Embryo Lawsuit Alleges Mishandling by Fertility Clinics

Audet & Partners, LLP is investigating claims as part of an embryo lawsuit brought against fertility clinics located in Cleveland and San Francisco.  The claims allege that the clinics may have mishandled thousands of frozen eggs and embryos in a way that compromised their viability.  The Cleveland clinic in question is located at University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center.  The San Francisco location is the Pacific Fertility Clinic.  Information recently surfaced suggesting that the temperature of the tissue storage banks, in which eggs and embryos are stored in liquid nitrogen, may have unexpectedly fluctuated.

The situation is potentially traumatic to thousands of families and is complicated by the fact that the eggs and embryos must be completely thawed in order to determine whether they remain viable.  The problem in thawing, however, is that once thawed,  the eggs and embryos cannot be refrozen.
