Cytotoxic therapy in young women with cancer may cause loss of ovarian function, and ovarian cryopreservation has been proposed as a means of preserving fertility. The objective of this study is to assess ultrastructural preservation of follicles in frozen-thawed ovarian cortical strips, previously cryopreserved using dimethylsulfoxide and a standard slow-cool/rapid-thaw protocol. Ovarian cortical strips (patients, n=7) were thawed and fixed in glutaraldehyde for epoxy resin embedding electron… CONTINUE READING
