Many technologies exist for men and women to preserve fertility, and advances are being made all the time. Sadly, this information is not always well known in the oncology community and is, therefore, not presented to all eligible cancer patients. Reflecting the latest advances in the field and offering practical information useful to clinicians and scientists, ‘Preservation of Fertility’ addresses new concepts, progress in reproductive techniques, novel treatment modalities, pregnancy after cancer treatment, patient care issues, and professional responsibilities. Tulandi and Gosden have assembled an outstanding group of internationally recognized specialists to address the entire spectrum of issues regarding fertility preservation. They begin with a discussion of age and fertility, epidemiology of cancer survival and fertility, and the vulnerability of the reproductive system to radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The book includes coverage of methods for preserving fertility, new developments in the laboratory for preserving gametes and gonadal tissue, and the psychosocial, legal, and ethical issues of fertility preservation. A powerful knowledge tool for the medical community, this pioneering book provides a complete understanding of the techniques for preserving fertility.
