The cryopreservation of immature oocytes permits oocyte banking for patients at risk of losing their fertility. However, the optimum protocol for such fertility preservation remains uncertain. The present study investigated the survival, maturation, cytoskeletal and chromosome organization of sibling immature oocytes leftover from controlled ovarian stimulation cycles, that were either slow-frozen (with choline-substitution) or vitrified. A comparison group included oocytes that were never… CONTINUE READING
