Transplantation surgery, which is limited by the supply and short-term viability of fresh donor organs, would be revolutionized if these could survive freezing, but early claims of cryopreservation were never realized. Here we describe the successful transplantation in rats of ovaries, fallopian tubes and the upper segment of the uterus en bloc after storage in liquid nitrogen.
