University Hospitals statement concerning fertility clinic

Cryogenic storage containers for eggs to be used for invitro fertilization are

A liquid nitrogen tank at the clinic located outside Cleveland, where more than 2,000 frozen embryos and eggs are stored, unexpectedly heated up. This is the same day that a freezer problem occurred at the University Hospitals in Cleveland.

"People are planning their families based off this technology so we've actually ordered a third alarm system for every tank, that's separate from the tank, so it's gonna be an independent alarm system we hope will help us", he said.

"The value of the eggs and embryos that Plaintiff and other class members entrusted to Defendants - and for which Defendants accepted legal responsibility to store, preserve, and protect - is substantial", according to the complaint.

An investigation has also been launched at the Pacific Fertility Center in San Francisco, where patients were recently notified of a similar tank failure.

The San Francisco center states that its system is equipped with a sensor, and an alarm.

One of his new clients, Kate Plants, had a rushed round of fertility treatments at the University Hospitals clinic to retrieve eggs when, months after she and her husband, Jeremy, married in fall 2014, a softball-sized cyst turned out to be ovarian cancer. He also stated that this is the first time that something like this happened.

A spokesman for the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, a major professional organization, said such large-scale incidents appear to be unprecedented. He stated that it is highly unlikely for two things like this to happen on the same day.

"Now that we have a second incident, it becomes very important that we learn as much as we can about both, to search for commonalities and see if there are. risks that have now come to light that need to be addressed", he said.

University Hospitals stated that they are investigating the cause of the freezer failure.

If doctors were to implant a damaged embryo, it might not lead to a pregnancy, but if it did, it would not raise the danger of birth defects in the child, Ball said. "To double check the equipment, levels of liquid nitrogen are checked daily", he says.

Summary: An Ohio hospital is being sued for accidentally destroying thousands of stored eggs and embryos.

The procedure to have eggs removed then freeze them, or combine them with an embryo can cost upwards of $15,000 - and often isn't covered by insurance. The extent of the damage is unknown.

"The Pacific Fertility Center clarified via a statement that viable tissue was recovered from one tank, and that the vast majority of eggs and embryos in the lab were unaffected".

A lawsuit has been filed against University Hospitals.

"Keep in mind that these families have entrusted their most valuable property in the entire world - their frozen embryos - to these facilities and clinics", Peiffer Rosca Wolf attorney Adam Wolf said in a news release issued Monday.

"You can imagine how devastating it would be to realize your son or daughter has been lost", Scott said.

Many people are feeling confusion, anger and sorrow.
