Tetsuo Otani, MD, CEO
a pioneer and one of the leading IVF-experts in Japan:
Since we started using the needle, we are getting almost 100% of oocytes from the follicles. It is very important for older patients undergoing minimal stimulation protocol since they don't have many follicles to start from. Even more, retrieving eggs from large enough follicles which contain good oocytes is sometimes difficult.
With Steiner needle, it's possible to get good quality oocytes from these patients.

a pioneer and one of the leading IVF-experts in Atlanta:
I love the concept of Dr Steiner system. I am looking for a randomized trial with it. a couple of centers who do not flush currently could do this and we could have an answer. attention to the statistical design would be imperative. a "study " of 25 -50 patients is not what we need.
