In vitro fertilization and development of bovine oocytes recovered from the ovaries of individual donors: a comparison between the cutting and aspiration method



In vitro fertilization and development of bovine oocytes recovered from the ovaries of individual donors: a comparison between the cutting and aspiration method



Theriogenology 39(3): 703-712



Bovine oocytes were recovered from ovaries by either the cutting or the aspiration method, after which the oocytes were fertilized and cultured in vitro to investigate their developmental ability. In the cutting method, the surface and the interior of ovaries were cut with a set of 10 razors stacked at 2-mm intervals in modified TCM-199 medium supplemented with 5% fetal bovine serum; the liberated oocytes were then collected. In the aspiration method all visible follicles (2 to 5 mm in diameter) at the ovarian surface were aspirated with a syringe and an 18-gauge needle. Significantly more oocytes were recovered by the cutting than the aspiration method (mean: 63.3 vs 22.1), and the proportion of Rank A oocytes was also higher for the cutting method (84.6 vs 41.3%). Although no significant differences were observed between the 2 methods in the proportion of fertilized oocytes developing to the blastocyst stage in culture, the average number of blastocysts obtained by the cutting method was about 3.6-fold higher than by aspiration. The blastocysts were transferred nonsurgically to 37 (cutting method) and 36 (aspiration method) recipients, and 22 (59.0%) and 19 (52.8%), respectively, became pregnant.
