EQUIVET Cervix Forceps
A majority of embryos transferred in the mare are done by non-surgical
transcervical embryo transfer.
Sandra Wilsher has together with the other members of the Fertility Unit
in Cambridge, UK, modified the standard trans-cervical transfer procedure.
I nitially the mare is sedated and the hind end washed and disinfected.
A duck-billed Polansky´s speculum is placed in the vagina to visualize the
external os of the cervix. Using the EQUIVET Cervix Forceps, the cervix is
then grasped in the ventral quadrant and pulled caudal to straighten the
cervical canal. A disposable insemination pipette covered with a plastic
sheath is used to transfer the embryo.
By using this technique the embryo is kept away from naturally occurring
bacteria from vulva and vagina, thus reducing the risk of contamination.
At the same time it also increases the success rate for a veterinarian, who
does not perform a large number of embryo transfers. These forceps have
an improved handle, which facilitates controlled opening and closing.
