Iatrogenic ovarian failure and infertility are long term-term side effects of anticancerous gonadotoxic treatments in children or women of reproductive year. Ovarian cortex cryopreservation can be a solution to preserve immature germinal cells before gonadotoxic treatment, for later transplantation. The aim of our study was to prove the efficiency of a laparoscopic technique for orthotopic graft after a slow-freezing/thawing protocol, and to evaluate the effect of ovarian cryopreservation and… CONTINUE READING
