The opportunity to become a mother was saved to an oncopatient from Bryansk
Our patient is only 28 years old, but she has already faced a very formidable diagnosis – Ewing’s sarcoma, that is, in her case, tibial sarcoma.
Having applied to the MRSC named after A.F. Tsyba, our patient was offered not only to carry out complex treatment, but also to preserve her reproductive function so that the treatment of a complex disease would not deprive her of the opportunity to become a mother.
This procedure is called cryopreservation of genetic material, which will be performed by our specialists of the Department of New Medical Technologies with the group of treatment of breast diseases of the A.F. Tsyba MRSC. It is headed by MD, Professor Marina Kiseleva. During this procedure, surgical intervention is performed in order to obtain the eggs and ovarian tissue of the patient, after which the resulting material is stored in the Biobank of the Center. Cryopreservation is carried out according to the CHI program and is available to absolutely all cancer patients of the Russian Federation.
In the very near future, our patient will have a comprehensive treatment: she will undergo a course of gonadotoxic chemotherapy to reduce the tumor (by the way, it is drug therapy that can affect the death of eggs), and then reconstructive plastic surgery to restore the joint. And only after successful treatment and removal of all possible risks of recurrence of a malignant tumor, she will be examined for reproductive function and, according to the decision of the council, the transfer of eggs into the uterine cavity or autotransplantation of ovarian tissue will be performed. We wish our patient a speedy recovery, and, of course, the opportunity to fully experience the happiness of motherhood.
Meanwhile, according to Professor Marina Kiseleva, any patient who has had cancer can carry out cryopreservation of the materials of his reproductive system.
