The hollow thick-walled muscular organ in the female PELVIS. It consists of the fundus (the body) which is the site of EMBRYO IMPLANTATION and FETAL DEVELOPMENT. Beyond the isthmus at the perineal end of fundus, is CERVIX UTERI (the neck) opening into VAGINA. Beyond the isthmi at the upper abdominal end of fundus, are the FALLOPIAN TUBES.
Contraction of the UTERINE MUSCLE.
Endometrial implantation of EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN at the BLASTOCYST stage.
The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.

The neck portion of the UTERUS between the lower isthmus and the VAGINA forming the cervical canal.
The mucous membrane lining of the uterine cavity that is hormonally responsive during the MENSTRUAL CYCLE and PREGNANCY. The endometrium undergoes cyclic changes that characterize MENSTRUATION. After successful FERTILIZATION, it serves to sustain the developing embryo.
Pathological processes involving any part of the UTERUS.
The hormone-responsive glandular layer of ENDOMETRIUM that sloughs off at each menstrual flow (decidua menstrualis) or at the termination of pregnancy. During pregnancy, the thickest part of the decidua forms the maternal portion of the PLACENTA, thus named decidua placentalis. The thin portion of the decidua covering the rest of the embryo is the decidua capsularis.

The major progestational steroid that is secreted primarily by the CORPUS LUTEUM and the PLACENTA. Progesterone acts on the UTERUS, the MAMMARY GLANDS and the BRAIN. It is required in EMBRYO IMPLANTATION; PREGNANCY maintenance, and the development of mammary tissue for MILK production. Progesterone, converted from PREGNENOLONE, also serves as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of GONADAL STEROID HORMONES and adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS.
The surgical removal of one or both ovaries.

A highly vascularized mammalian fetal-maternal organ and major site of transport of oxygen, nutrients, and fetal waste products. It includes a fetal portion (CHORIONIC VILLI) derived from TROPHOBLASTS and a maternal portion (DECIDUA) derived from the uterine ENDOMETRIUM. The placenta produces an array of steroid, protein and peptide hormones (PLACENTAL HORMONES).
The reproductive organ (GONADS) in female animals. In vertebrates, the ovary contains two functional parts: the OVARIAN FOLLICLE for the production of female germ cells (OOGENESIS); and the endocrine cells (GRANULOSA CELLS; THECA CELLS; and LUTEAL CELLS) for the production of ESTROGENS and PROGESTERONE.
Compounds that interact with ESTROGEN RECEPTORS in target tissues to bring about the effects similar to those of ESTRADIOL. Estrogens stimulate the female reproductive organs, and the development of secondary female SEX CHARACTERISTICS. Estrogenic chemicals include natural, synthetic, steroidal, or non-steroidal compounds.
Delay in the attachment and implantation of BLASTOCYST to the uterine ENDOMETRIUM. The blastocyst remains unattached beyond the normal duration thus delaying embryonic development.
Surgical removal or artificial destruction of gonads.
A complete separation or tear in the wall of the UTERUS with or without expulsion of the FETUS. It may be due to injuries, multiple pregnancies, large fetus, previous scarring, or obstruction.
A synthetic nonsteroidal estrogen used in the treatment of menopausal and postmenopausal disorders. It was also used formerly as a growth promoter in animals. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP 85-002, 1985), diethylstilbestrol has been listed as a known carcinogen. (Merck, 11th ed)
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.
A post-MORULA preimplantation mammalian embryo that develops from a 32-cell stage into a fluid-filled hollow ball of over a hundred cells. A blastocyst has two distinctive tissues. The outer layer of trophoblasts gives rise to extra-embryonic tissues. The inner cell mass gives rise to the embryonic disc and eventual embryo proper.

Passive or active movement of SPERMATOZOA from the testicular SEMINIFEROUS TUBULES through the male reproductive tract as well as within the female reproductive tract.
Cell surface proteins that bind oxytocin with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. Oxytocin receptors in the uterus and the mammary glands mediate the hormone's stimulation of contraction and milk ejection. The presence of oxytocin and oxytocin receptors in neurons of the brain probably reflects an additional role as a neurotransmitter.
One or more layers of EPITHELIAL CELLS, supported by the basal lamina, which covers the inner or outer surfaces of the body.
The development of the PLACENTA, a highly vascularized mammalian fetal-maternal organ and major site of transport of oxygen, nutrients, and fetal waste products between mother and FETUS. The process begins at FERTILIZATION, through the development of CYTOTROPHOBLASTS and SYNCYTIOTROPHOBLASTS, the formation of CHORIONIC VILLI, to the progressive increase in BLOOD VESSELS to support the growing fetus.

Factor VII deficiency rescues the intrauterine lethality in mice associated with a tissue factor pathway inhibitor deficit. (1/6201)

Mice doubly heterozygous for a modified tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) allele (tfpi delta) lacking its Kunitz-type domain-1 (TFPI+/delta) and for a deficiency of the factor VII gene (FVII+/-) were mated to generate 309 postnatal and 205 embryonic day 17.5 (E17. 5) offspring having all the predicted genotypic combinations. Progeny singly homozygous for the tfpidelta modification but with the wild-type fVII allele (FVII+/+/TFPIdelta/delta), and mice singly homozygous for the fVII deficiency and possessing the wild-type tfpi allele (FVII-/-/TFPI+/+), displayed previously detailed phenotypes (i.e., a high percentage of early embryonic lethality at E9.5 or normal development with severe perinatal bleeding, respectively). Surprisingly, mice of the combined FVII-/-/TFPIdelta/delta genotype were born at the expected mendelian frequency but suffered the fatal perinatal bleeding associated with the FVII-/- genotype. Mice carrying the FVII+/-/TFPIdelta/delta genotype were also rescued from the lethality associated with the FVII+/+/TFPIdelta/delta genotype but succumbed to perinatal consumptive coagulopathy. Thus, the rescue of TFPIdelta/delta embryos, either by an accompanying homozygous or heterozygous FVII deficiency, suggests that diminishment of FVII activity precludes the need for TFPI-mediated inhibition of the FVIIa/tissue factor coagulation pathway during embryogenesis. Furthermore, the phenotypes of these combined deficiency states suggest that embryonic FVII is produced in mice as early as E9.5 and that any level of maternal FVII in early-stage embryos is insufficient to cause a coagulopathy in TFPIdelta/delta mice.  (+info)

Progesterone inhibits estrogen-induced cyclin D1 and cdk4 nuclear translocation, cyclin E- and cyclin A-cdk2 kinase activation, and cell proliferation in uterine epithelial cells in mice. (2/6201)

The response of the uterine epithelium to female sex steroid hormones provides an excellent model to study cell proliferation in vivo since both stimulation and inhibition of cell proliferation can be studied. Thus, when administered to ovariectomized adult mice 17beta-estradiol (E2) stimulates a synchronized wave of DNA synthesis and cell division in the epithelial cells, while pretreatment with progesterone (P4) completely inhibits this E2-induced cell proliferation. Using a simple method to isolate the uterine epithelium with high purity, we have shown that E2 treatment induces a relocalization of cyclin D1 and, to a lesser extent, cdk4 from the cytoplasm into the nucleus and results in the orderly activation of cyclin E- and cyclin A-cdk2 kinases and hyperphosphorylation of pRb and p107. P4 pretreatment did not alter overall levels of cyclin D1, cdk4, or cdk6 nor their associated kinase activities but instead inhibited the E2-induced nuclear localization of cyclin D1 to below the control level and, to a lesser extent, nuclear cdk4 levels, with a consequent inhibition of pRb and p107 phosphorylation. In addition, it abrogated E2-induced cyclin E-cdk2 activation by dephosphorylation of cdk2, followed by inhibition of cyclin A expression and consequently of cyclin A-cdk2 kinase activity and further inhibition of phosphorylation of pRb and p107. P4 is used therapeutically to oppose the effect of E2 during hormone replacement therapy and in the treatment of uterine adenocarcinoma. This study showing a novel mechanism of cell cycle inhibition by P4 may provide the basis for the development of new antiestrogens.  (+info)

Daidzein and genistein glucuronides in vitro are weakly estrogenic and activate human natural killer cells at nutritionally relevant concentrations. (3/6201)

Daidzein and genistein glucuronides (DG and GG), major isoflavone metabolites, may be partly responsible for biological effects of isoflavones, such as estrogen receptor binding and natural killer cell (NK) activation or inhibition. DG and GG were synthesized using 3-methylcholanthrene-induced rat liver microsomes. The Km and Vmax for daidzein and genistein were 9.0 and 7.7 micromol/L, and 0.7 and 1.6 micromol/(mg protein. min), respectively. The absence of ultraviolet absorbance maxima shifts in the presence of sodium acetate confirmed that the synthesized products were 7-O-glucuronides. DG and GG were further purified by a Sephadex LH-20 column. DG and GG competed with the binding of 17beta-(3H) estradiol to estrogen receptors of B6D2F1 mouse uterine cytosol. The concentrations required for 50% displacement of 17beta-(3H) estradiol (CB50) were: 17beta-estradiol, 1.34 nmol/L; diethylstilbestrol, 1.46 nmol/L; daidzein, 1.6 micromol/L; DG, 14.7 micromol/L; genistein, 0.154 micromol/L; GG, 7.27 micromol/L. In human peripheral blood NK cells, genistein at <0.5 micromol/L and DG and GG at 0.1-10 micromol/L enhanced NK cell-mediated K562 cancer cell killing significantly (P < 0.05). At > 0.5 micromol/L, genistein inhibited NK cytotoxicity significantly (P < 0.05). The glucuronides only inhibited NK cytotoxicity at 50 micromol/L. Isoflavones, and especially the isoflavone glucuronides, enhanced activation of NK cells by interleukin-2 (IL-2), additively. At physiological concentrations, DG and GG were weakly estrogenic, and they activated human NK cells in nutritionally relevant concentrations in vitro, probably at a site different from IL-2 action.  (+info)

