Whole Ovarian Vitrification: A Viable Option for Fertility Preservation?

Author(s): Bruno Salle, Jacqueline Lornage.

Abstract:

Ovarian transplantation may be the future of fertility preservation. Although ovarian fragments graft is known to restore fertility, but a large number of primordial follicles are lost during the neo vacularisation period and the life span of the transplant is usually short. Whole ovary transplantation may restore ovarian function immediately and during long time. Nevertheless results of whole transplantation are still disappointing. Only one gestation in animal had been reported.
