Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The first cases of pregnancies obtained in vivo in animals after implantation of a Teflon artificial fallopian tube model are presented. The Teflon prosthesis was implanted into the uterine cornua of rabbits and fixed subcutaneously in the abdominal wall. Five to eight blastocysts obtained from donor rabbits were transferred through the tubing into each recipient animal's uterus 2 to 14 days after placement of the device. On posttransfer day 10, normally developed pregnancies were visible and confirmed histologically in 4 of 7 animals.
