The Cleveland Clinic [wikipedia.org], in Cleveland, Ohio, has embarked upon a programme [nytimes.com] of uterine transplantation [wikipedia.org], with surgeries planned on a total of ten patients. The first recipient, however, has suffered an unspecified "sudden complication" and the transplanted uterus, which was obtained from a cadaver, has been removed.

The first uterine transplant, which was unsuccessful [wikipedia.org], was performed in 1931. This was the first time the procedure had been attempted in the United States, where it is still considered experimental.