An ultrastructural study of implantation in the golden hamster. II. Trophoblastic invasion and removal of the uterine epithelium. (4/6201)

Sixty six implantation sites from 18 golden hamsters were examined with light and electron microscopy between 4 and 5 1/2 days of pregnancy (post-ovulation). At 4 days some blastocysts began to invade the uterine epithelium, with trophoblastic processes penetrating and engulfing portions of the uterine epithelium. The majority of epithelial cells appeared normal before invasion, although at two implantation sites three or four adjoining epithelial cells were necrotic before penetration by the trophoblast. In general the epithelial cells were degenerating at the time the trophoblast invaded the epithelium. Inclusions, representing portions of the engulfed epithelium, and varying in size and electron density, were present throughout the invading trophoblast cells at 4 1/2 and 5 days of pregnancy. At 5 1/2 days the uterine epithelium had disappeared and the embryo was now almost completely surrounded by blood lacunae.  (+info)

Molecular and cellular aspects of endometrial receptivity. (5/6201)

Endocrine and paracrine controls regulate the endometrium during the luteal phase of the cycle to permit implantation. Part of this differentiation process is the production of a specific secretion which fills the intrauterine cavity and glandular lumen. Its molecular composition originates from the gland secretion, from transudations from stroma, from the endometrial blood vessels, and last, but not least, from cellular components of apoptotic and exfoliated cells. We have studied the secretions of all phases during the menstrual cycle using patterns evaluated by SDS-PAGE, by laser densitometry or Western blots. Uterine secretion electrophoresis (USE) permits detailed analyses of the intrauterine micromilieu and allows clinical assessment of the receptive stage of endometrium during the luteal phase. Several individual protein bands have been defined as characteristic markers for such receptive pattern. We have isolated and identified the molecular structure of several of these proteins, e.g. histones, cyclophilin, transthyretin, haptoglobin and uteroglobin. Investigations on the endocrine regulation of these proteins, were carried out on the uterine secretions of patients treated with progesterone antagonists (mifepristone and onapristone). The results demonstrate how progesterone-dependent components produce a receptive pattern, which can serve as a useful and precise marker in the clinical diagnosis of the luteal phase. Essential progesterone-dependent components differentiating during the luteal phase may provide new targets for contraceptive interventions by preventing the physiological changes typical of receptivity.  (+info)

Mucin expression and function in the female reproductive tract. (6/6201)

Reproductive tract epithelia are characterized by the presence of a thick, apical glycocalyx. This glycoprotein coat is drastically reduced in the uterus of many species during the time of embryo implantation. Recent studies indicate that mucin glycoproteins constitute a large proportion of the apical glycocalyx. One of these mucins, Muc-1, has particularly important functions at the luminal surface of the uterus and other female reproductive tract tissues. Muc-1 appears to play a dominant role in maintaining a functionally non-receptive uterine surface with regard to blastocyst attachment. Conversion to a receptive uterine state is brought about by the concerted actions of ovarian steroid hormones that in several species also strongly modulate Muc-1 protein and mRNA expression. Muc-1 also appears to serve a general function in protecting reproductive tract mucosa since Muc-1 null mice are particularly prone to bacterial infection. Collectively, these studies indicate that mucins, including Muc-1, play important barrier roles in reproductive processes and protection from bacterial pathogenesis in the female reproductive tract.  (+info)

Human uterine lymphocytes. (7/6201)

During the luteal phase and the early months of pregnancy, there is a dense mucosal infiltration of CD56+ natural killer (NK) cells. These uterine NK cells have a phenotype (CD56bright, CD16-, mCD3-) which distinguishes them from peripheral blood NK cells (CD56dim, CD16bright, mCD3-). The uterine NK cells are in close association with extravillous trophoblast (EVT) cells which infiltrate into the decidua and maternal spiral arteries. This subpopulation of trophoblast expresses two human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I molecules, HLA-G and HLA-C. Circulating NK cells express receptors for HLA class I molecules. We have recently found evidence that similar receptors are present on decidual NK cells belonging to both the Killer Inhibitory Receptor (KIR) and CD94 families. The repertoire of NK receptors expressed varies between different women. The findings indicate that decidual NK cells do have receptors for trophoblast HLA class I molecules. Experiments are underway to determine the effects of this interaction on NK cell function.  (+info)

Myometrial zonal differentiation and uterine junctional zone hyperplasia in the non-pregnant uterus. (8/6201)

Human non-gravid myometrium differentiates in response to ovarian sex steroids into a subendometrial layer or junctional zone and an outer myometrial layer. Compared to the outer myometrial layer, the junctional zone myocytes are characterized by higher cellular density and lower cytoplasmic-nuclear ratio. These structural differences allow in-vivo visualization of the myometrial zonal anatomy by T2-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. The human myometrium is also functionally polarized. Video-vaginosonography studies have shown that propagated myometrial contractions in the non-pregnant uterus originate only from the junctional zone and that the frequency and orientation of these contraction waves are dependent on the phase of the menstrual cycle. The mechanisms underlying zonal myometrial differentiation are not known, but growing evidence suggests that ovarian hormone action may be mediated through cytokines and uterotonins locally released by the basal endometrial layer and endometrio-myometrial T-lymphocytes. Irregular thickening of the junctional zone due to inordinate proliferation of the inner myometrium, junctional zone hyperplasia, is a common MR finding in women suffering from menstrual dysfunction. Preliminary data suggest that junctional zone hyperplasia is further characterized by loss of normal inner myometrial function. Although irregular thickening of the junctional zone has been associated with diffuse uterine adenomyosis, the precise relationship between subendometrial smooth muscle proliferation and myometrial invasion by endometrial glands and stroma remains to be established.  (+info)

Bicornuate uterus is typically classified based on whether or not the division extends to the external cervical os. Bicornuate uteri with a division above the os are called bicornuate unicollis and those with a divided os are called bicornuate bicollis.[2] There is a continuous range of the degree and location of the fusion of the paramesonephric ducts, and existence of a spectrum, rather than a fixed number of types corresponding to strict medical definitions. Two processes that occur during the embryonic development of the paramesonephric ducts - fusion and reabsorption - can be affected to different degrees.[3] There is also a hybrid bicornuate uterus: External fundal depressions of variable depths associated with a septate uterus can be seen by laparoscopy, indicating the coexistence of the two anomalies. These cases are candidates for hysteroscopic metroplasty under appropriate sonographic and/or laparoscopic monitoring.[4] An obstructed bicornuate uterus showing uni or bilateral ...

As an alternative to surrogate pregnancy or adoption uterus transplantation might be indicated for cases of infertility of uterine origin. The main complications might be rejection and thrombosis. The objective of this work was to develop a model of whole uterus transplantation that was applicable to the human setting, using grafts obtained from brain-dead donors, and suitable for immunologic and viability follow-up with a reduced risk of thrombosis. Two donors and 1 recipient were operated. The first graft was used for an anatomic study; the second was used ...
The mucosal immune system of the female reproductive tract (FRT) balances the dual functions of protection against invading pathogens and adaptation of the endometrial environment for successful fertilization and implantation. Growth factors are important in normal endometrial physiology and can act as mediators of some indirect effects of E 2. This thesis was undertaken to test the overall hypothesis that E 2 and keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) regulate the secretion of macrophage inflammatory protein 3α (MIP3α) and keratinocyte-derived chemokine (KC) by mouse uterine epithelial cells. Culture of polarized uterine epithelial cells with KGF increased both apical and basolateral secretion of MIP3α as well as basolateral secretion of KC. E 2 added to the culture media inhibited both constitutive and KGF-induced secretion of MIP3α, yet further increased KGF-induced basolateral KC secretion. The inhibition of constitutive MIP3α secretion by E 2 was mediated via the estrogen receptor. Other ...
Swedish scientists at the University of Gothenburg conducted a series of experiments on uterus transplantation, the results of which were presented at the annual ESHRE conference in Prague. Back in 2003, researchers have conducted uterus transplantation o / .
Our data show that mothers with a bicornuate uterus have about four times the risk of having liveborn infants with congenital defects than mothers with a normal uterus. To our knowledge, this is the first time this risk has been quantified using a case-control approach.. Previous authors6 7 have suggested a relationship between maternal bicornuate uterus and congenital deformations and vascular disruptions in their offspring. However, these reports were based on clinical observations and not on epidemiologic studies. In our data, cases with deformations (limb contractures, scoliosis, nasal hypoplasia, micrognathia, and clubfoot) constituted 34.2% (13/38) of total cases, which is similar to previously reported risk.7 However, as shown in Table 2, nasal hypoplasia was the only deformation that we found to be statistically related with this maternal uterine defect. Other deformations, such as micrognathia, scoliosis, limb contractures, and clubfoot, were more frequent in infants of these mothers ...
This study demonstrates that MTUS1 is a P4-PGR signaling target gene in the murine uterus. The ovarian steroid hormones tightly regulate the uterine endometrium, and stimulate uterine cell proliferation by various mechanisms, such as induction of growth factors, paracrine signaling, and by direct regulation of cell cycle genes [22]. A transgenic mouse with a null mutation in the Pgr gene (PRKO) is a well-designed experimental model to understand the essential role for PGR in P4-mediated uterine responses [20]. P4 induces the expression of MTUS1 protein in uterine epithelial cells of wild type mice but not PRKO mice at GD 3.5. Increased P4 rapidly suppressed endometrial proliferation by downregulation of genes related with DNA replication such as proliferating cell nuclear antigen, cellular marker of proliferation, thymidine kinase 1, forkhead box protein O1 [23]. PGR is upregulated in the LE from GD 0.5 to GD 3.5 and in both epithelial and stromal cells and then abruptly decreased in luminal ...
The uterus is part the female reproductive system. Other structures and organs that are part of the reproduction system are the vagina, ovaries and fallopian tubes.[3] The uterus has four main parts. The fundus is the upper part of the uterus. It has a rounded shape. Another part of the uterus is the body. The uterotubal angles are the parts connected to the Fallopian tubes. The bottom part of the uterus is the cervix.[4] The uterus has three layers. The outer layer is called the perimetrium.[5] It is a thin layer that surrounds the outside of the uterus. The perimetrium is made of tissue made of epithelial cells. The middle layer is the myometrium. Most of the uterus is made up of the myometrium.[6] The layer on the inside is the endometrium. The endometrium is made of secretory, ciliated, and basal cells.[4] The uterus is not in the same place for all women. It is tilted forward in most women. Other women have a uterus that tilts up or backwards.[4][7][8] The uterus is supplied by blood ...

