Embryo transfer procedure for in vitro fertilization - IVF

Laparoscopic  Ovum Pickup

Dr R K Mishra

Introduction:

The ovum pick up method is an important surgical approach associated in the IVF cycle. It's also sometimes called egg harvesting, egg pick-up, OPU and oocyte pick-up or egg collection. Reacquiring eggs for fertilization is performed, with vaginal ultrasound egg collection procedure; a small needle with an adhered interior ultrasound probe is placed into the vagina and slightly moved by means of the top wall of the vagina. The ultrasound makes it possible to insert the needle into every follicle and extract the fluid via a tube. The image is appeared on the ultrasound screen. The process takes about 20 minutes to complete.

Laparoscopic ovum pickup technique:

The additional process of ovum pick up is laparoscopic ovum pickup. At the time of this process a fiber-optic nerve with a small video camera is placed into the belly by means of a tiny cleft just beneath the belly button. Carbon dioxide is jacked inside the abdominal cavity by a needle to overstate it and produce working space. When the egg reacquirement is done, the clefts are stitched blocked with absorbable stitches. Many women have a laparoscopy as part of the investigations into their infertility, and so will be familiar with the basics of this procedure. The laparoscopy for ovum pick up is different in that it usually involves the insertion of three instruments into the woman's abdomen, and therefore three small incisions, one or two of which may require a stitch. The laparoscope is inserted through a small incision at the lower edge of the navel. This enables the physician to see the ovaries and the follicles containing the eggs. A second small incision is made, usually on one side of the abdomen, through which an instrument is inserted to hold the ovaries in place. The needle for removing the eggs is inserted through a third small incision, again usually at one side of the abdomen.

However, as a rule, this procedure is carried out on a day-case basis. The woman is admitted to hospital just over 30 hours after the final hCG injection, leaving enough time to prepare for the surgery. Once the procedure is complete, she spends a few hours recovering from the anaesthetic in the afternoon or early evening. However, as a rule, this procedure is carried out on a day-case basis.

Pain Alleviation in the course of ovum pick up:

Most women don't feel extreme pain in the course of procedure, but frequently two options are applied. The first and most common option is a gentle soothing and local anesthetic. The second option is general anesthesia.

The Risks associated with laparoscopic ovum pick up:

The laparoscopic ovum pick up technique can trigger gentle to cost-effective physical pain. Some women feel a very short d period of sharp pain during the ovum retrieval. There's the opportunity of bleeding from the ovary or the top of the vagina during or after the egg collection. In severe and very rare cases a blood transfusion may be essential. There's a less risk of infection which can be immediately treated with antibiotics. There's also an extremely high risk of destroy to the internal organs like the blood vessels, bowels or bladder. There is some pain, bruising and itching around the cut for several days after the procedure. It can take seven days to recover from laparoscopic egg collection.

Conclusion:

Therefore, it may be concluded as the laparoscopic ovum pick up method is an important and reliable surgical approach associated in the invitro fertilization cycle. However the women feel less pain and fewer discomforts throughout the course of ovum pick up by means of general sedation. It can take seven days to recover from laparoscopic egg collection.
