Fertility Clinic aware many about their damaged egg & embryos

It's also representing clients involved in the recent fertility clinic case in San Francisco.

The hospital started contacting each of the families last week to determine how they would like to proceed with their eggs and embryos.

Herbert says the clinic's staff thawed a few eggs and found they remain viable, but they have not checked any of the embryos.

"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.

The clinics in San Francisco and Cleveland both say storage tanks didn't keep specimens at the required super-cold temperatures for several hours.

Dareus, Glenn and Tyord Taylor - once his trade to Cleveland becomes official - will account for $31.4 million in dead money. Buffalo moves up to the Bengals spot at No. 12 in the draft and the Bengals will now draft at No. 21 in the first round.

In order to check viability, the eggs and embryos have to be thawed and then implanted.

Dr. Kevin Doody, lab director at the Center for Assisted Reproduction in Texas and past president of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology, told The Associated Press that the almost simultaneous storage failures are "beyond stunning" but appear to be "just a bad, bad, bad coincidence". Too little liquid nitrogen causes the temperature to rise, with a risk of damage to the tissue housed in vials called cryolocks. Embryos - fertilized eggs - are stored individually.

University Hospitals - which runs the fertility clinic - released a statement apologizing for the incident and promising to help patients in any way possible.

It is the second clinic to report a fault that weekend. That's when the clinic performed an "emergency filling", where the tank with depleted levels of liquid nitrogen was refilled.

A spokesperson with the clinic told the post that an estimated 15 percent of the clinic's total number of eggs and embryos were in the damaged tank. While the staff spent days sorting through records to verify which patients' tissue was inside, he said they do not yet know how many of them were still planning to use it. The only way to determine if they've been damaged is to let them thaw, but they can not be frozen again.

Herbert who is a physician and researcher in assisted reproductive technology talks about the same.

Lawsuits are piling up against University Hospitals Fertility Center in Cleveland, after more than 600 women and couples were informed their frozen eggs and embryos may have been damaged.

University Hospitals officials say procedure fees could be waived for future treatment, according to CNN affiliate WEWS.
