Definition : Single-lumen aspiration needles designed for retrieval and collection of ova. These devices usually consist of a relatively large-lumen (17 gauge is typical), noncoring needle, 24 to 32 cm (9 to 13 inches) in length. Ovum-collection needles usually include marks that can be easily visualized using both ultrasonic imaging equipment and a vacuum line attached to the proximal end.
