"The first U.S. woman to receive a transplanted uterus has had the implanted organ removed due to an unnamed "sudden complication," her doctors at the Cleveland Clinic announced Wednesday.
"At this time, the circumstance of the complication is under review and more information will be shared as it becomes available," the hospital said in a statement.
"There is a known risk in solid organ transplantation that the transplanted organ may have to be removed should a complication arise," the clinic added. "The medical team took all necessary precautions and measures to ensure the safety of our patient."
