Docs conduct 1st successful womb transplants in nine Swedish womenLondon, Jan 14 : Doctors have successfully transplanted wombs in nine women in Sweden.

Dr Mats Brannstrom, of the University of Gothenberg , who was leading the experimental fertility project, is hoping that the technique may help other women to get pregnant, the BBC reported.

Dr Brannstrom's team had recruited 10 women for their trial, out of which one was not able to proceed with the trial for medical reasons, but nine others went on to have a womb transplant.

These women were either born without a uterus or had it removed because of cervical cancer. (ANI)
