Author information

Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Stanford University School of Medicine, California.


Local anesthesia with conscious sedation is well accepted by patients and provides scheduling flexibility, cost containment, patient safety, and ease of recovery. We believe the technique should be offered to selected patients undergoing intrafallopian transfer. By adhering to specific guidelines for surgical technique and monitoring, the procedure is a safe and acceptable alternative to general anesthesia for laparoscopic intrafallopian transfers.