Normal Uterus and Normal Uterus size is discussed in this article by the founder of the Institute for Female Alternative Medicine Dr del Junco Jr.
Absent uterus is a disorder in female reproductive system. The most common reason of absent uterus is its removing during surgical procedure called hysterctomy. Hysterectomy may be made for many reasons. It can be used to treat chronic pain, certain types of cancer, infections, uterine prolapse (when uterus drops through the cervix and protrudes from the vagina), endometriosis (inner linig of the uterus grows outside and cause pain and bleeding) or adenomyosis (inner lining of the uterus grows into uterus muscle).. The extent of hysterectomy depends on the reason. Usually, the entire uterus is removed; moreover, the ovaries and fallopian tubes are removed as well during the surgical procedure. After removing the procedure, it is impossible for a woman to get pregnant.. Apart from those cases, when the uterus had to be removed surgically (hysterectomy) due to the complication (e. g. during the childbirth), the main cause of absent uterus is in incorrect development of Müllerian duct in embryonic ...

In septate uterus, the uterus appears normal on the outer in size and shape, while in didelphys uterus there are two uterine horns that join together at their lower part. Diagnosis is of great importance since in septate uterus, the section of the septum is performed with hysteroscopic surgery techniques, while in didelphys uterus the reconstructive surgery Strassmann- Jones procedures that are undertaken with laparotomy may be applied.. In order to comprehend the congenital anomalies of the uterus it is necessary to refer to elements of embryology of the female genital tract.. The fallopian tubes, the uterus (body and cervix) and the upper two thirds of the vagina are formed during embryonic life from the peremesonephric ducts (also known as Mullerian ducts). Defects in the formation of an organ during pregnancy (congenital anomalies) may be due to an inherent defect or the action of an external harmful factor. Harmful factors that may result in congenital anomalies in all the systems of an ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Human uterus retrieval from a multi-organ donor. AU - Del Priore, Giuseppe. AU - Stega, Jeanetta. AU - Sieunarine, Krishen. AU - Ungar, Laszlo. AU - Smith, J. Richard. PY - 2007/1/1. Y1 - 2007/1/1. N2 - OBJECTIVE: To determine if a uterus can be retrieved for reproductive organ transplantation and to describe the surgical technique. METHODS: We participated in a local organ donor network retrieval team for over 6 months. Heart-beating, brain-dead multi-organ donors were identified through an existing donor network following routine protocols. RESULTS: After institutional review board and organ donor network approval of the uterus transplantation project, approximately 1,800 eligible organ donors were identified as required by legislation. Multi-organ procurement surgery took place in approximate 150 of these, with nine specifically consented for the uterus retrieval. Regularly performed multi-organ transplantation retrievals included the uterus without complications in eight ...

Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (T do 2) is a rate-limiting enzyme which directs the conversion of tryptophan to kynurenine. The aim of this study was to examine the expression and regulation of T do 2 in mouse uterus during decidualization. T do 2 mRNA was mainly expressed in the decidua on days 6-8 of pregnancy. By real-time PCR, a high level of T do 2 expression was observed in the uteri from days 6 to 8 of pregnancy, although T do 2 expression was observed on days 1-8. Simultaneously, T do 2 mRNA was also detected under in vivo and in vitro artificial decidualization. Estrogen, progesterone, and 8-bromoadenosine-cAMP could induce the expression of T do 2 in the ovariectomized mouse uterus and uterine stromal cells. T do 2 could regulate cell proliferation and stimulate the expression of decidual marker Dtprp in the uterine stromal cells and decidual cells. Overexpression of T do 2 could upregulate the expression of Ahr, Cox2, and Vegf genes in uterine stromal cells, while T do 2 inhibitor 680C91 ...

The recipient, who needs a transplant, but still has viable ovaries, will have eggs retrieved, fertilized in vitro (IVF), and frozen. The transplant will then be done, meaning, the donor will have her uterus retrieved, and transplanted into the patient. The patient needs to take anti-rejection medications in order to accept the uterus. Once the uterus is well implanted and healed, the frozen embryos will be planted and hopefully yield to a healthy pregnancy ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Circulatory responses to systemic infusions of estrone and estradiol-17α in nonpregnant, oophorectomized ewes. AU - Rosenfeld, Charles R.. AU - Rivera, Richard. PY - 1978/10/15. Y1 - 1978/10/15. N2 - Uterine arterial blood flow dose-response curves to systemic infusions of either estrone (E1) or estradiol-17α (E2α) were determined in ten oophorectomized, nonpregnant ewes. Maximum uterine blood flow occurred with 5 μg per kilogram of E1 and ≥ 20 μg per kilogram of E2α. Total uterine blood flow measured with isotope-labeled microspheres rose more than tenfold following 30 μg per kilogram of either estrogen, as did blood flow to the myometrium, endometrium, and uterine caruncles (p , 0.05). Distribution of uterine blood flow was unaltered. Cervical and vaginal blood flows increased ten-to twenty-fold with E1 and E2α, while mammary gland blood flow rose 54 and 77 per cent. Significant increases in adrenal and thyroid blood flows were documented. The only significant ...
This is a uterus being pulled out of the body during a cesarean section. It is the norm (but not done 100% of the time) to lift the uterus out to visualize the area as well as clean the interior as well as possible.. The uterus is being held by the fundus, the top of the uterus. When we measure the uterus during pregnancy, we measure, in centimeters (after 12 weeks), from the top of the pubic bone to the fundus. The procedure is called measuring the fundal height.. Along the sides of the uterus, you can see the longish fallopian tubes. At the bottom of the tubes are the ovaries. They are the puffy areas; one doctor is pointing to one ovary on the right side of the picture.. I know many women have a visceral reaction to this picture, but, from a teaching perspective, its amazing! How often do we (who dont do surgery) get to see something so miraculous as the uterus!? The home to our children! (No matter the route of exit.) The body looks so primal, so fragile in this picture. Even more reason ...
A tilted uterus can be treated with laparoscopic, outpatient surgery. The laparoscopic procedures will involve either surgically tilting the uterus forward, removing adhesion, endometriosis, or fibroid tumors which hold the uterus in the wrong position or, in some rare cases, a hysterectomy will be performed to completely remove the uterus. For temporary relief, a pessary or small plastic support can be placed behind the uterus to tilt it forward. A few doctors recommend trying special exercises to reposition the uterus, but if these exercises work the benefit is typically temporary and the uterus usually falls backward eventually ...

Typically, a womans uterus is about the size of her fist or an orange. An enlarged uterus means just that--its larger than normal. Most women will not know their uterus is enlarged as it is hard to feel the uterus unless you are pregnant. Your health care provider will be able to distinguish an enlarged uterus via an internal exam. The symptoms of an enlarged uterus are dependent upon the cause. ...
The study will be an open controlled pilot study of 6 patients with early-onset severe preeclampsia. Patients will receive Atenativ in addition to conventional therapy The patients will be followed up within the study until three days after delivery. In addition to conventional therapy, i.v. administration of Atenativ will be given in a dosage aimed to raise the plasma level of AT initially to 120% (1.2 kIU/L) The goal is to achieve and maintain plasma activity of about 100% during two weeks. The dose of Atenativ is based on the actual plasma level of AT measured 2 hours before the dose. During the first two days of treatment plasma samples will be drawn for the measurement of AT activity twice a day, once before and 12 hours after infusion in order to monitor the dosage. Thereafter and until study discontinuation AT will be measured once a day. The treatment will continue for two weeks if plasma AT III is below 100% (1.0 kIU/L).Uterine blood flow is measured before, during and after the AT ...
Understanding the critical cellular events that define synchrony between the developing embryo and the maternal uterus in a species that is phylogenetically related to humans will be paramount in improving the success of assisted reproductive therapies. Ongoing studies in the Fazleabas laboratory are at the leading edge of this type of research endeavor.. His laboratory was the first to conclusively demonstrate that signals from the primate embryo, like those of other species, induce cell specific changes in uterine gene expression.. These changes are thought to play critical roles in establishing a synchrony between the maternal environment and the developing embryo that is a pre requisite for a successful pregnancy. These studies have clearly elucidated the mechanisms by which apoptosis is inhibited within the uterus in the presence of a conceptus, the fundamental hormonal and cellular requirements associated with the process of decidualization and potential functions of uterine proteins in ...
What is a septate uterus? Unless you have a medical background, you may struggle for a definition. You may assume that it has something to do with infection because the word is similar to sepsis or septic, but this is not the case. The word comes from septum, which is simply a tissue dividing two chambers, such as those found in the heart or the middle of the nose. A septate uterus is therefore a uterus which is divided into two by a septum.. ...

