Dr Mats Brannstrom, who is leading the medical team, said a womb transplant remained one of the most complex operations known to medical science.
He said: “Technically it is lot more difficult than transplanting a kidney, liver or heart. The difficulty with it is avoiding haemorrhage and making sure you have long enough blood vessels to connect the womb.
“You are also working deep down in the pelvis area and it is like working in a funnel. It is not like working with a kidney, which is really accessible.”

Now this is history.
The Colombian doctors seem to be ahead of the game.
I found Mrs. Luz comment very interesting. Is someone using the media for free publicity? Lets not give the public false hopes.
Looking at the background of the uterus transplant a Dr. Del Priori predicted in 2006 to be almost ready too and later some British doctors.
I found the video on Youtube.com, very informative.
