Scientists Transplanted Laboratory-Grown Vaginas Into Women Born Without Them
In a first for medical science researchers at the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Centers Institute for Regenerative Medicine have grown human vaginas in the lab and successfully implanted them into women born without a minge. The procedure has allowed four women to have normally-functioning bodies.
The organ tissue was grown using cells from each patients genitals, then surgically stitched and formed into the shape of a vagina. The condition which causes women to be born without a vagina is Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome, in which a woman is born with underdeveloped sexual organs. Each of the patients in the experiment was a teenager at the time of the surgeries, which took place between 2005 and 2008. The follow up support and monitoring shows the women having normal sexual function and quality of life.
