Abstract

Abstract Background: Ultrasonically guided transvaginal oocyte retrieval is a relatively short procedure that is performed on an outpatient basis. Any anaesthetic technique may interfere with certain aspects of human oocyte fertilisation or embryo implantation. The optimal anaesthetic technique should allow good surgical anaesthesia with minimal side effects, a short recovery time and high rate of successful pregnancy. Method: We present our experience and evaluation of the various techniques studied to carry out this technique. Results and Conclusion: Amongst the various available total intravenous anaesthesia options, propofol/ remifentanil or fentanyl technique of sedation appears to be safe and effective.
