First Uterus Transplant Fails

On Wednesday, the Cleveland Clinic announced that the first patient in the United States who received a uterus transplant suffered complications and the doctors had to remove the uterus.

The 26-year-old woman received uterus transplant last month from a dead donor after undergoing a nine-hour-long operation. The transplant was the first ever operation conducted in the United States.
