Half an ovary or a whole ovary can be removed laparoscopically for tissue cryopreservation. As a rule, removal of half an ovary is enough. The removal of a whole ovary is only recommended for children, in case of pelvic radiotherapy or stem cell transplantation. It is advisable to exclude metastases in a small piece of tissue to determine the follicle density and to measure the serum AMH concentration before removal. Cryopreservation of ovarian tissue is particularly suitable if less than 2 weeks are available for a fertility preservation method to be carried out, if the patient is younger than 35 years of age or if chemotherapy has already been started. The ovarian tissue can be transferred to a specialized cryobank at 4 °C overnight for cryopreservation.
