Ovarian Cortex Freezing

For young women with certain types of cancer (breast, lymphomas, etc.), chemotherapy is required which is detrimental for ovarian functions. If these women desire future pregnancy part of the ovaries should be removed and frozen. This is done laparoscopically. Outer layer of the ovary contains numerous eggs which can be frozen and used for ICSI treatment in the future.

This new technique seems very promising.
