The Authors describe their anaesthetic technique with a continuous i.v. infusion of propofol in female patients undergoing oocyte retrieval during in vitro fertilization. With this technique a great stability of the haemodynamic and respiratory parameters was recorded, adverse effects were never observed and every patient quickly regained a normal psychomotor performance. This operation can be, therefore, carried out in ambulatory regimen with complete safety and good acceptability from the patients.
