Abstract

BACKGROUND: Fertility preservation has become a standard of care in reproductive-age oncology patients. However, research has demonstrated that the knowledge of the provider and referral practice patterns remain suboptimal. Fertility preservation should be discussed with oncology patients of reproductive age, with the full knowledge of the individual. A combined medical and surgical approach may further ensure their reproductive successes in the future.

CASE: A 38-year-old, nulliparous woman with colorectal cancer desired fertility preservation prior to cancer therapy. She underwent a laparoscopic ovarian transposition using a novel percutaneous suturing technique after emergent ovarian stimulation, followed by oocyte retrieval and cryopreservation. One year after chemotherapy and pelvic radiation the patient resumed regular menstrual cycles.

CONCLUSION: A combined approach using emergent oocyte cryopreservation and a novel laparoscopic ovarian transposition is an optimal fertility preservation strategy in women with colorectal cancer. Fertility preservation success is dependent upon a multidisciplinary approach of well-informed medical teams consisting of an oncologist, a surgeon, a radiation oncologist, and a reproductive specialist.
