A 101 year old Anatolia Vertadella has given birth to a 9 pound baby after a disputable ovary transplant extensively criticized by medical experts because she was very old.
The whole procedure was made in Turkey in a private clinic and was illegal (in Turkey the European laws on ovary transplant don’t apply).
Anatolia admitted in tears: “I’m very thankful to all the team of doctors who decided to go on with the operation.” I am so thankful for my 17th kid. This is a real blessing,” she added.
Dr. Popolicchi believes the last decision was left to the patient despite of the fact that the whole procedure was illegal.
