ovarian cortex

ovarian cortex

[TA]
the layer of the ovarian stroma lying immediately beneath the tunica albuginea, composed of connective tissue cells and fibers, among which are scattered primary and secondary (antral) follicles in various stages of development; the cortex varies in thickness according to the age of the individual, becoming thinner with advancing years.
Synonym(s): cortex ovarii [TA], cortex of ovary

For each group, all parameters (including ovarian cortex thickness, maximum longitudinal diameter, maximum transversal diameter, levels of ER[beta] and FSHR, serum [E.sub.2], and FSH) were calculated based on the data of 5 mice in each subgroup.
Ovarian tissue cryopreservation (OTC) is an experimental fertility preservation method in which the ovarian cortex, which contains a lot of primordial follicles, is removed surgically and then cryopreserved.
Blunt and sharp dissection helped to find a cleavage plane between the cyst wall and the ovarian cortex. The entire tumor was removed using an endobag to avoid tumor spillage.
It is hypothesised that non-target embolisation causes hypoxia to the ovarian cortex, resulting in loss of AMH-secreting small antral and pre-antral follicles that are sensitive to reduced tissue oxygen tension.[17] This is likely the case in women with utero-ovarian anastomosis, since embolic material has been recovered from ovarian biopsy following UAE.
These treatments are based on a proprietary technology platform that leverages the breakthrough discovery of egg precursor cells immature egg cells found within the outer ovarian cortex. In March 2018, the company announced preliminary blinded data for its Phase 1 trial of OvaPrime for women with primary ovarian insufficiency and poor ovarian response.

Brown: Current standard of care is cystectomy, stripping the cyst wall away from the ovarian cortex. There is some concern that the stripping process, depending on how long the endometrioma has been present within the ovary, can cause some destruction to the underlying oocytes and perhaps impact that ovary's ability to produce viable eggs.
Cryopreservation of Ovarian Tissue Cryopreservation of ovarian tissue is a technique of freezing the ovarian cortex, which is rich in primordial follicles.
Pathology was positive for a massive hemorrhagic infarction of the ovarian cortex.
