PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To review the most recent literature on anesthesia for in-vitro fertilization. RECENT FINDINGS: Very limited new information has become available in the review period. Propofol seems to be an acceptable option for anesthesia/sedation during in-vitro fertilization but more research is necessary to definitively establish its safety. Remifentanil is also an effective alternative. SUMMARY: Presently, propofol and remifentanil seem to be acceptable options for anesthesia for in-vitro fertilization but further research is required.
