Abstract

The self-evident advantages of ultrasound-guided follicle aspiration for the collection of oocytes have led to the rapid acceptance of this procedure in
many in vitro fertilization (IVF) programs. A direct approach may be made to the ovary by a transabdominal or transvaginal route when the ovaries lie in otherwise inaccessible positions, but most operators favor a transvesical route if possible, with the aspiration needle introduced through the abdominal wall, vagina, or urethra. As most other centers, we have used a Foley catheter to fill and control the volume of fluid in the bladder when using a transvesical approach. We wish to draw attention to the cytotoxic effects of some commonly used Foley catheters, constructed wholly or in part of natural rubber, which may significantly impair the chances of successful fertilization when used in this way
during oocyte recovery.
