Fertility preservation in women submitted to ovarian cystectomy. Long term effectiveness of cryopreservation of ovarian tissue in women with increase of reduced ovarian reserve after treatment

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Various malignant and nonmalignant ovarian diseases have been successfully treated with surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Even though many young patients receiving these treatments are at risk of developing reproductive failure. A number of fertility preservation options ranging from embryo and oocytes cryopreservation, to ovarian tissue cryopreservation are now available. Embryo cryopreservation is a well established technique to preserve fertility. The success rate with oocyte cryopreservation has been on the rise. Both oocyte and embryo freezing require ovarian stimulation and novel ovarian stimulation regimens utilizing aromatase inhibitors which have been developed for ovarian stimulation in women with estrogen sensitive cancer. Even though ovarian tissue cryopreservation is a novel technology, it is the only fertility preservation option for younger women avoiding ovarian stimulation.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