Outflow Obstruction: anything that can partially block the outflow of fluid from the uterus during menses can contribute to clotting. One large fibroid growing in the side wall of the uterus and pushing into the uterine cavity distorting the shape of the uterus. If theyre inside the uterus they have a bigger chance of effecting the pregnancy and might make you high risk.
What is the uterus? The uterus or womb is a major female hormone-responsive secondary sex organ of the reproductive system in humans and most other mammals. In the human, the lower end of the uterus, the cervix, opens into the vagina, while the upper end, the fundus, is connected to the fallopian tubes. It is within the uterus that the fetus develops during gestation. The human uterus is pear-shaped and about 7.6 cm…

Tests of fetal well being including fetal movement counts are especially important for diabetic mothers through the final trimester of pregnancy. A uterine positioning system was used to mobilize the uterus with an intrauterine canula. Embolization is relatively new to the field of gynecology and we are still learning about its potential effects on future fertility. Symptoms of fibroid, viz: Menorrhagia can be controlled with progesterone containing intrauterine devices. Hardened cervix and uterus, chronical inflammation do fibroids cause cramping 4dpo the uterus, enlarged uterus, puss and boils in the uterus.

Yep. My uterus is cantankerous. With all their medical experience and research and fancy degrees, thats the term doctors have coined for a rogue reproductive organ: irritable uterus. So while Im not in labor yet (thank God), my babymaker is apparently a little bit pissed off. Doctors dont know much about what causes uteruses to get so irritable, but they do know that an irritable uterus causes frequent, sporadic, low-grade contractions that last between 30 seconds and one minute but usually dont lead to labor. If it becomes more severe, women are occasionally put on bedrest. I was told to simply drink more water (a hydrated uterus is a happier uterus) and go to the hospital if I notice more than six contractions in an hour.. Hopefully my OBGYN can tell me a little bit more at my next appointment. In the meantime, Ill be guzzling H2O and attempting to make peace with my angry organ. ...
A woman from Texas with a transplanted uterus has given birth, marking a watershed medical success in the United States.. The New York Times reports that the mother was born without a uterus and received the organ from a living donor last year at the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. And at Baylor last month, she gave birth to a baby boy via caesarian section.. It is the first time that a child has been born to a woman with a transplanted uterus in the United States. But another eight women who had uterus transplants have given birth since 2014 - all of them at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Sweden, which pioneered the procedure, according to The Washington Post.. Uterine transplants have been hailed as potentially life-altering for women who do not have a uterus, either because they were born without one, or because they had to have it removed due to cancer, complications from childbirth, or other health issues. The fact that the transplant procedure was successfully ...

The Black Uterus was born in the early 1970s, in the nascent revolutionary cauldron of the Womens Movement. The Black Uterus emerged from the revolutionary power symbol of the 1960s, sisterhood is powerful, black power, the uprising of the oppressed. This powerful symbol of female energy was conceived in the fertile imaginations of Canadas creative West Coast women who cultivated their female energy as they prowled the night in the cities, towns and countryside, leaving graffiti on the walls of their beloved East Side, illuminating the turn of the millenium with the power of The Black Uterus. When darkness begins to press them, they look into the night sky, and the silhouette of the Black Uterus appears in an orb, calling the women to gather as if they are a storm of brilliant energy. ...
Cosmoread: First uterus transplant in the United States has been fired just weeks after the procedure, and only a handful of these operations have been performed successfully in other countries. So what makes it so challenging uterus transplant, and thats why they can fail?.

Mullerian duct anomalies (MDAs) are congenital defects of the female genital tract that arise from abnormal embryological development of the Mullerian ducts. Unicornuate uterus with or without rudimentary horn is developmental anomaly which occurs due to abnormal or failed development of one of the paired mullerian duct or fusion of the ducts. Women with unicornuate uterus have increased incidence of obstetric complications like spontaneous abortions, preterm delivery and intrauterine foetal demise and gynaecological complications like infertility, endometriosis and dysmenorrhoea. A 25 years old, primigravida was admitted at 38 weeks 3 days gestational age with complaints of leaking per vaginum. She was induced with PGE2 gel under antibiotic coverage to prevent chorioamnionitis. She underwent emergency caesarean section for failure to progress and intra-operatively she was incidentally found to have unicornuate uterus with contralateral fallopian tube directly getting attached to the ovary.

Growth factors produced in the uterine endometrium are considered to be involved in the proliferation of the mouse uterine stromal cells induced by estradiol-17beta (E-2) and progesterone (P). The effect of epidermal growth factor (EGF) and transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha), one of EGF-related growth factors, on the proliferation of mouse uterine stromal cells was studied in a serum-free culture. The growth of the uterine stromal cells was measured by MTT assay. EGF was found to increase the number of uterine stromal cells in a dose-dependent manner. The DNA-replicating cells were investigated using the immunocytochemical detection of bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU)-labeled cells. EGF and TGF-alpha increased the percentage of BrdU-Iabeled cells in a dose-dependent manner. Administration of the combination of E-2 (10(-9) M) and P (10(-7) M) for 2 days increased the percentage of BrdU-Iabeled cells 2.3-fold. The stimulatory effect of EGF, TGF-a and the combination of E2 and P on DNA ...
A 31-year-old gravida 3 para 1 woman with a history of a left unicornuate uterus with a noncommunicating rudimentary right horn came to our facility to establish care. At another facility approximately 2 to 3 weeks earlier, vaginal ultrasonography showed a 5-week intrauterine pregnancy in the left unicornuate uterus with a fetal pole. Findings on vaginal ultrasonography at the current visit were suspicious for an 8-week pregnancy in the right noncommunicating horn. This finding was confirmed by a maternal fetal medicine specialist. The patient was counseled regarding treatment options and the significantly higher risk of rupture of the rudimentary horn as the gestational age progressed. She was referred to Johns Hopkins Hospital for evaluation and management. ...
Dr. Anthony Shaya, MD, MPH, FACOG, of Partners in Womens Health, answered some questions about this rare uterine malformation.. What is a unicorn uterus? A unicornuate uterus is when there is only one side or one horn to the uterus. Cornu means horn in latin. The other side (meaning the other horn) is either very small or completely absent.. How does it happen? A brief course on embryology is needed. The uterus normally forms from two ducts, the mullerian ducts. In the womb, early in gestation, these two ducts will form on either side of the female fetus in the lower abdominal region. Normally the uterus is formed when the two ducts come from either side and meet in the middle during growth and development of the fetus. If only one duct forms initially, then there will be only one side of the uterus that will form, resulting in a a unicornuate uterus.. How common is it? It is fairly rare, around 1/4000 women. It is just one of different types of uterine malformations that can occur.. What are ...
Uterus didelphys - What is uterus didelphys? Double Uterus. In a female fetus, the uterus starts out as two small tubes. As the fetus develops, the tubes normally join to create one larger, hollow organ - the uterus. Sometimes, however, the tubes dont join completely. Instead, each one develops into a separate structure. This condition is called double uterus (uterus didelphys). Treatment is needed only if a double uterus causes symptoms or complications.
A Unicornuate uterus is a rare congenital (before birth) abnormality that results from the two tubelike fetal structures that normally make up the uterus not forming in the correct way.
In a new international project - the Human Uterus Cell Atlas (HUTER) - researchers from the Human Protein Atlas and three other European countries will create a single-cell and spatial reference map of the human uterus. The HUTER project has been funded 4 million Euro from the European Union program H2020, and will run for two years (2020-2021).. The uterus is a fundamental organ for reproduction and womens health. Since endometrial tissue regenerates monthly and its transformation is executed through dynamic changes and interactions of multiple cell types, the organ is also a model in regenerative medicine. The objective of HUTER is to create an unprecedented single-cell and spatial map of the genetic and proteomic changes that occur in the uterus during the menstrual cycle as well as changes associated with different stages of a womans life. An increased understanding of the molecular repertoire of human uterus will help to address uterine diseases such as endometriosis, increase ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cooperative control via lymphoid enhancer factor 1/T cell factor 3 and estrogen receptor-α for uterine gene regulation by estrogen. AU - Ray, Sanhita. AU - Xu, Fuhua. AU - Wang, Haibin. AU - Das, Sanjoy K.. PY - 2008/5. Y1 - 2008/5. N2 - Accumulating evidence indicates that estrogen regulates diverse but interdependent signaling pathways via estrogen receptor (ER)-dependent and -independent mechanisms. However, molecular relationship between these pathways for gene regulation under the direction of estrogen remains unknown. To address this possibility, our uterine analysis of Wnt/β-catenin downstream effectors revealed that lymphoid enhancer factor 1 (Lef-1) and T cell factor 3 (Tcf-3) are up-regulated temporally by 17β-estradiol (E2) in an ER-independent manner. Lef-1 is abundantly up-regulated early (within 2 h), whereas Tcf-3 is predominantly induced after 6 h, and both are sustained through 24 h. Interestingly, activated Lef-1/Tcf-3 molecularly interacted with ERα in a ...
Methods Thirty female Sprague-Dawley rats with regular 4-day oestrus cycles were divided into a sham operation group (Control, n=10) and two OVX groups that remained untreated (OVX group, n=10) or received EA treatment (OVX+EA group, n=10). In the latter group, EA was applied at CV4, CV3, SP6 and bilateral Zigong (30 min per day) for 3 days. The effects of EA on uterine morphology were observed by H&E staining. Quantitative real-time reverse transcription-PCR (qRT-PCR) and Western blotting were used to measure ERα and ERβ mRNA and protein expression, respectively. ...

