Abstract

Uterine transplantation (UTx) aims to treat unconditional uterine factor infertility by replacing a non-functioning or non-existing uterus. After one attempt of UTx in the human 10 years ago, intensive research has been performed. The results of these specific studies on surgical technique, ischaemia-reperfusion injury, immunosuppression and fertility are discussed.
