A clinical trial in Cleveland is recruiting women to undergo a temporary uterus transplant.
According to the trial description, women with primary uterine infertility will have uteri from deceased donors replace their own for one to two pregnancies.
There's actually precedent for this. The Cleveland Clinic says researchers in Sweden have done nine transplants, which have led to five pregnancies and four births. (Video via University of Gothenberg)
