Objectives: Ovarian transposition is a procedure that can help preserve fertility for female patients requiring radiation in the abdominopelvic region (1,2). However, the displacement of ovaries from its original anatomic location can make oocyte retrieval challenging (3).

Case Presentation: A 24-year-old nulligravid patient recently diagnosed with colorectal carcinoma (CRC) underwent ovarian transposition prior to radiation. After radiation and chemotherapy, she began in vitro fertilization (IVF) by reproductive endocrinology and infertility physicians. Right ovary demonstrated non viability due to failed transposition and radiation. Left ovarian oocytes were not able to be harvested due to risk of left kidney puncture via trans vaginal ultrasound (TVUS). Interventional Radiology (IR) was involved and performed a trans abdominal ultrasound guided egg retrieval which led to successful IVF.

Conclusion: This case highlights the utility of IR-assisted trans abdominal ultrasound approach for oocyte retrieval in patients with history of ovarian transposition.
