- •The results highlight the importance of exact evaluation of post-ovarian transplant.
- •The benefit of the CAM culture is tissue viability confirmation after warming.
- •The first sign of successful ovarian transplantation can be observed on day 3.
- •Vitrified tissues showed higher viability and transplantation rate vs slow freezing.
- •Vitrification can be considered as a reliable alternative for slow freezing.
