Abstract

Ovarian cryopreservation and autotransplantation could be of potential value for preservation of fertility in the patients with various malignancies. Ovarian tissue should be cryopreserved actively for fertility preservation, but stored tissue should be autotransplanted with much caution until reliable methods are established to detect minimal residual disease in grafts in precise and reproducible manners.
