FERTILITY PRESERVATION (FP) IN THE MEDICALLY COMPLEX: A PROOF-OF-CONCEPT MODEL FOR OOCYTE RETRIEVAL REMOTE FROM THE EMBRYOLOGY LABORATORY Medical illness prompting fertility preservation can preclude the safe completion of ovarian stimulation and oocyte retrieval. At our center, medically complex patients undergo oocyte retrieval in the hospital-based central operating room (OR) rather than in the fertility center (FC) procedure room...
THE UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE OF MEDICAL TRAINING: DELAYED CHILDBEARING. A SURVEY OF REPRODUCTIVE GOALS AND FERTILITY KNOWLEDGE IN MEDICAL RESIDENTS To assess reproductive goals and baseline fertility knowledge in residents and fellows across various specialties in a university teaching hospital.
CHARACTERISTICS OF FOLLICULAR FLUID IN THE TALES RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL Prior literature has suggested that follicular fluid hormonal milieu may affect oocyte yield/quality. In this secondary analysis of the TAmoxifen or Letrozole in Estrogen Sensitive tumors (TALES) trial, we aimed to investigate if concurrent administration of letrozole vs tamoxifen vs no added...
SEMEN PARAMETERS IN TESTICULAR CANCER PATIENTS BEFORE ORCHIECTOMY To characterize the association of testicular cancer composite stage and histology with semen parameters in pre-orchiectomy cryopreservation samples.
DEVELOPMENT, USER-CENTERED DESIGN, AND IMPLEMENTATION MAPPING OF CRISP, AN ONLINE CANCER-RELATED INFERTILITY RISK TOOL FOR FEMALE CANCER SURVIVORS Young female cancer survivors are at increased risk of infertility and adverse pregnancy outcomes, yet reproductive counseling uptake is low in this patient population. Gaps in provider knowledge on infertility risks of cancer treatments also lead to variable quality of counseling, and estimation...
ONCOLOGIC FERTILITY PRESERVATION: PREDICTORS OF PATIENT TREATMENT CHOICE To compare characteristics of women who decided to pursue or forego fertility preservation prior to cancer treatment.
DOES OOCYTE VITRIFICATION-WARMING IMPACT BLASTOCYST ANEUPLOIDY RATES? There is emerging research quantifying the effect of vitrification on oocyte integrity and IVF outcomes. Oocyte vitrification-warming has been proposed to cause meiotic spindle disruption leading to altered chromatin structure. Previous research concluded a neutral impact of oocyte cryopreservation...
AUTOLOGOUS CRYOPRESERVED OVARIAN TISSUE TRANSPLANTATION (ACOTT): AN UPDATE FROM OUR PREVIOUS META-ANALYTICAL DATASET AS OF MARCH 2021 Ovarian cryopreservation followed by auto-transplantation has recently been removed from the experimental category for fertility preservation (FP) by the ASRM. However, the current success rates of this FP approach are unknown. Therefore, we sought to perform a meta-analysis with the use of...
NOVEL CASE OF TRANSVAGINAL OOCYTE RETRIEVAL FOLLOWING OVARIAN TRANSPOSITION AND REVERSAL IN A PATIENT WITH RECURRENT RECTAL CANCER Ovarian transposition is a common procedure for reproductive age women prior to pelvic radiation. For women who seek in vitro fertilization following ovarian transposition, abdominal retrieval is required for egg retrieval. However, many reported cases utilizing abdominal retrieval for fertility...
BARRIERS TO FERTILITY PRESERVATION IN REPRODUCTIVE AGE BREAST CANCER PATIENTS To identify barriers to fertility preservation (FP) in newly diagnosed breast cancer patients who answered yes to the screening question “Have you ever had a desire to become a parent” and to compare demographic characteristics between patients who received and did not receive FP counseling.
