Local anaesthesia needle (LAN)

Local anaesthesia needle (LAN) is designed for application of local anaesthetics prior to transvaginal oocyte retrieval. With the pre-ovarian block (POB) technique, local anaesthetic is deposited with ultrasound guidance in an optimal place in the vaginal wall near the ovary. The follicle aspiration needle is then introduced at the site of the deposited anaesthetic. The needle is equipped with a luer-lock for connecting a syringe. 

Benefits with local anaesthesia and conscious sedation during oocyte retrieval

Prof. Wikland has been using local anaesthesia together with conscious sedation since he started performing oocyte retrievals in the 1980´s. In this short movie where he explains why using local anaesthesia together with conscious sedation is beneficial, he also explains how to perform the procedure. The LAN-needle can be used in this procedure.
