Ethical Issues With Uterus Transplantation Same As In Altruistic Surrogacy (VIDEO)

Uterus transplantation and altruistic surrogacy face the same ethical issues

Press Release

The first child to be conceived and gestated inside a donated uterus was born in 2014. Ten other children have been birthed in transplanted uteruses since then. Eight of these were born in Sweden, prompting further research projects into the sustainability of uterus transplantation. But this medical feat is not without its inherent problems, at least in the ethical sense.

Researchers from Linköping University found that the problems associated with uterus transplantation are more ethical than medical. And they found that ethical issues connected with donated uteruses are as problematic as ethical issues connected with altruistic surrogacy – especially since these involve living donors.

Lisa Guntram, researcher at Linköping University, revealed that the study was not to establish the medical possibilities of uterus transplantation. But to get people to be conscious of its parallels with altruistic surrogacy, especially where ethics are concerned. Guntram with Nicola Jane Williams from Lancaster University in the UK published their findings in the journal Bioethics.

A 2016 Swedish white paper advocated that altruistic surrogacy must not be allowed in the Swedish primary healthcare system. Reviewing the arguments put forward in the paper, Guntram opined that the Swedish people could be more open to uterus transplantation than they are to altruistic surrogacy. Uterus transplantation and altruistic surrogacy are both solutions to childlessness.

But they are both confronted with the following arguments among others:

  • Whether the donors were not pressurized to offer their help

Relatives and elderly mothers were often the donors of uteruses in Sweden. It is argued that mothers and relatives of childless women may have been forced to donate their uteruses by circumstances one way or the other. Surrogate mothers were also believed to have faced some level of external pressure before they agree to intervene on behalf of the childless couple. This constitutes an ethical issue.

  • Whether donors do it for monetary benefits in what could blosom into an organ trade

Where surrogacy is concerned, there are underlying fears that surrogate mothers may have accepted monetary compensations to help. There is also the fear that if people are paid to donate their uterus, black market for organ trade could soon develop where kidneys and lungs among other internal organs are sold for transplantation. This is not to mention the fact that both surrogacy and uterus transplantation could constitute an exploitation of women’s bodies.

  • Whether there are enough physical and psychological protections for children born from such interventions

Since only ten or so children have been born from uterus transplantation, little is known of the consequences of such birth on development. The same is true with altruistic surrogacy. So further research is required to understand the effects of such birth on children born that way.

Finally, the authors of the study conclude that uterus transplantation and altruistic surrogacy face almost the same ethical issues in Sweden and possibly anywhere else.

Surgical Sutures Market In-Depth Analysis of Industry Share, Size, Growth Outlook up to 2030



surgical sutures market
Press Release

Market Industry Reports (MIR) has published a new report titled “Surgical Sutures Market– Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2019–2030.” According to the report, the global Surgical Sutures Market was estimated to account for US$ 3,987.4 Mn in 2018. It is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2019 to 2030.

Request For [email protected]

The significant growth of the surgical sutures market can be attributed to increasing number of surgical procedures, growing geriatric population, and favorable reimbursement scenario. In U.S., surgeons perform approximately 64 million surgical procedures, ranging from tooth extraction to open heart surgery every year. Furthermore, according to statistics, in 2014, the number of cardiovascular surgeries in North America was 377,763 and are estimated to increase up to 461,046 by 2021. Thus, these factors contribute to the growth of the market.

Prominent Players in the market
The prominent players in the surgical suture market are B. Braun Melsungen AG, Medtronic ,Ethicon LLC, Zimmer Biomet, Teleflex Incorporated, Conmed Corporation, Peters Surgical, Internacional Farmacéutica S.A. de C.V. (Atramat), EndoEvolution, LLC, DemeTECH Corporation

Other factors such as encouraging government regulations and promising reimbursement situation for a number of surgical procedures, intensifying healthcare expenditure, increasing number of hospitals and growing healthcare demand in developing countries are fueling the growth of the surgical suture market. Sutures are a common element of the wound closure performed immediately after a surgical procedure. The American Medical Association (AMA) and Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), consider suture removal to be an integral part of any procedure that includes suture placement, and needs no reporting of separate CPT code in most of the surgical procedures.

The factors which are hindering the market growth are presence of alternative wound care management products such as surgical staples, surgical adhesives or glues, surgical zippers; growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries, and risks associated with surgical sutures. Moreover, adoption of minimally invasive surgeries has gained widespread clinical acceptance due to their advantages over open surgeries. This growing adoption of minimally invasive surgeries has been fuelled by factors such as benefits of faster recovery, with less pain and fewer complications. Along with it, surgical suture materials have a slight tendency of tissue reactions or infections, thus affecting the market growth.

Asia Pacific is estimated to grow at fastest CAGR in surgical sutures market over the forecast period. This growth is attributed to increasing number of hospitals, better healthcare policies, growing geriatric population and rising healthcare awareness in low and middle income countries such as India, China, and others. In addition to this, low cost of treatment, increasing incidence of lifestyle-related diseases, growing medical tourism, rising awareness and increasing disposable income are positively impacting the growth of the market in these countries. People in developing countries are unable to afford the costly wound care products and treatment such as surgical staples devices, surgical zippers and surgical adhesive or glue and minimally invasive surgery treatments therefore they prefer cost effective and easily available surgical interventions that require sutures. As a result, the surgical suture market is likely to expand in this region during the forecast period.
