Abstract

216 SIVF transvaginal oocyte retrievals were performed under conscious sedation with Versed/Demerol. 2,677 total oocytes were retrieved in this group. After a change in anesthesia protocol, 259 SIVF patients underwent the same procedure with general anesthesia using Propofol, yielding 3,053 oocytes. No significant difference was noted in number of oocytes retrieved per patient (12.39 in the Versed/Demerol group; 11.79 in the Propofol group). A similar percentage of oocytes were noted to be in the MII stage in both anesthesia groups (78.1% in the Versed/Demerol group; 79.2% in the Propofol group). The number of oocytes transferred per patient was 1.7 in both groups. Fertilization rates were similar in both protocols (74.6% in the Versed/Demerol group; 77.1% in the Propofol group).

543 NCIVF patients underwent transvaginal oocyte retrieval with Versed/Demerol. 488 total oocytes were retrieved. 549 NCIVF patients underwent the same procedure with Propofol, resulting in 477 oocytes. Similar to findings in the SIVF cohort, no significant difference was noted in number of oocytes retrieved per patient (0.90 in the Versed/Demerol group; 0.87 in the Propofol group). A similar percentage of oocytes were noted to be in the MII stage in both groups, as well (82.2% in the Versed/Demerol group; 83.9% in the Propofol group). Number of oocytes transferred per patient was 1.0 in both groups. Fertilization rates were similar in both protocols (84.5% in the Versed/Demerol group; 84.8% in the Propofol group).