Many women believe that having an inverted uterus is a severe health disorder and that they are unable to get pregnant. Fortunately, such a problem is very common and is harmless. Usually, women have inherited this shape of uterus from their mother, but there are also cases when they had an accident which affected this organ. Although the uterus is not placed in the right position, a woman with such a problem is able to conceive and carry a baby, so she has nothing to worry about. This type of uterus is not associated with other medical problems, so women shouldnt worry about this. In the past, many of them believed that a different shape of their uterus meant the impossibility to get pregnant, which was a huge mistake. Some of them believe this even today, so they have to get informed to find out more about what is happening with their body. Nevertheless, a changed position of the uterus enables women to conceive a baby harder, but this doesnt happen in all cases. Fertility depends on many ...

In view of the emerging association between hypertensive disease in pregnancy and spontaneous preterm birth, we hypothesized that uterine artery resistance could also predict spontaneous preterm birth. Material and methods: We performed a cohort study of women with singleton pregnancies. Uterine artery resistance was routinely measured at the 18-22 weeks anomaly scan. Pregnancies complicated by congenital anomalies or intrauterine fetal death were excluded. We analyzed if the waveform of the uterine artery (no notch, ...

Specifically, the activator content of the endometrial functionalis and subjacent myometrium were separately analyzed. No significant variation in this fibrinolytic activator among various geographical locations within the uterus (cornua, fundus, corpus, isthmus) were found. Superficial myometrium demonstrated consistently higher amounts of activator than the endometrial functionalis, but myometrial and endometrial values paralleled one another throughout the intermenstrual ovarian cycle. Highest levels of activator occurred in the late follicular phase and were next highest prior to menses. The apparent lack ...

With regular practice of Self Fertility Massage techniques, your reproductive system will be in better balance and your cycles and ovulation will improve ...
Impaired vascular adaptation in the uterus during early pregnancy contributes to increased risk of pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia, miscarriage and intrauterine growth restriction. The peptide hormone relaxin reaches peak circulating concentrations at the end of the first trimester in pregnant women, and is thought to promote angiogenesis. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of relaxin in uterine vascular adaptations during early pregnancy. We examined the effects of relaxin-deficiency on uterine gene expression in early pregnancy, focusing specifically on angiogenic genes. Quantitative RT-PCR was used to measure gene expression in uterine tissue prior to implantation (days 1-4) in wild type (Rln+/+) and relaxin-deficient mice (Rln-/-). Gene expression was also quantified in the uteri of Rln-/- mice at day 4 of pregnancy after 3 days of relaxin (0.2μg/μl/hour, Alzet® osmotic minipump) or saline (0.9%) treatment. Genes analyzed included angiogenic factors (vascular ...
Introduction: Uterine artery undergoes structural modifications at different physiologic states. It is expected that due to its unique course, hemodynamic stresses in the vessel would vary resulting in differences in arterial dimensions. The objective of this study was to investigate regional morphometric changes in the human uterine artery. Methods: Twenty four uterine arteries (12 each from non-gravid uteri and gravid uteri) were obtained during autopsy after ethical approval from women aged between 21 to 47 years. Sections from proximal, middle and distal segments of the artery taken within 72 hours were processed for paraffin embedding, sectioned and stained with Mason s Trichrome. Micrographs of the slides were analyzed using Scion Image Multiscan software. Data were entered into and analyzed with Statistical Programme for Social Sciences. Results: The pregnancy related increase in diameter and wall thickness are most pronounced in the proximal segment. In the distal segment, however, wall

The uterus * is the hollow, pear-shaped organ in which a baby develops when a woman is pregnant. The cervix * is the lower part of the uterus, which extends into the vagina, the canal that connects to the outside of the body. Uterine and cervical cancers occur when cells in a womans uterus or cervix undergo abnormal changes and start dividing without control or order, forming tumors. Both types of cancer *begin in the uterus, but in different parts. Uterine cancer usually begins in the cells of the endometrium , the thin layer of tissue that lines the inside of the main part of the uterus. That is why it is sometimes called endometrial cancer. Cervical cancer originates in the thin, flat cells on the surface of the cervix, the lower necklike portion of the uterus. Both kinds of cancer are more common in women aged 50 and older, but they can occur at any age. there are some risk factors that are known to increase the risk of developing cervical cancer. These risk factors include:. ...
Lactoferrin expression in the mouse reproductive tract during the natural estrous cycle: correlation with circulating estradiol and progesterone.: Lactoferrin (
The present case is related to post- partum uterine prolapse in a jersey cow which frequently occurs due to a variety of reasons. In this case, the uterine prolapse was observed 2 hrs after delivery showing protrusion of an extensive mass of the uterus with profuse bleeding. On examination, the uterus was swollen and inflamed, with cotyledons and caruncles visible over the uterine mass. The endometrium was washed with KMNO4 (1:1000) followed by application of ice and hypertonic solution to reduce the size of uterus. The uterus was lifted and pushed back into its right position with gentle pushing using fisted hand while holding it in position with the other hand. Tetracycline boli and Metrogyl solution were inserted intra uterine and then sutured to keep the uterus in place. Supportive treatment was instituted for a period of one (1) week.
68 Views , Sep 27, 2019 Authors: Michael Sullivan, Cici Zhu, Fatma Alhadhoud, Sukhbir Sony Singh Affliations: University of Ottawa. Uterine anomalies contribute to impaired fertility, especially pregnancy loss and preterm birth. Dysmorphic uteri is a newly defined class of uterine anomalies characterized by a T-shaped cavity and hypertrophic lateral walls. Pilot studies indicate surgical correction of dysmorphic uteri may improve fertility outcomes.We show three cases of hysteroscopic metroplasty to expand dysmorphic uteri in patients with recurrent pregnancy loss. In two cases, the dysmorphic uteri were initially misdiagnosed as normal on two-dimensional ultrasound, suggesting the anomaly may be underdiagnosed. Relaxing incisions were made along the lateral and anteroposterior walls using a Collins knife. Follow-up hysteroscopic lysis of adhesions were performed as an outpatient. Follow-up three-dimensional ultrasound demonstrated expansion and normalization of the uterine cavity. Dysmorphic ...
Müllerian duct fusion deficiency leads to uterus didelphys. We report the first case of a didelphysunicolis uterus with atretic cervix in a 43-y ear-old unmarried woman with a thirty years history of cyclic lower abdominal pain and primary amenhorrea. On abdomino-pelvic ultrasound examination, a diagnosis of pelvic mass was suspected. On exploratory laparotomy, a didelphys-unicolis uterus with atretic cervix was found. Total abdominal hysterectomy and right salpingectomy were performed. To our knowledge, such a late diagnosed uterine didelphys unicolis with cervical atresia case in a 44 years old unmarried woman with primary amenorrhea has not been previously reported. ...

In this study, we tested whether uteroplacental and fetoplacental disturbances underlie fetal growth restriction and if these changes vary in male and female placentas. Pregnant Sprague-Dawley rats were injected with vehicle (n=16) or testosterone propionate (0.5 mg/kg per day from gestation day 15-19; n=16). On gestation day 20, we quantified uterine artery blood flow using microultrasound, visualized placental ...
BACKGROUND: The pattern of growth of the uterus was examined by ultrasound examinations of 358 girls who attended a paediatric endocrine outpatient department but were shown not to have any endocrine defect. METHOD: The uterus was measured in length and width at the cervix and at the fundus (cm). Endometrial thickness was measured (mm). Scans were divided by Tanner breast stage and the dimensions compared by one way analysis of variance (ANOVA, with the Student Newman Keuls post hoc test). RESULTS: There was an increase in uterine length, diameter of the fundus, and endometrial thickness at each breast stage from 1 to 5 (ANOVA, p , 0.05), and in the diameter of the cervix with each breast stage from 1 to 4 (ANOVA, p , 0.05). The ratio of the fundus to the cervix increased from 0.95 to 1.29 between breast stages 1 and 4. CONCLUSION: The onset of puberty is marked by an increase in the dimensions of the uterus and in endometrial thickness, but also by a change in the shape of the uterus from a ...

Retroversion of the uterus is common and is found to be the normal uterine position in about 20% of all women. Laxness of the supporting pelvic ligaments associated with menopause may cause retroversion in women who previously did not have a retroverted uterus.. Enlargement of the uterus, either as the result of a pregnancy or a tumor, may also change the relative position of the uterus within the pelvis. Pelvic adhesions (scar tissue that forms in the pelvis) resulting from salpingitis, pelvic inflammatory disease, or endometriosis have also been associated with holding the uterus in a retroflexed position.. ...

