Fertility Clinics Facing Outrage After Egg, Embryo Storage Failures

Fertility Clinics Facing Outrage After Egg, Embryo Storage Failures

Two fertility clinics across the country from each other experienced equipment failures on the same day that may have damaged hundreds of frozen eggs and embryos, something that a fertility expert called a stunning coincidence and that is already producing lawsuits from crestfallen couples.

The hospital started contacting each of the families last week to determine how they would like to proceed with their eggs and embryos. In the case in OH, the facility said the only way to determine the viability of the eggs and the embryos of 700 patients is to fully thaw them. Embryos - fertilized eggs - are stored individually. "The clinic has reported the incident to the College of American Pathologists, which certifies labs, and the overseers of California's tissue banks", Herbert said.

"You don't even think about what's happening in the lab", said patient Katie Miller, a patient who has stored embryos stored at the center. They sent an email to patients who were affected, saying, in part: "While assisted reproductive technologies never come with guaranteed results, we are committed to exceptional patient care and to employing the highest quality practices in our laboratory". This update by the spokesman is made when the updated about the damage of these eggs and embryos comes in front of all.

He says the clinic has put in place more failsafe measures to prevent a repeat. Herbert told the Post some of the eggs in the tank had been tested, and were undamaged.

The hospital has issued an apology after the unexplained malfunction caused temperatures inside the storage tank to rise. "Everyone who has talked to their doctor has been told 'your embryos are not viable.' It appears this is far more catastrophic than what was originally reported". Herbert said the problem was "immediately rectified", and he also praised the clinic's decision to replace the troubled tank with the new one. Herbert said, for patients still eager to use their eggs or embryos to try to become pregnant, the physicians and other staff will first thaw them to find out whether they are viable.

"They turned on the TV and saw it themselves and thought 'We have just lost our family's most valuable treasure, '" DiCello said.

The family also says the hospital did not notify them of the issue for almost a week.

In the earlier incident Ohio, UH officials notified about 700 patients that their frozen eggs and embryos may have been damaged. He moved to San Francisco in 1990 and, with colleagues, purchased Pacific Fertility Center nine years later.

Hospital officials said in a statement on Thursday that they were investigating the incident and that it remained unknown whether the cause there was a human error or mechanical failure.
