Abstract

Objective:

To report a live birth after in vitro maturation (IVM) of oocytes retrieved from extracorporeal ovarian tissue aspiration in the setting of fertility preservation.

Design:

Observational study.

Setting:

Academic center.

Patient(s):

A 23-year-old woman.

Intervention(s):

IVM from extracorporeal ovarian tissue aspiration.

Main Outcome Measure(s):

Live birth after IVM.

Result(s):

A 23-year-old woman conceived with embryos derived from extracorporeal oocyte aspiration followed by IVM, embryo freezing, and frozen embryo transfer.

Conclusion(s):

A healthy live birth from extracorporeal aspiration of immature oocytes, IVM, and a frozen embryo transfer after 5 years was documented. Consideration of this technique should be made as a primary or adjunct intervention in the setting of fertility preservation.
