A 27-year-old female patient from Kayseri, who was born without genitals, learned that she did not have a uterus after a traffic accident. A genital organ was made to the patient using a closed method through the inner abdominal membrane.
In Kayseri, a 27-year-old woman named GY learned that she did not have a uterus and had no sexual organs at birth, after a traffic accident. In a gynecological oncology surgery performed at Kayseri City Hospital, a sexual organ was made for GY through a closed method through the inner abdominal membrane.
GY stated that his disease is a rare and unknown type and treatment options are limited. He regained his health after the surgery and advised others not to hesitate to go to the doctor and get treatment.
“IT IS VERY RARE”
Assoc. Dr. Seda Şahin Aker said that congenital gender development disorders are very rare. She explained that patients usually apply to the hospital because they do not menstruate during adolescence, and the diagnosis is made during this period. She stated that the patients do not have a uterus and have congenital problems with their vaginas.
Explaining that there are different treatment methods for such conditions, Aker said that the patients do not have a uterus and their vaginas are limited. He stated that the surgery they performed at Kayseri City Hospital was more convenient in terms of patient acceptance and had a lower risk of complications.
Aker emphasized that such surgeries can generally be performed with intestinal or other tissue transplants, but these methods carry some risks and surgery with the patients’ own tissues is more advantageous.
