Healthy twins after womb operation

A 27-YEAR-OLD woman born with two deformed wombs has delivered a pair of twins thanks to a successful operation.

Cui Dandan had suffered serious period pain since puberty, but the fact she had two deformed wombs was only detected when she got married three years ago and was unable to become pregnant. 

Doctors cut the right fallopian tube connected to the smaller womb to prevent an ectopic pregnancy, but nothing changed for Cui.

Obstetrics & Gynecology Hospital of Fudan University then carried out a challenging procedure to combine the two wombs.

“We used minimally invasive measures to reduce damage to the womb,” said Dr Hua Keqin, the leader doctor.

Cui became pregnant following in vitro fertilization at the hospital two years after the surgery.

“About 80 percent of patients with reconstructed wombs suffer miscarriages or premature delivery,” Hua cautioned.

However, Cui successfully delivered a pair of twins after a 35-week pregnancy.