Until now, surrogacy has been the only option for women with uterine factor infertility (UFI) or conditions that cause the uterus to no longer function.. While Swedish doctors successfully transplanted nine uteruses 3 years ago, the rest of the world has been slow to adapt the procedure.. The Cleveland Clinics chairman of obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Tommaso Falcone, was able to observe and research the uterus transplant process while on a 2013 trip to Sweden. He had read early research about uterus transplants more than 10 years earlier but was skeptical. During his trip 3 years ago he came to understand how much pregnancy meant to couples he spoke to and became determined to make a similar program possible at his Clinic.. In Sweden, the nine transplants, lead to five pregnancies and four births.. Last year the Cleveland Clinic began screening candidates for uterus transplants. The team is currently looking for a total of 10 suitable candidates between the ages 21-39 years that suffer from ...

Uterine incarceration is an obstetrical complication whereby a growing retroverted uterus becomes wedged into the pelvis after the first trimester of pregnancy. A number of situations may interfere with the natural process that would antevert a retroverted uterus during pregnancy. Such situations include pelvic adhesions, endometriosis, uterine malformations, leiomyomata, and pelvic tumors. When the uterus is tilted backwards, it is considered to be retroverted; this situation is common and regarded a normal variation. It has been estimated that about 15% of pregnancies begin in a retroverted uterus. Normally, during the first trimester, the growing uterus changes spontaneously to an anteverted position, thus allowing expansion of the enlarging uterus into the abdomen. The cervix is then inferior to the body of the uterus. Thus, the presence of an early pregnancy in a retroverted uterus is not considered a problem. On rare occasions the uterus fails to become anteverted, and the pregnancy ...

One of the main aims of routine antenatal care is to identify mothers or babies at risk of adverse outcomes. Doppler ultrasound uses sound waves to detect the movement of blood in blood vessels. It is used in pregnancy to study blood circulation in the baby, the mothers uterus and the placenta. If abnormal blood circulation is identified, then it is possible that medical interventions might improve outcomes. We set out to assess the value of using Doppler ultrasound of the mothers uterus or placenta (utero-placental Doppler ultrasound) as a screening tool. Other reviews have looked at the use of Doppler ultrasound on the babies vessels (fetal and umbilical Doppler ultrasound). We also choose to look at women with low-risk and high-risk pregnancies, and in their first or second trimesters. This screening offers a potential for benefit, but also a possibility of unnecessary interventions and adverse effects. The review of randomised controlled trials of routine Doppler ultrasound of the uterus ...

Endometriosis is a condition in which tissues like those which line the uterus are found outside the uterus.These misplaced tissues develop into growths or lesions which respond to the menstrual cycle: each month the tissues build up, break down, and shed. Menstrual blood flows from the uterus and out of the body through the vagina, but the blood and tissue shed from endometrial growths have no way of leaving the body. This results in internal bleeding which can cause pain, infertility, scar tissue formation, adhesions, and bowel problems.
Although this is not a problem in non-pregnant cows, as mentioned before the gravid uterus of pregnant cattle is carrying significantly more weight. When the hind quarters are raised in the air as shown by the illustration above, the gravid uterus is essentially hanging in the abdominal cavity, pushing forwards on the abdominal wall and almost hanging with a vertical axis (instead of a longitudinal axis), which makes it more likely that the uterus will twist due to the vertical angle at which the uterus is hanging, especially if a slip of fall occurs as the cow is getting up. The red line above represents the axis that the uterus will have, compared to the yellow line which is the axis the uterus should have when the cow is lying flat (which is most stable) and the blue circle shows the area in which the uterus is suspended within. So instead of being flat and stable, if the cow is frequently getting up and lying down, there is an increased chance of the uterus twisting. Alternating between ...

Adhesions form as a natural part of the body's healing process after surgery in a similar way that a scar forms. The term "adhesion" is applied when the scar extends from within one tissue across to another, usually across a virtual space such as the peritoneal cavity. Adhesion formation post-surgery typically occurs when two injured surfaces are close to one another. This often causes inflammation and causes fibrin deposits onto the damaged tissues.[2] The fibrin then connects the two adjacent structures where damage of the tissues occurred. The fibrin acts like a glue to seal the injury and builds the fledgling adhesion, said at this point to be "fibrinous." In body cavities such as the peritoneal, pericardial, and synovial cavities, a family of fibrinolytic enzymes may act to limit the extent of the initial fibrinous adhesion, and may even dissolve it. In many cases, the production or activity of these enzymes are compromised because of injury, however, and the fibrinous adhesion persists. If ...

... (BV) is a disease of the vagina caused by excessive growth of bacteria.[6][9] Common symptoms include increased vaginal discharge that often smells like fish.[2] The discharge is usually white or gray in color.[2] Burning with urination may occur.[2] Itching is uncommon.[2][6] Occasionally, there may be no symptoms.[2] Having BV approximately doubles the risk of infection by a number of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS.[8][10] It also increases the risk of early delivery among pregnant women.[3][11] BV is caused by an imbalance of the naturally occurring bacteria in the vagina.[4][5] There is a change in the most common type of bacteria and a hundred to thousandfold increase in total numbers of bacteria present.[6] Typically, bacteria other than Lactobacilli become more common.[12] Risk factors include douching, new or multiple sex partners, antibiotics, and using an intrauterine device, among others.[5] However, it is not considered a sexually transmitted ...

After completion of surgery, the patient is transferred to the post anesthesia care unit and closely monitored. When the patient is judged to have recovered from the anesthesia, he/she is either transferred to a surgical ward elsewhere in the hospital or discharged home. During the post-operative period, the patient's general function is assessed, the outcome of the procedure is assessed, and the surgical site is checked for signs of infection. There are several risk factors associated with postoperative complications, such as immune deficiency and obesity. Obesity has long been considered a risk factor for adverse post-surgical outcomes. It has been linked to many disorders such as obesity hypoventilation syndrome, atelectasis and pulmonary embolism, adverse cardiovascular effects, and wound healing complications.[11] If removable skin closures are used, they are removed after 7 to 10 days post-operatively, or after healing of the incision is well under way.

... s are tumours that arise from granulosa cells. They are esterogen secreting tumors and present as large, complex, ovarian masses. These tumours are part of the sex cord-gonadal stromal tumour or non-epithelial group of tumours. Although granulosa cells normally occur only in the ovary, granulosa cell tumours occur in both ovaries and testicles (see Ovarian cancer and Testicular cancer). These tumours should be considered malignant and treated in the same way as other malignant tumours of ovary. The ovarian disease has two forms, juvenile and adult, both characterized by indolent growth,[1] and therefore has high recovery rates.[2][3] The staging system for these tumours is the same as for epithelial tumours and most present as stage I.[4] The peak age at which they occur is 50-55 years, but they may occur at any age. Juvenile granulosa cell tumour is a similar but distinct rare tumour. It too occurs in both the ovary and testis. In the testis it is extremely rare, and has ...

Vaginal tumors are neoplasms (tumors) found in the vagina. They can be benign or malignant.[1][a] A neoplasm is an abnormal growth of tissue that usually forms a tissue mass.[2][3][4] Vaginal neoplasms may be solid, cystic or of mixed type.[5] Vaginal cancers arise from vaginal tissue, with vaginal sarcomas develop from bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels or other connective or supportive tissue.[6][7] Tumors in the vagina may also be metastases (malignant tissue that has spread to the vagina from other parts of the body). [8][7] Cancer that has spread from the colon, bladder, and stomach is far more common than cancer that originates in the vagina itself.[9] Some benign tumors may later progress to become malignant tumors, such as vaginal cancers.[10][11] Some neoplastic growths of the vagina are sufficiently rare as to be only described in case studies.[3] Signs and symptoms may include a feeling of pressure, painful intercourse or bleeding.[12] Most vaginal tumors are located during a ...

