Doctors at a Lebanese hospital working in conjunction with a Swedish team have successfully completed a uterus transplant – a rare and difficult infertility treatment – for the first time in Lebanon.It was the first time the procedure has been completed in Lebanon, and potentially the first successful uterine transplant in the Middle East.The University of Gothenburg began its own uterus transplant research in 1999, which eventually resulted in the world's first child born from a successful uterus transplant in 2014 .The trial in Lebanon was not the first attempt at a uterus transplant in the Middle East.The world's first human uterus transplant was conducted in Saudi Arabia in 2000, but the uterus ultimately had to be removed after three months due to blood clotting.Several other countries have undertaken successful trials however; the first child from a transplanted uterus was born in the United States in December 2017 .
