About This Topic

Uterine factor infertility is estimated to affect thousands of women worldwide. During the late 1970s, the successful introduction of in-vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection enabled fertility in most infertile couples. However, women with uterine factor infertility are effectively the most considerable non-treatable fraction of the remaining infertile population.

The research field of uterus transplantation was rediscovered in the early 2000s and has rapidly evolved. Uterus transplantation models were developed in several animal models, including nonhuman primates, before entering the experimental and clinical stages in humans. Uterus transplantation is a complex procedure with medical and psychological implications and ethical, moral, and cultural concerns and expectations. This special issue aims to publish the latest experimental and clinical results from various medical specialities in uterus transplantation.