  • After many contractions, the smooth muscle of the myometrium propels the fetus out of the uterus, through the vaginal canal, and through the external vaginal orifice into the outside world. (
  • 1 Upper vaginal duplication is present in 75% of didelphys uterus, but occurs in 25% of the bicornuate and septate uteri in 25% (Figure 3) and rarely with a normal uterus. (
  • A multi uterus trainer with realistic anatomy which can be used for a variety of interventions such as vaginal. (
  • The presence of vaginal bleeding along with uterus thickness in postmenopausal woman, however, could indicate uterus cancer. (
  • While minimal or first-degree uterine prolapse may not cause symptoms, the effects of a second- or third-degree dropped uterus include vaginal fullness, back pain, spotting, ulceration, pain or difficulty during sexual intercourse, and urinary or fecal incontinence or retention. (
  • A ring-like outgrowth of this epithelium occurs at the lower end of the uterus and marks the future vaginal fornix. (
  • While uterine cancer can start anywhere in the uterus, it's most common in the endometrium . (
  • During the menstrual cycle (estrus), the lining of the uterus (endometrium) undergoes changes that permit the implantation of a fertilized egg. (
  • Cancer of the uterus may develop if there are changes in the cells of endometrium during the last few years before the menopause or in the years just after. (
  • The uterus consists of three layers of tissues namely the endometrium or a layer of mucous membrane in the inner part, a layer of muscle fibres called the myometrium and the third and outer layer of connective tissues known as the perimetrium. (
  • Epigee Women's Health says the uterus is made up of three layers: the peritoneum (outer layer), myometrium (middle layer) and endometrium (inner lining). (
  • Atypical endometrial hyperplasia is a precancerous condition that can develop in the lining of the uterus (called the endometrium). (
  • Endometrial biopsy removes small pieces of the lining of the uterus (called the endometrium) so they can be looked at under a microscope. (
  • The innermost layer of the uterus is the endometrium, which lines the inside of the organ and surrounds the hollow lumen of the uterus. (
  • The main function of the uterus is to accept a fertilized ovum which becomes implanted into the endometrium, and derives nourishment from blood vessels which develop exclusively for this purpose. (
  • One of the more likely factors affecting the thickness of the uterus seems to be endometrial hyperplasia , a condition where the endometrium, or lining of the uterus, experiences abnormal growth. (
  • [1] The endometrium is the tissue that lines the uterus. (
  • [2] The endometrium leaves the uterus as the monthly flow of blood ( menstruation ). (
  • The endometrium is the inner epithelial layer, along with its mucous membrane, of the mammalian uterus. (
  • It is the result of hormonal imbalances in menstruation and the shedding of the endometrial lining of the uterus. (
  • The accumulation of the endometrial lining causes inflammation and enlargement of the uterus. (
  • One of the symptoms of endometrial cancer is an enlarged uterus, although it can also be an indicator of advanced stage cancer. (
  • Growths within the uterus can be benign, like fibroids, or they can be malignant, like endometrial cancer. (
  • If uterine fibroids are causing an enlarged uterus, they can be removed through endometrial ablation or a surgical procedure called myomectomy. (
  • It occurs when endometrial tissue begins to grow on the outside of the uterus and on nearby organs. (
  • Endometrial hyperplasia is an increase in the number of cells in the lining of the uterus. (
  • To prevent endometrial hyperplasia from developing into cancer, the doctor may recommend hysterectomy (surgery to remove the uterus) or treatment with hormones ( progesterone ) and regular followup exams. (
  • [ 24 ] The mass typically grows into the endometrial cavity, enlarging the uterus, and less commonly invades the myometrium. (
  • Like adenosarcoma, they grow into the endometrial cavity and enlarge the uterus. (
  • Endometrial scar tissue or adhesions can cause the uterus to stick in a backward position, almost like gluing it in place. (
  • Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the endometrial glands and stroma that line the uterus grows outside of the uterus. (
  • Sometimes polyps that grow in the uterus will have atypical endometrial hyperplasia. (
  • Taking out a major award at the recent European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) conference in Copenhagen, one of the most prestigious meetings in this field, Dr Gargett explained how two types of adult stem cells have been extracted from endometrial tissue in the uterus. (
  • The noncomplex anomalies which can show 2 symmetric endometrial cavities are septate, bicornuate, and didelphys uteri. (
  • Endometrial cancer can grow from cells lining the uterus. (
  • This surgery will involve removing the ovaries and the uterus of the pet, making her sterile. (
  • The uterus sits fairly low in the pelvis, along with the ovaries. (
  • When only the uterus is removed women have 3X more heart disease than intact women, and 7X greater when the ovaries are removed. (
  • Instead, the women will need to undergo in vitro fertilization , in which eggs are removed from their ovaries and fertilized in a lab dish, and implanted in the uterus. (
  • The woman had healthy ovaries but was born without a uterus, a condition that affects about one in 4,500 women. (
  • The uterus sits in the middle of the pelvis, behind the bladder and in front of the rectum. (
  • The uterus is a hollow muscular organ located in the female pelvis between the bladder and rectum. (
  • Before these devices can be inserted, they require that the uterus and cervix be positioned in their usual position in the pelvis. (
  • The uterus is a hollow, pear-shaped organ that sits in the lower part of a woman's pelvis. (
  • The uterus or pelvis can be scarred by conditions, including endometriosis , infection, or previous surgery. (
  • Another theory is that a tilted uterus causes venous congestion in the pelvis, meaning the veins in the reproductive organs dilate and fill with blood. (
  • Scar tissue or adhesions in the pelvis can also hold the uterus in a retroverted position. (
  • Pelvis and uterus. (
  • The uterus, along with other organs of the pelvis, is normally supported by layers of pelvic floor muscles which are slung like a hammock from the public bone to the tailbone from front to back and also from side to side across the bottom of the pelvis. (
  • A retroverted uterus is the name given to a uterus that is tilted backwards inside of the pelvis. (
  • This will cause your uterus to lift out of the pelvis and no longer tip backward. (
  • Sometimes this is caused by adhesions that keep the uterus anchored into the pelvis. (
  • The uterus is located inside the pelvis immediately dorsal (and usually somewhat rostral) to the urinary bladder and ventral to the rectum. (
  • Fibroids are benign tumors that grow within the uterus and cause heavy bleeding during normal menstrual periods and a sense of fullness within your pelvis. (
  • The uterus is held in position within the pelvis by ligaments, which are part of the endopelvic fascia. (
  • Surrounding the uterus is a layer or band of fibrous and fatty connective tissue called the parametrium that connects the uterus to other tissues of the pelvis. (
  • Under normal circumstances the suspensory part keeps the uterus in anteflexion and anteversion (in 90% of women) and keeps it "floating" in the pelvis. (
  • The portion of the uterus between the corpus and the cervix is called the isthmus. (
  • The uterus can be divided anatomically into four regions: the fundus - the uppermost rounded portion of the uterus, the corpus (body), the cervix, and the cervical canal. (
  • Prolapse may occur when the pelvic support system, the muscles and ligaments that normally hold the uterus in place, become stretched or slack, most often due to a long or difficult childbirth or multiple childbirths. (
  • If the prolapse is due to disease or swelling, the underlying cause or disorder must first be controlled or eliminated before the uterus can be returned to its original position and secured there. (
  • Prolapsed uterus (also called uterine prolapse) is a common condition that can affect a woman's physical and sexual activity as well as her quality of life. (
  • With a uterine prolapse, these muscles, as well as ligaments and other pelvic tissues, don't provide their normal support, and the uterus may push downwards. (
  • Treatment for prolapsed uterus will depend on your symptoms and the degree of prolapse. (
  • A prolapse uterus occurs mostly in pregnant female dogs. (
  • The need for treating a dropped uterus is usually dependent on the degree of prolapse. (
  • For the mammalian bicornuate uterus and other forms, see Uterus . (
  • A bicornuate uterus or bicornate uterus (from the Latin cornū , meaning "horn"), is a type of Mullerian anomaly in the human uterus , where there is a deep indentation at the fundus (top) of the uterus. (
  • A bicornuate uterus develops during embryogenesis . (
  • Transvaginal ultrasonography showing a cross-section of a bicornuate uterus, with two cavities (or "horns") to the left and right, respectively. (
  • Diagnosis of bicornuate uterus typically involves imaging of the uterus with 2D or 3D ultrasound , hysterosalpingography , or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). (
  • On imaging, a bicornuate uterus can be distinguished from a septate uterus by the angle between the cornua (intercornual angle): less than 75 degrees in a septate uterus, and greater than 105 degrees in a bicornuate uterus. (
  • a cleft of over 1 centimetre (0.39 in) is indicative of bicornuate uterus. (
  • Bicornuate uterus is typically classified based on whether or not the division extends to the external cervical os. (
  • An obstructed bicornuate uterus showing uni or bilateral obstruction might also be possible. (
  • Bicornuate uterus typically requires no treatment. (
  • [7] A bicornuate uterus is estimated to occur in 0.1-0.5% of women in the U.S. It is possible that this figure is an underestimate, since subtle abnormalities often go undetected. (
  • Fetuses developing in bicornuate uteri are more likely to present breech or transverse , with the fetal head in one horn and the feet in the other. (
  • Usage of intrauterine device (IUD) with copper requires one IUD in each horn to be effective in case of bicornuate uterus. (
  • With a bicornuate uterus you may have more scans than you would otherwise and a consultant will talk to you about your preferred method of delivery. (
  • What is a bicornuate uterus? (
  • Another condition of the uterus is a bicornuate uterus, where it is shaped like a heart. (
  • Twin gestation in a case of bicornuate uterus is extremely rare. (
  • Three-dimensional ultrasound revealed bicornuate uterus with one embryo in each cavity. (
  • Because of the rare occurrence of twin gestation in bicornuate uterus, there is no uniform guideline to manage these cases appropriately. (
  • Subsequent 3D ultrasound exam by Philips HD 11 SE which equipped 3D8-4 convex probe (Philips, Milwaukee, USA) revealed one twin in each uterine cavity (Figures 1 and 2 ) and that the uterus was bicornuate (Figures 1 and 2 ). (
  • Two embryos were located in separate cavities of the bicornuate uterus. (
  • Bicornuate uterus results from incomplete fusion of 2 uterine horns (Müllerian tubes) leading to varying degrees of separation between the cavities. (
  • Müllerian duct anomalies in women include lack of development (hypoplasia, aplasia, or unicornuate uterus), lack of midline fusion (didelphys or bicornuate uterus), and incomplete resorption of midline tissue during fusion (septate and arcuate uteri). (
  • Distinction between a septate uterus and either the didelphys or bicornuate uterus is important if infertility warrants surgical repair. (
  • Distinguishing a didelphys or bicornuate uterus from a septate uterus is critical. (
  • In a bicornuate uterus, a normal muscular septum can extend to the internal os (partial or bicornuate unicollis) or close to the external os (complete or bicornuate bicollis). (
  • A didelphys and bicornuate uterus represent a continuum of fusion. (
  • A didelphys and an extreme bicornuate uterus with near complete lack of fusion may be difficult to distinguish, but is of low importance clinically. (
  • Septal resorption may be arrested at any point, resulting in variable lengths of septum in the septate uterus 2 and infrequently in the bicornuate uterus. (
  • The myometrium in a partial bicornuate uterus may extend to the lower uterine segment with communication between the 2 cavities at that level (and thus defining it as a bicornuate uterus). (
  • A normal contour excludes a didelphys or bicornuate and the uterus is either normal or septate. (
  • A unicornuate uterus with a communicating rudimentary horn have asymmetrically sized horns unlike a bicornuate uterus. (
  • The fundus is the upper part of the uterus. (
  • The domed, superior region is known as the fundus and forms the roof of the uterus. (
  • From outside to inside, regions of the uterus include: Cervix uteri - "neck of uterus" External orifice of the uterus Cervical canal Internal orifice of the uterus Body (Latin: Corpus) Uterine cavity Fundus The uterus has three layers, which together form the uterine wall. (
  • According to the Mayo Clinic, a bulky uterus, scientifically known as "adenomyosis," occurs when the tissue that typically lines the uterus grows instead into the muscular wall of the uterus. (
  • Often, cervical duplication occurs along with a double uterus. (
  • Adenomyosis occurs when the inner most lining of the uterus abnormally grows out into the out most portion. (
  • Why would a woman's uterus become enlarged? (
  • A woman's uterus can be enlarged for a variety of reasons. (
  • While adult stems cells have been found in other parts of the body, no-one has ever identified them in the uterus before," said Dr Gargett, a senior scientist in the Centre for Women's Health Research at MIMR. (
  • The uterus is the female internal reproductive organ that has two primary functions. (
  • The uterus is an organ of the female reproductive system. (
  • The uterus, shown above as the pear shaped organ, usually tilts forward. (
  • The one that forms the bulk of the organ is the uppermost part of the body of the uterus. (
  • The uterus is an organ that supports the fetuses when the dog is pregnant. (
  • Using RNA (Northern) blot hybridization and reverse transcription-PCR, we demonstrate that the brain-type cannabinoid receptor (CB1-R) mRNA, but not the spleen-type cannabinoid receptor (CB2-R) mRNA, is expressed in the mouse uterus and that this organ has the capacity to synthesize the putative endogenous cannabinoid ligand, anandamide (arachidonylethanolamide). (
  • At only 3 inches long and weighing about 60 grams, the uterus isn't a flashy, attention-grabbing organ. (
  • According to Jennifer Berman, M.D. and Laura Berman, Ph.D, in For Women Only: A Revolutionary Guide to Overcoming Sexual Dysfunction and Reclaiming Your Sex Life, the uterus is a hollow and very muscular organ. (
  • The uterus is much more than a baby bag, it is a hormone responsive sex organ that supports the bladder and the bowel. (
  • The uterus is now recognized as an extremely complex organ whose nor- mal function is orchestrated by a delicate procession of cellular and molecular events that investigators are beginning to unravel for the first time. (
  • They were also asked specifically about her uterus, since it's a new organ in this context. (
  • The corpus of the uterus can be divided into three distinct tissue layers, with each layer performing a specific function within the organ. (
  • In the human embryo, the uterus develops from the paramesonephric ducts which fuse into the single organ known as a simplex uterus. (
  • External fundal depressions of variable depths associated with a septate uterus can be seen by laparoscopy, indicating the coexistence of the two anomalies. (
  • Septate uterus. (
  • They did an ultrasound while I was there where he told me that my uterus is septate. (
  • I have had a laproscopy done during my second surgery and my doctor told me I have no lining in my uterus but nothing about it being septate. (
  • The septum in a septate uterus has abnormal vascularization and mechanics. (
  • A septate uterus has undergone complete fusion. (
  • The septate uterus contains a ridge of tissue that protrudes into the uterine cavity. (
  • In a septate uterus the inside is the shape of a heart rather than the normal triangle. (
  • Donors undergo a five-hour operation that is more complex and takes out more tissue than a standard hysterectomy to remove the uterus. (
  • Hysterectomy - Surgical removal of uterus. (
  • A hysterectomy is a procedure that surgically removes the uterus, explains WebMD. (
  • The new study will involve women with a condition called uterine factor infertility, which means they cannot become pregnant either because they were born without a uterus, or their uterus was removed by hysterectomy, or it was damaged by an injury or infection so that it no longer functions, according to the Cleveland Clinic. (
  • some surgeons believe that since the uterus is basically healthy, hysterectomy is never justified. (
  • Removing the uterus is called a hysterectomy . (
  • Disadvantages include surgery for the uterus donor and recipient, and a lifetime of anti-rejection drugs. (
  • The uterus came from a deceased donor. (
  • In a statement Thursday, the Cleveland Clinic said the nine-hour surgery was performed a day earlier on a 26-year-old woman, using a uterus from a deceased donor. (
  • The uterus can be removed from a deceased donor much faster. (
  • The doctors who are conducting the study will not begin the search for a uterus donor for a woman until she has undergone IVF, and has frozen embryos. (
  • The Swedish team responsible for uterine transplantation research has, for the first time, transplanted a uterus from a deceased donor. (
  • To date, three babies in the world have been born after transplantation of the uterus of a deceased donor: one in Brazil, followed by two in the U.S. The first such birth in Sweden may take place in 2021 at the earliest. (
  • The Swedish woman, aged 36, had received a uterus in 2013, from a live 61-year-old donor, in an operation led by Dr. Brännström, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of Gothenburg. (
  • Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that take origin from the myometrium and the neighboring tissue of the uterus. (
  • The myometrium contracts during the birth process and forces the fetus out of the uterus into the birth canal. (
  • Deep to the perimetrium is the myometrium, or muscular layer of the uterus. (
  • The uterus mostly consists of smooth muscle, known as "myometrium. (
  • They are divided on (1) substances, strengthening of uterus rhythmic contractions, (2) substances, lowering tonus of cervix uteri, (3) substances, increasing tonus of myometrium, and (4) substances, weakening uterus contractions. (
  • Uterine didelphys is complete uterine nonfusion with 2 uteri and 2 cervices separated by a normal myometrium. (

