deceased donation: beyond the impartial allocation system
"Within a pluralistic account of morality, partial values have a merit of their own and should be assessed in their own terms. These values are extremely relevant in the field of organ transplantation, but are misunderstood at a political level where partiality is put at par with injustice, and where fairness is exclusively taken as impartial justice." Dr. Medard Hilhorst (Erasmus Medical University Rotterdam) argues "that partial values are fundamental
