In Reply: Our technique was developed to transplant subcutaneously ovarian cortical strips in the forearm without vascular anastomosis. The concept originated from the technique of parathyroid gland transplantation,1 and from adaptation of orthotopic ovarian transplantation technique.2 Ovarian cortex is prepared in thin strips so that they can be preserved with cryoprotectants. When these strips are inserted, spontaneous revascularization is enhanced. The procedure is simple enough to be performed under local anesthesia.