  • The main function of the body of the uterus is to expand to accommodate the growing foetus. (
  • A short segment exists between the body of the uterus and the cervix. (
  • Compared to the cervix, the body of the uterus is much larger and plays an important role in the development of the fetus and delivery of the fetus during childbirth. (
  • It is shaped like an inverted pear, with the body of the uterus forming the wide, superior region and the cervix of the uterus forming the narrow, inferior region. (
  • Several distinct regions make up the body of the uterus. (
  • The body of the uterus also plays a vital role in the process of childbirth. (
  • Each contraction begins to push the fetus slowly out of the body of the uterus and into the cervix, which has been widening and opening under the influence of the same hormones. (
  • Furthermore, the long axis of the body of the uterus is bent forward at the level of the internal os with the long axis of the cervix. (
  • It results in the lining of the uterus becoming embedded directly in the muscle wall of the uterus. (
  • The first puppy in either the right or left horn of the uterus is lifted into the birth canal and then detaches from the wall of the uterus. (
  • This is where the walls of the uterus begin to narrow toward the cervix. (

  • In For Women Only, the Bermans write, the walls of the uterus normally touch each other, but are pushed apart by a growing fetus. (
  • About the fifth month a ring-like constriction marks the position of the cervix of the uterus, and after the sixth month the walls of the uterus begin to thicken. (
  • Serous fluid secreted by perimetrium lubricates the surface of the uterus and prevents friction between the internal organs. (

  • [18] Surgery to remove the uterus may need to be done after having a baby. (
  • In the term uterus, oxytocin increases the amplitude and frequency of uterine contractions, which in turn tend to decrease cervical activity producing dilation and effacement of the cervix and to transiently impede uterine blood flow. (

  • [10] Other tumors can grow in the uterus that are not cancer. (
  • Woman With Transplanted Uterus Gives Birth, the First in the U.S. (
  • If a woman is not pregnant, this lining is not needed, so it separates from the uterus and leaves the body as the menstrual flow during the menstrual period. (
  • Because the patient ultimately needed for the uterus to be removed after just 99 days, due to necrosis, whether or not the case is considered successful is disputed, but the uterus did function for a time, with the patient experiencing two menstrual cycles. (
  • The main function of the uterus is to nourish the developing fetus prior to birth. (
  • The uterus is very thick-walled and quite elastic, as is demonstrated by its ability to expand enough to hold a growing fetus, then return to approximately its prior size after the birth of the baby. (
  • But by 105 million years ago, placental mammals had evolved elaborate uteruses that allowed for invasive placentas, maternal tolerance of the fetus, and long gestation periods. (
  • Many of these genes related to maternal-fetal communication, and especially the suppression of the maternal immune system in the uterus so it didn't reject the developing fetus. (
  • It is within the uterus that the fetus develops during gestation. (
  • Cross-section of human uterus. (
  • The human uterus is pear-shaped and about 7.6 cm (3.0 in) long, 4.5 cm (1.8 in) broad (side to side), and 3.0 cm (1.2 in) thick. (
  • Vertical section of mucous membrane of human uterus. (
  • A didelphic or double uterus results from failure of the two Mullerian ducts to fuse. (
  • This obviously does not help the population numbers of the species, as the double uterus animal can only have two children per birth. (
  • Having children is the completion of becoming a successful woman that is why it is important for almost everyone to have a healthy uterus. (
