Echoguided transvaginal oocyte retrieval gives good results even when carried out after a short training course. This study compares the results obtained by a group of physicians with long experience and a newly-trained group. No significant differences were found in the percentages of follicles punctured (87.9% vs. 91.9%), of oocytes recovered (62.8 vs 70.6%), in the mean number of follicles aspirated (4.5 vs 4.1) or in duration of the procedure (33.9 min vs 34.2 min). No complications occurred in the retrieval and the patients, pain was very slight.
