Every woman loves motherhood, but unfortunately for various reasons, some fail to conceive. One of the reasons for this is a diseased uterus and the second one is the absence of uterus. Women who are unable to conceive because of either diseased/absence of uterus have something to cheer up about. Modern medical science is so advanced that now the diseased uterus can be replaced by a healthy one, thereby, enabling the women to conceive. However, before undergoing this surgical procedure, it is only appropriate that women should understand the concept of uterine transplantation.
- UFI: Under this surgical procedure, the diseased uterus is removed and it is replaced by a healthy one. This procedure is performed on women having a condition known as Uterus Factor Infertility (UFI). UFI is caused due to an irreversible damage, either because of an infection or an injury to the uterus or for women born without uterus.
- Challenging surgical procedure: It is said that nearly 3% to 5% of women population suffer from UFI. This surgical procedure is considered to be very challenging because several blood vessels are connected to the uterus from the pelvic region. The surgeon has to accurately connect these blood vessels after the surgical procedure.
Some of the other important elements in uterine transplantation are briefly explained here:
- The surgical procedure is divided into two. It starts with the retrieval of the damaged uterus, which normally takes about 2 to 3 hours. Thereafter, the transplantation procedure is performed, which takes about 5 to 6 hours.
- The women donating their uterus should be in the reproductive age and should not have any medical complications. Further, the women receiving the uterus should be in the genetic recipient group and also should not have any medical complications.
- The uterus should be healthy. The age of the uterus is not a matter of concern. Further, the uterus transplanted should have been gotten removed after begetting one or two children.
- In the normal course, the recipient should undergo in vitro fertilisation treatment or IVF. This is because the transplanted uterus will not be connected to the fallopian tube, where the fertilisation of egg takes place.
- Women who had children previously or those who had suffered from endometriosis or cancer less than five years earlier, or women who had undergone major pelvic or abdominal surgery, or women with insufficient embryo will not be suited for uterus transplantation surgery.
- Apart from these, it should also be ensured the procedure of transplantation is within the established legal framework of transplantation of human organs. Moreover, you should also consider the cost of the surgical procedure and various risk factors associated with this procedure.

Hi, My weight is increasing rapidly and I have no energy and my periods get late usually by 2-3 months. Its been a constant problem.
Tuberculosis is widely known as a disease that affects the lungs. Tuberculosis is an infection caused by a bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Although most commonly the lungs and bowel are affected, it can affect any organ in the body including the bones and joints .
How and who:
Tubercular bacteria usually enter the body through the airway into lungs or through the gut and spread out to different areas of the body through the blood stream, spine being the most common area. They can stay dormant in the body for many years and start multiplying when the immunity goes down due to any reason. So those with reduced immunity like young kids, old age group, diabetics, those on steroid medication or other immune-suppressive medication are at a high risk of developing tuberculosis of various organs. Patients affected with HIV are also at high risk of developing tubercular infection. But it is not uncommon to see a healthy young person affected with tuberculosis of spine.
Spine is one of the very common structures affected by tuberculosis, leading to significant disability and high risk of paralysis if undetected in the early stages. As the bones in the spine get destroyed by the disease, the spine bends abnormally at the affected level and a deformity develops. There is pus formation at the affected area which can cause compression on the spinal cord and nerves in the spinal canal and lead to paralysis of limbs and loss of bowel and bladder control. Tuberculosis of spine can affect all age groups from infancy to old age.
Spine tuberculosis initially causes pain in the back/neck, which gets worse on movements and while changing posture. Night pains that wake the patient up from sleep is another characteristic feature. Fever, weight loss and loss of appetite are usually associated. Weakness of limb muscles can lead to unstable gait and tendency to fall and the patient usually seeks a support to hold on to while walking.
Diagnosis and treatment:
With MRI being available widely, spinal tuberculosis is being detected at early stages now as compared to X-rays. Most of them can be cured well by anti-tubercular medication (ATT). The medication needs to be taken for a long duration (minimum of 6 months - upto 18 months). Drug resistance is a serious problem needing second line medicines and is more difficult to treat. There are special tests like Gene Xpert available now to detect multiple drug resistant tuberculosis.
In some patients with deformity in spine or those with spinal cord compression causing paralysis, surgery to stabilise the spine and decompress the spinal cord/nerves is required. Surgical treatment in right time can prevent spinal deformity/paralysis and help in faster and better recovery of muscle power in those who have developed paralysis.
So, any persistent back pain needs an evaluation by a Spine physician.
