Live Birth After 5 Organ Transplant

It's a new record! Five years after receiving a 5-organ, multi-visceral transplant at the age of 19 years, a Qatari woman gave birth to a healthy daughter at the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, reports AP Press.
There are so many successful pregnancies following organ transplants that there is a National Transplantation Pregnancy Registry. Technical issues that are routinely handled include adjustment of the doses of immunosuppressant medications because of the increased circulating blood volume during pregnancy, hypertension control, and close management of kidney function.

Details released about this case describe other medical miracles that are, today, simply taken for granted. The pregnancy was established through IVF (in vitro fertilization) and the baby delivered by Cesarean section. What a story! The first pregnancy after a 5-organ transplant including the liver, pancreas, stomach, small and large intestine. And now another new life. That's what I'm talking about.

  1. I've been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth
    enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much
    more useful than ever before.
